Insulation saves energy

Home energy renovation - London Ontario

Kelly Elliott and her husband are a young couple with a baby in London, Ontario.

Their cute 1958 storey-and-a-half house is fine for their growing family right now, but they also know it’s also a “starter” house, which they may sell in a few years.

That’s why the Elliotts decided to have a home energy audit. By making energy-saving renovations, they would see energy cost savings in the short term — and a greater resale value for their London home in the long term.

Elliott’s sister referred her to a London Home Energy Advisor, who recommended several improvements to make the home more energy efficient and qualify the Elliotts for grants and rebates under the Canadian government’s ecoENERGY Retrofit-Homes initiative, and the Ontario government’s Home Energy Savings program.

Attic and basement insulation

One of the main renovations was to add more insulation, which Elliott knew was needed. The London home’s old insulation was definitely not up to standard, says Elliott, explaining the home was too cold in the winter and too warm in the summer. The home lost much of its energy through the roof and basement walls, but the single biggest energy drain was through the home’s main walls.

By adding insulation, Elliott could improve the home’s overall EnerGuide score. In this case, the improvement would go from the home’s pre-renovation 52 points out of a possible 100, to more than 60 points — above average for houses of the same age in the area.

Air sealing

It was cost effective because of the grants and was something our house needed ... If you do it, you can get more money to do more upgrades in the house.
Kelly Elliott, London

The Elliotts hired a contractor to add insulation to the home’s attic and basement. In some spots, the contractor used spray-on foam insulation to seal gaps and prevent air moving between cracks in the home’s structure.

“Even though it costs more money to hire someone to do it, we know it’s done properly,” says Elliot. “It was cost effective because of the grants and was something our house needed ... If you do it, you can get more money to do more upgrades in the house.”

Now, she says, it’s too soon to tell what kind of cost savings the renovations have made, but the home is definitely warmer.

We know it can take a while to see the savings, but we’re sure [the bills] will be lower.
Kelly Elliott, London

“We know it can take a while to see the savings, but we’re sure [the bills] will be lower.” It’s possible the value of her house will increase thanks to the energy saving improvements, and, says Elliott, it’s good to know her family is now contributing to helping out the environment. “[Reducing our carbon footprint] is something I like to do and think about a lot.”
