Home energy renovation - Vancouver BC

Vancouver-area homeowner Marianne Russell has lived in her Port Coquitlam home since it was built, in 2003.

Since it’s a newer home, she knew that it was much more energy-efficient than many older homes. “It was a new house so the furnace was working fine,” she says. But there was still room for energy-saving renovations, says Russell, because she “wanted to do what was best for the environment.”

Home energy audit

Russell had a certified Home Energy Advisor conduct an energy audit of her home, to learn which energy-saving renovations would do the most to lessen her home’s impact on the environment.

The Advisor gave her a checklist of renovations meant to reduce the home’s greenhouse gas emissions — improvements like adding more insulation to the main walls, air sealing to prevent drafts and energy “leakage,” and upgrading the home’s heating and cooling equipment.

He also explained how Russell could get government grants and rebates for her renovations and improvements.

Air source heat pump

Russell chose to install an air source heat pump, one of the most efficient ways of heating and cooling a home in her British Columbia climate zone. Because there is always heat energy in the outdoor air, even when it feels cool outside, an air source heat pump can gather heat energy and transfer it to indoors.

In the summer, when indoor temperatures are higher, an air source heat pump can operate in reverse, removing heat from the indoors and releasing that heat outside.

Because it uses fluid-filled condensing coils to transfer the heat, it requires very little energy to operate — all it needs is a small, efficient electric motor to circulate the fluid.

Home comfort and savings

It was a new house so the furnace was working fine. But there was still room for energy-saving renovations.

The home energy report also makes recommendations for changes to improve the home’s efficiency. For example, Wiens learned that 79 percent of her home’s energy use powered the natural gas furnace.

Russell likes how her new air source heat pump gives her “total environmental control on all levels of the house.” She finds the home is evenly comfortable, regardless of what room she’s in.

Probably about a 30 percent difference [in her home energy bills].

Plus, she says, she’s noticed “probably about a 30 percent difference” in her home energy bills, which is a significant improvement. The best part of having her new air source heat pump, she says, is “knowing that over the long term I probably will get a return on the money spent.”
