Home energy renovation - Kelowna BC

Joanne Juhasz owns a tidy 1,800-square-foot house in Kelowna. She currently rents it out, but she’s still concerned about the split-level home’s impact on the environment, especially because she sees the home as a long-term investment.

“We’re very energy conscious and will probably live there when we retire,” she says.

Government grants

When Juhasz saw a CBC television show about the Canadian government’s ecoENERGY Retrofit-Homes initiative, and learned how the program gives grants to homeowners for making their homes more energy efficient, she became “really interested” in participating.

She was particularly glad to learn she would still qualify for the ecoENERGY program’s grants and rebates, even if she didn’t currently live in the house.

Energy audit reveals
savings potential

Juhasz booked a home energy audit to qualify for the ecoENERGY grant program, and to find out more about how the home uses, and loses, energy.

During the audit, she discovered the home was much more drafty than she’d thought, and learned that new windows could make a big difference to the home’s overall comfort and energy savings. “The auditor left a big package of information for us. He was a great guy; very informative,” Juhasz says.

Energy Star windows

Juhasz replaced the home’s drafty old single-glazed windows with 16 new Energy Star-rated high-efficiency windows. She was glad she’d hired a contractor to do the job, she says, because “it took four guys to lift the front window!” The sturdy new windows are double-paned and filled with a layer of inert gas between the panes of glass.

They provide extra insulation, protection from drafts, and soundproofing for the home. And the two new Energy Star-rated glass patio doors make the home more comfortable and more secure.

Low-flow toilet

Along with the windows, Juhasz had a new low-flow toilet installed in the home’s bathroom. By using significantly less water, the toilet helps reduce the home’s environmental impact.

Water conservation is an important part of every community’s environmental management strategy: by using less water, each home can help reduce overall energy use. And by using less water, Juhasz knows she’ll see lower utility bills, too.

The [BC home energy] auditor left a big package of information for us. He was great guy; very informative.

Energy security

After the renovations, says Juhasz, she feels secure that the house is more energy efficient and comfortable. Plus, she says, it looks better, and she likes that the improvements give it a higher resale value.

Besides the replacement windows, Senger invested in new Energy Star-rated doors, additional insulation, and air sealing to make sure no drafts could get in, and no warm air could leak out.

You get money back, and it’s good to help the environment.

The renovations have been good for the home’s tenants, too, because they get to enjoy the comfort of a draft-free home, and as Juhasz says, she hasn’t had to increase their hydro bill this year.

Even though Juhasz doesn’t currently live in this home, she says it’s still a good idea to make energy-saving renovations. “You get money back, and it’s good to help the environment.”
