EMBERS Green Renovations is a non-profit, social enterprise providing home renovations and energy efficient solutions. Our mission is to create new green jobs, push more sustainable building practices and fund charity activities. All profits are reinvested into programs that help people get back back to work.
Our Renovations Division offers general contracting services including kitchen and bathroom remodelling, flooring, painting, drywall, stucco and other general home upgrades. Our Weatherization Division offers draft-proofing, weather stripping,
ventilation and insulation services designed to reduce energy
consumption, save energy costs, and make homes more comfortable
throughout the year.
EMBERS Green Renovations started with a pilot program developed in conjunction with and supported by the City of Vancouver, Fortis BC and BC Hydro in September 2010. During this time, EMBERS Green Renovations worked with 50 Vancouver homes to measure the benefits of home weatherization/draft-proofing. The results demonstrated that a relative modest investment in air sealing would cut homeowners' heating bills by 15-30%. The weatherization division of EMBERS Green Renovations has since grown to become one of BC's leading providers of weatherization services and is a preferred supplier under the LiveSmart program. Our weatherization services have to date helped home owners reduce their carbon footprint by approximately 1,100 tons.
In 2011, EMBERS Green Renovation diversified its services to include general contracting services to meet our clients demands for high quality renovation and repair services that were more sustainable yet affordable.
