  •  Solar heated pools
  • Geothermal systems
  • Sustainable flooring, cabinets, and countertops
  • Solar blinds and screens
  • LED lighting
  • Insulation and air sealing
  • Fibreglass windows
  • HRVs and tankless water heaters

Attendees will be guided through the green renovations in each home and also have the unique opportunity to speak directly to homeowners, energy advisors, building professionals and contractors.

From 160 year old farm houses near Kemptville to infill developments in Hintonburg, The Green Homes Showcase has something for everyone.

Best of all, the event is free and gives participants access to 10 unique homes and dozens of professionals in one day.
