Home energy audit
There are many reasons to have a home energy audit ...
Get government grants
An energy assessment conducted by a government-certified energy advisor is the first step towards getting federal ecoENERGY grants and provincial rebates.
Your advisor will help you determine which grants you might qualify for, and help you plan your work to maximize the grant amount you will get. They can also inform you about additional incentive programs and rebates that may be available from your provincial government or utility company.
An energy assessment is the fastest, best way to get detailed information and expert advice about your home’s energy needs. By getting expert advice, you’ll feel sure you’re making a sound decision.
All you need to do is book an appointment and let your energy advisor do the rest. They’ll bring their own equipment, conduct a thorough evaluation of your home, and help you discover the many energy-saving options you have.
Get expert advice
When you do energy renovations, professional advisors are ready to guide you through the whole process, from initial assessment to receiving your rebate grant.
Your energy advisor’s expertise comes from years of experience and specialized training. They are certified and licenced by the federal government to provide you with the best possible information about your home.
Discover choices and options
There are numerous possibilities when it comes to energy renovations.
You could do dozens, or just choose a few key ones that make sense right now. Or you could do a combination of different renovations, according to your needs and energy savings goals. Your advisor will help you find the combination that is best for you.
Benefit from specialized scientific tests
Detailed measurements are crucial to determining how your home uses — and loses — energy.
Without these measurements, it’s hard to know if the energy renovations you’re investing in are the right ones to choose. Your energy advisor uses specialized equipment and knowledge to take these measurements during your energy assessment.
Learn house-as-a-system approach
When your energy advisor conducts an assessment, they’ll assess how each component of your house — its structure and equipment — contributes to the home’s energy efficiency as a whole.
From this information, you’ll better understand how each energy renovation you make can enhance the others.
Document your improvements
Only houses enrolled in the ecoENERGY Retrofit program can receive official EnerGuide labels.
EnerGuide labels are vital pieces of information that rate your home’s energy efficiency, on a scale of 0 to 100. By documenting your home’s energy rating, you will be able to prove that you’ve made valuable improvements to your home. This can increase your home’s value when it’s time to sell.
Co-ordinate efforts for most savings
Let’s face it, if you’re going to renovate, it makes sense to get it over with at once.
By co-ordinating your energy improvements, and conducting additional renovations that enhance the effect of your primary ones, you can maximize your home’s energy savings potential with a minimum of fuss.
