  • Discover air leaks in your home using the Thermal Leak Detector.
  • Test out the ultra-efficient LED light bulb.
  • See how efficient your showerhead is with an easy test.

Why?

Across the region we consume enough energy and fossil fuels to emit more than 1.4 million tonnes of GHG emissions each year. Our transportation, building lighting and heating, and waste generation choices have a big impact on the environment and on our wallets. It is estimated that we collectively spend nearly $700 million dollars on energy and fuel each year. While we know it will take a huge shift in behaviour, technology and policy to achieve substantial GHG reductions, there are many actions we can do at home to improve efficiency and reduce our impact.

The kits are currently available through all ten branches of the Greater Victoria Public Library, the Salt Spring Island Public Library, the Sooke, North Saanich / Sidney and Port Renfew Branch of the Vancouver Island Regional Library and the Camosun College Library.
