First Issue of Newsletter from Canadian Centre for Housing Technology

Here's an email from Marianne Armstrong of CCHT. I was in touch with her regarding her recent study on the use of gas fireplaces as a primary heating source in homes (see post elsewhere). Ms. Armstrong has begun a biannual newsletter and a link to her first edition, as well as subscription information, is below.

Thanks for getting back in touch!
 
The newsletter is impressive and I'll put a link on HEP, as well as subscription info.
All of our in-boxes are filling up fast these days, but I'm confident that, at the very least, folks in our northern states will want to keep on top of developments in the Great White North....eh :-)?
 
Be well,
Steve

Dear Mr. Waclo,

Thank you very much for taking the time to send me an e-mail. It’s nice to hear that your real life experience agrees with our experiments. And thank you for spreading our findings!

 

You may also be interested to know that we recently started publishing an e-Newsletter.

 

The first edition can be found here: http://www.ccht-cctr.gc.ca/obj/docs/newsletter/fall_2010.pdf

I plan to publish this newsletter about twice a year (I’d better get writing for spring!)

 

You can subscribe if interested at this link: http://www.ccht-cctr.gc.ca/eng/subscribe.html

 

All the best,

Marianne
