Home energy renovation - Victoria BC

Victoria homeowner Gabriel Gat has spent so much time at the local hardware superstore, he says the employees know him by name.

That’s because he was frequently looking for insulation, windows and other energy-saving renovation materials that would make the biggest improvement possible to his 1975 Victoria-area home.

Now retired, Gat used to work for the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, so he knows a thing or two about home energy savings. He also knows what homes are worth. Making energy-saving improvements to his home was a good way of enhancing its value, he says.

After a home energy audit, during which a certified Energy Advisor conducted a detailed audit of his home’s energy use, Gat was inspired. It made sense, he said, to do as many renovations as he could from the home energy savings checklist that he got during his energy audit.


Gat installed a new high-efficiency condensing gas furnace, additional insulation in his home’s walls and attic, and new Energy-Star rated double-pane windows.

The gas furnace heats the home more effectively than the old oil furnace did, and the extra insulation helps keep the home warmer all winter. And the new windows prevent drafts and add still more insulation, which is a huge improvement, Gat says.

Rebates and incentives

Since his renovations, Gat says he has taken to advising others about the benefits of home energy improvements. When he sees other Victoria-area homeowners pondering renovations in the hardware store’s insulation aisle, he says, he tells them about the ecoENERGY grant program and offers suggestions about insulation or other improvements they might make.

So perhaps it’s no wonder the store’s staff knows him so well — given everything he knows about renovation products that help a home’s energy efficiency, he might just be in the running for unofficial employee of the month.
