Energy-saving improvements like insulation, and new high-efficiency furnaces, windows and hot water heaters, can earn homeowners thousands of dollars in grants from the BC government’s LiveSmart BC program.

But when some BC homeowners really get down to major energy-saving improvements, they discover they’ve earned even more: a bonus of as much as $1,000 and the right to call themselves a “LiveSmart Gold Champion.”

LiveSmart Champions

Energy renovations work together because all the parts contribute to the efficiency of the whole home.
Peter Moffatt, President of Building Insight Technologies

That’s because the LiveSmart BC program rewards homeowners who make a significant improvement to their home. The more improvements made, the greater the chances of qualifying for a LiveSmart Champion Gold or Silver bonus.

Gold

To earn the LiveSmart Gold bonus, homeowners must increase their home’s energy efficiency by more than 40 points on the EnerGuide for Houses scale. Homeowners who achieve LiveSmart Gold status will get $1,000 in grants if they are Interior and Northern residents, and $750 in grants if they are South Coastal residents.

Silver

To earn the LiveSmart Silver bonus, homeowners must increase their home's energy efficiency by at least 20 points on the EnerGuide for Houses scale. Homeowners who achieve LiveSmart Silver status will get $500 in grants if they are Interior and Northern residents, and $400 in grants if they are South Coastal residents.

In each case, the home needs to score a post-renovation rating of at least 50 points on the EnerGuide for Houses scale, which rates energy efficiency on a scale of 100. The most efficient homes in Canada score approximately 80 on this national scale.

Combine Renovations

To achieve LiveSmart Gold or Silver Champion status, homeowners should combine renovations that work together to help each part of their home operate more efficiently. For example, homeowners who install a high-efficiency furnace or heat pump can save even more energy by adding insulation and air sealing, because insulation and draftproofing prevents heat loss.

It makes sense to help your furnace work more efficiently by giving it a well-insulated space to heat.
Peter Moffatt, President of Building Insight Technologies

“Energy renovations work together because all the parts contribute to the efficiency of the whole home,” says Peter Moffatt, president of Building Insight Technologies, a leading energy audit company. “It makes sense to help your furnace work more efficiently by giving it a well-insulated space to heat.”

Homeowners who choose high-efficiency windows in addition to a more efficient hot water heating system, or choose a low-energy-use heat pump as well as adding insulation, can make their home more energy-efficient and improve their home’s overall energy rating score.

By combining several energy-saving renovations, homeowners can improve home energy efficiency by a substantial amount. This reduction in energy use leads to rewards, not only in the amount of grants a homeowner can receive, but in energy savings, year after year. “Homeowners who make extra energy-saving improvements will quickly see the benefits,” says Moffatt.
