Energy costs are high and continue to rise. One way of making electricity and heat more affordable is by reducing consumption. We can assess your home, business or farm's energy consumption/loss, and provide recommendations for improvement and provide an EnerGuide rating for your home. 

ALL BUILDING UPGRADES MADE TO CONSERVE ENERGY WILL RESULT IN DIRECT SAVINGS IN REDUCED ELECTRICITY AND HEATING COSTS.


Basic Service Energy Efficiency Consultation, Design:

Initial consultation includes a site or blueprint assessment, Hot2000 modelling, which is a simulation and design tool for low-rise residential building, and a Blower Door Test (for the on site evaluation only), which is used to measure the airtightness of buildings by identifying air leaks. The more airtight your building is, the less heat is lost and more energy efficient it will be! We will then provide any additional recommendations for improvement.

This is a necessary step in order to plan renovations or any mechanical/appliance/solar upgrades to your home in order to maximize energy savings.

Post Construction Energy Efficiency Reevaluation & EnerGuide Label

After construction or renovation, we will do another site assessment which includes a blower door test. This will provide information which will allow us to determine if improvements were made by the renovation or create a baseline after a new construction has been completed. Additional recommendations for improvement will be made. 

Results will be combined with the information received through the initial modelling of your home.

Completion of the Post Construction Assessment results in an EnerGuide labelling. EnerGuide labelling will be required to access grants or rebates, as well as provide clear & comparable identification of being an EnerGuide energy efficiency home. This could give you an advantage when reselling your home.
