Home energy renovation - Victoria BC

The rising cost of oil worried Victoria, BC, resident Donalda Stipkala, especially since her two-storey 1965 home used an old oil furnace to keep it warm.

She and her husband, both seniors, wanted to find a way to spend less money on heating their Victoria home.

They’d heard about government grants and rebates for energy-saving renovations, and decided to find out which improvements would result in the biggest savings for their house.

Home energy audit

The Stipkalas had a BC Home Energy Advisor conduct an energy audit on their Victoria home, as an important step in qualifying for the government grants and rebates.

During the audit, the Advisor explained where the Stipkala’s home was losing energy, and explained how home energy renovations, like installing a new air source heat pump to heat and cool their home, could save up to 78 percent of their energy costs.

The Energy Advisor gave the Stipkalas a detailed list of recommended renovations, and explained the grants and rebates they could get for each energy-saving improvement they made.

Air source heat pump

To make the biggest difference to the cost of heating their Victoria home, the Stipkalas replaced their old oil furnace and oil tank with a new Lennox Energy Star-qualified air source heat pump, with a variable speed motor.

They knew heat pumps could save energy because their Victoria neighbours had installed one, and they’d seen how much the heat pump had reduced their neighbours’ energy costs. The Stipkalas wanted to enjoy the same lower costs and increased energy savings with their own heat pump.

It’s really good heat. It’s not such a big blast — the heat’s even, both upstairs and in our basement.

“It’s really good heat,” Stipkala says. Because the new energy-efficient heat pump operates with all the registers in the house fully open, she adds, “It’s not such a big blast — the heat’s even, both upstairs and in our basement.”

Air sealing

While their Victoria home was already quite energy efficient, Stipkala says there was still room for a few more energy-saving renovations and improvements. “We also did some window sealing and renewed the door seals.”

By reducing the amount of air that can leak through tiny cracks and gaps in the home’s structure, the Stipkalas’ home maintains a comfortable indoor temperature year-round, has fewer drafts, and wastes less energy. And now that they’re free of having to worry about the rising cost of home heating oil, the Stipkalas can enjoy their Victoria home even more.
