Today’s heat pumps can stretch your energy budget

Heat pumps have been around for a long time, so you may have heard of them. But what you may NOT know is that heat pump technology has advanced tremendously in recent years, and has become one of the most energy efficient ways to heat your home.

And heating your home is not the only thing that heat pumps are being used for nowadays. There are now high efficiency heat pump water heaters (like the one we have installed at Reep House) and heat pump clothes dryers on the market as well.

The Home Reno Rebate program now includes rebates for air source heat pumps. This incentive is especially interesting if you own an electrically-heated home.

Come to the Reep House for our Heat Pump Workshop and learn about all the options, and take a look at our new heat pump water heater.


Brendan SchaeferBrendan Schaefer  is the Facilities Manager at the Reep House for Sustainable Living, where he regularly leads tours and workshops on topics ranging from energy efficiency to water conservation, storm water management, and sustainable living. He visits many homes to advise their owners as a Registered Energy Advisor, a RAIN Guide or to conduct visits on how to conserve water.

Reep House for Sustainable Living

20 Mill Street, Kitchener (near Queen St.)

  • OPEN HOUSE: 1 – 5 P.M.

  • Presentation: 1:30 p.m.

  • Questions & Answers: 2 p.m.

Stay to explore the Reep House for Sustainable Living. Or come to check out the house’s environmental features.


We encourage the use of active transportation such as walking or biking. The house is just off the Iron Horse Trail and we have a bike rack.

It is also easily accessible by GRT bus routes that use Queen and have stops near Mill St.

If you drive, please consider carpooling with others you know are attending.

Since the house only has a few parking spots, we have arranged for parking spaces in the Joseph Schneider Haus lot around the corner on Queen St.
