Home energy renovation - Barrie Ontario

Barrie homeowner Patricia Cawley and her son had lived in their two-storey home for nine years, when she decided it was finally time to replace the home’s old heating system.

While it still worked to heat the home, the home’s boiler was as old as the 1958 house, and not as energy-efficient as it once was.

When Cawley saw a newspaper advertisement for the Canadian government’s ecoENERGY Retrofit-Homes initiative, a program that was available between 2007 and 2010, she learned that she could get grants and rebates for improving her home. The program, she says, “moved the decision forward in terms of timing.”

The ecoENERGY program sounded like “a great way to make upgrades to the house, so it’s more affordable and energy efficient,” Cawley says. To qualify for the program, she had a energy audit, which revealed a lot of useful information about her home’s efficiency and energy use patterns.

EnerGuide rating

During the home’s energy audit, Cawley’s Energy Advisor determined that her home rated 47 on the EnerGuide scale, out of a possible 100 points.

The rating meant it was much less efficient than other homes of its age in the Barrie area. But by making just one simple change — upgrading her home’s heating system — Cawley could improve the home’s score by almost 12 points, which would put it above the average of 57 points.

High-efficiency boiler

It was definitely time to replace the home’s boiler, Cawley decided, especially since a new high-efficiency gas boiler, which would heat the water for her home’s radiators more cost-effectively than the old one did, was eligible for hundreds of dollars in grants and rebates from the Canada and Ontario governments.

Attic insulation

After replacing the boiler, Cawley wanted to save even more money and energy, so she turned to her home energy audit report for further energy-saving ideas.

She learned that by adding insulation to her basement and attic, she could improve her home’s EnerGuide score by another 12 points. It made sense to add as much insulation as she could, and get grants for that work, too.

Now, she says, she enjoys “more even heat” in her home, and her heating costs are lower, too. Plus, she’s saving nearly six tonnes of greenhouse gases every year — a savings that will help the environment as much as it does her budget.
