Building Insight Technologies Inc. accepts payment for energy audits by Visa or MasterCard.
Pre-approval is obtained from the credit card company for the entire cost of the energy audit at time of booking.
Sales tax for the energy audit is charged according to laws in the jurisdiction the house is located.
Proof of payment
Customers are sent an email confirming charges against their credit card. At the end of the visit to your home, your advisor will provide you with a payment receipt.
Appointments can be rescheduled up to 48 hours before the scheduled appointment time without penalty. To reschedule your appoint you must speak with a Building Insight customer service representative at 1-877-732-9888.

To cancel your appointment you must speak with a Building Insight customer service representative 48 hours before your scheduled appointment at 1-877-732-9888 to receive a cancellation number. The full balance is refunded.
If the advisor arrives and nobody is at home, the advisor will leave their business card at the door and include their visit time. No refund is provided to customers who do not show at their scheduled appointment time.
State of home for energy audit
If the advisor arrives to find the house is not in a state where an energy audit can be performed, no refund will be provided to the homeowner. Please read NRCan’s strict policy on the State of Home* to allow an energy audit to proceed. Renovation activities underway that have compromised the integrity of the home’s envelope immediately disqualify the home. Renovation activities that disassemble or remove heating, ventilating and air conditioning equipment immediately disqualify the home.
Emergency heating policy
In some cases, furnaces, boilers or domestic hot water equipment cannot be repaired or are deemed unsafe (red-tagged), and so must be replaced for health and safety reasons as soon as possible. Between October 15, 2011, and March 30, 2012, homeowners can purchase and install eligible equipment before obtaining a pre-retrofit evaluation only if they meet the criteria and they carefully follow NRCan’s instructions on their Emergency Heating Policy*.
Processing of refunds
Any refunds due to customers are applied as a one time credit to the same card used for booking the evaluation. An email is sent to the customer confirming the refund.
If a customer has a reason to dispute our refund policy, please contact customer service, and explain the circumstances.
Customers are not allowed to reschedule or cancel their scheduled appointment time by contacting their advisor.
