Insulation stops energy losses

Home energy renovation - Toronto Ontario

Getting started on home renovations can be daunting at the best of times. And when you want to renovate to improve your home’s overall energy efficiency, it’s sometimes even harder to know where to start.

That’s why Toronto homeowner Ian M. knew he needed expert advice when he and his wife decided to renovate the brick home they’d lived in for four years. Because they wanted to make the 1931 home more energy efficient, they specifically wanted advice about which energy-saving renovations would make the biggest improvement.

Home energy audit

Ian booked a home energy audit to learn what kinds of energy-saving renovations were in store for his home. The Toronto Home Energy Advisor who visited his home helped pinpoint the areas that needed to be improved first — the energy audit “helped define priorities,” says Ian.

He says he was surprised by some of the recommendations the energy advisor made — for example, the advisor suggested adding wall insulation. It was an unexpected tip, because he hadn’t realized how insulation can affect a home’s overall efficiency.


In fact, of all the renovations Ian did in his Toronto home, insulation turned out to be one of the biggest improvements. “The old insulation was dangerous and seriously insufficient,” says Ian. The insulation contractors carefully removed the old attic insulation, and added new insulation to make sure the home would stay at a comfortable temperature in all extremes of Toronto weather.


To increase his Toronto home’s ability to keep the interior comfortable, Ian also installed new high-efficiency windows, which were Energy Star-rated for the Toronto climate zone.

After the window renovation, the home quickly felt a lot more comfortable, and much less drafty. And Ian has seen another improvement, too: lower heating bills. Because the home uses less fuel to stay comfortable, Ian says his energy costs have been “at least five or 10 percent less, minimum.”

More renovations and improvements

Ian is one of thousands of Canadian homeowners who received government grants and rebates for energy-saving renovations and improvements.

The grants at least cover your taxes spent on the reno work, so you get a decent amount back.

“The grants at least cover your taxes spent on the reno work, so you get a decent amount back,” he explains. While energy grant programs vary from province to province, grants and rebates are worth taking advantage of when available, says Ian, because they’re “good for us and good for the environment.”
