Upgrading Your HVAC – What Homeowners Need to Know EVANSTON

03/12/2023 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm CDT

Take this informational workshop to learn all about HVAC systems!

In the US, Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) accounted for 46% of energy consumed by residential and commercial buildings in 2021. New laws and technologies have been designed to bring that number down. Come learn how these changes will impact your home and what you can do to lower your energy usage. We’ll cover:

  • How HVAC systems work
  • Overview of new technologies/products to consider
  • Key environmental considerations when replacing your HVAC, e.g., refrigerant
  • What questions to ask when looking for a contractor

Our presenter is Rory Toelle. Rory is a union trained residential HVAC worker who has been in the industry since 2007. In addition to his industry work, Rory is an instructor in Rebuilding Exchange’s Workforce training program. Rory’s work is environmentally focused with a strong emphasis on the safe disposal of refrigerants.


Additional parking available along Hartrey St. or in the lot at the southwest corner of Dempster and Hartrey.

All materials are included in the workshop fee.
