The CHBA-NL will be hosting a media event to formally launch our Energy Efficiency video series, made possible with funding provided by Natural Resources Canada (NRCAN), consisting of four 3-minute long videos to help educate consumers on the basics of home energy efficiency, insulation, mechanical systems and the structural elements of a highly efficient home.
