Cost-Effective Solutions for Residential Electrification
In this webinar, building science consultant Steve Easley explores how to create energy efficient, low-emissions, all-electric homes that meet our electrification challenges.
The biggest challenge to the full-scale electrification of homes in the U.S. is outdated infrastructure and inadequate electrical grid capacity. There simply isn’t enough localized grid storage or grid capacity for homes to have electric heat, water heating, cooking and vehicle charging. If electrification is going to happen in a timely manner, it will have to occur on the customer side of the meter.
Steve Easley, building science consultant, offers real-world examples and case studies that highlight cost effective, practical solutions for home electrification that can be implemented today, such as inverter-driven heat pumps for cold and warm climates, heat pump water heating, induction cooking and heat pump clothes dryers. Easley will also identify the top design and installation mistakes that lead to poor performance, customer dissatisfaction, and call backs.
