Home energy renovation - London Ontario

Small changes to a home can make a big difference to its energy efficiency. And small improvements in home energy efficiency can have a big impact on the cost of gas and electricity bills.

That’s what London homeowner N. Melnyk discovered when she was getting ready to replace her old furnace with a high-efficiency one.

High-efficiency furnace

The 1979 London home’s old furnace was a mid-efficiency gas furnace, with a low 60 percent annual fuel-use efficiency (AFUE). That means that it only converted 60 percent of the natural gas energy it used, into heat for Melnyk’s one-storey home.

A higher efficiency condensing gas furnace could not only save energy, but could save her money by converting more of the natural gas into heat. She’d have lower fuel bills and a more comfortable home.

Melnyk decided to make the change, not only for the cost and energy savings, but because installing a new high-efficiency condensing gas furnace was a smart choice for getting government grants. The high-efficiency furnace was eligible for more than $1,000 in combined grants and rebates from Canada’s ecoENERGY Retrofit-Homes initiative and the Ontario government’s Home Energy Savings program.

Central air conditioning

Because there were more grants available for additional energy-saving renovations, Melnyk’s home energy savings efforts didn’t stop there. She replaced her central air conditioner with an Energy Star-rated central air conditioning unit, and added new high-efficiency Energy Star-rated windows to replace old windows.

The combination of high-performance windows with efficient heating and cooling equipment lets the home stay warmer, or cooler, longer and with the most efficiency.

Insulation and air sealing

There’s a great difference in my heating bills. I’ve kept my thermostat at the same setting but I’ve seen a reduction in my heating bills.
N. Melnyk, London Ontario

Melnyk had a contractor install additional insulation in the home’s attic to keep the home at a more even temperature. And to prevent drafts and heat loss through cracks and gaps in the home’s walls and around windows and doors, she did simple air sealing measures, like installing foam gaskets in electrical outlets and replacing the weatherstripping around doors.

The results, Melnyk says, are remarkable. “There’s a great difference in my heating bills. I’ve kept my thermostat at the same setting but I’ve seen a reduction in my heating bills. I was working last year and am retired now, but I can’t believe that my heating bill is actually lower than when I was working and away from home.”

People should try to do everything they can to reduce their carbon footprint.
N. Melnyk, London Ontario

In addition to saving money as she heads into retirement, she’s happy to know she’s doing her part for the environment. Canadians should do energy renovations “to save our planet. People should try to do everything they can to reduce their carbon footprint. Even if it is something small.”
