Retrofit Pages: Information for Tenants and Landlords


THIS IS A COMMUNITY PROJECT,
organized by the Perth County Sustainability Hub. You are warmly invited to help out.

If you have information that belongs here, please let us know, either through the suggestion box, which goes directly to the page editors, or by using the public discussion form at the end of this page. You will notice comments in blue throughout this project; these are for the team of editors creating this page. Your suggestions will be added as well.

MOST OF ALL, we need your questions, because that is always the best place to begin.

THIS PAGE IS A DRAFT.

Please keep checking back as we find information to help people in Perth County learn about retrofit projects. Information on loans, grants and other financial information is at the end of this page, and within relevant articles.

WE ARE LOOKING FOR LOCAL INFORMATION on inspectors, advisors and contractors.

We are just starting to enter recommendations for inspectors and contractors.  If you can complete our information, please let us know, using the contact box below.

London’s TENANT AND LANDLORD SUSTAINABILITY GUIDE provides a wealth of information on how to live more sustainably and save money at the same time.

WEATHERPROOFING

information should be entered in the boxes below if it applies to landlords and tenants. In other words, if it’s about how a heat pump works, that goes on the main page. If it’s about how a heat pump should be installed in a multistorey apartment, or if it talks about ev charger regulations for landlords, it goes here. If you mention a loan/grant, it should be linked to the financial page, so we keep all that in one place.

Unless you think that’s confusing? All of this can be changed. It will be easier once we put it together.

Windows

Doors

HEAT PUMPS
