The Toronto’s Greenest Neighbourhoods project encourages homeowners of single family dwellings to take advantage of the programs and rebates currently available to help improve the energy efficiency of their homes. This project has partnered with three community organizations, who will deliver information on home energy efficiency to homeowners in their communities. The City has also partnered with MyHEAT to provide heat loss maps to six neighbourhoods across Toronto. The project will run until November 2018.

 

For a limited time, residents in the following areas can view an aerial heat loss map (image) of their home to see where their home is losing heat:

  • Northern boundary of Ward 13 and Rockcliffe Smythe neighbourhood
  • The Pocket (Blake-Jones neighbourhood in Ward 30)
  • Ward 14

The images were taken during a flyover last fall by MyHEAT.

You can also compare your home’s heat loss to the average in your neighbourhood, and to the rating that we need to achieve in Toronto in order to mitigate climate change.

View your home’s heat loss

Toronto’s homes and buildings generate about half of the greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) that contribute to climate change. It’s a startling fact.

To mitigate the worst impacts of climate change, all existing homes and buildings in Toronto need to be much more energy efficient than they are today – 40% more efficient, on average, by 2050.

With simple solutions, low-interest loans, and thousands of dollars in rebates available right now, there’s never been a better time to improve the energy efficiency of your home.
