As we are now in our eighth year, it was getting a little messy in there and badly needed a clean up! With help and suggestions from readers we have modernized not only the logo and the way the site looks, but the way it operates. It is now easier than ever to find the information you are looking for.

Along with finally being mobile and tablet-friendly, you can find what you are looking for in a click or two in the following ways:

  • Intuitive Search Engine: start typing what you're looking for in the search bar at the top and see the options
  • Ask A PRO Advice section: If you don’t find what you’re looking for, ask a question!

Whatever your current level of building knowledge is, Ecohome is where Canadians and other cold-climate dwellers can find the information they need on healthy, durable and efficient homes.

We have partnered with a select group of eco-responsible, high-performance manufacturers to make sure we can provide all this to you for free.

And become a part of it - there is no climate that poses greater challenges to builders and buildings than the Great White North where we have frigid winters and blazing, humid summers. So if you built a stellar house in a cold climate, tell us about it!

And for the innovators among you - if you tried something new and it worked, we want to know about it. If you tried something and it failed, well, we want to know about that too. This is the place to learn from each others’ successes and failures. And in that spirit… this website is new and still has some bugs to work out so if you see a broken link, a spelling error or a hole in our content you think should be filled, we’d love to hear from you. Thanks!
