Regional Energy Efficiency Program (REEP)

SEE THE HEAT
The See The Heat program provides the opportunity to take home a thermal imaging camera that connects to your smart phone to learn more about the energy efficiency of your home.  A thermal imaging camera allows you to see how well your house is insulated, how well doors and windows seal, what plug in’s and outlets are particularly leaky, and the effects of leaving chimney flues open when not in use. 

Thermal images are an interesting way to see your house in a new light, and learn about the opportunities that you might have to improve the comfort and energy performance of your house.

How to Participate
In partnership with Wildsight and Beyond Recycling, the program is being piloted in 3 classrooms across the RDCK - Twin Rivers Elementary in Castlegar,  Adam Robertson Elementary in Creston, JV Humphries Elementary in Kaslo. We plan to offer the cameras for general availability in the fall.

There are also instructions which can be downloaded here for how to get the most out of your time with the camera.
