Energy Audits

Whether you’re thinking of a renovation or just want to seal up that leaky house, consider hiring a qualified energy auditor, licensed under the EcoENERGY retrofit program to help you make informed decisions, and prioritize what improvements will give you the biggest payback. Rebates of up to $10,000 are available on upgrades to your heating and ventilation systems, insulation, air sealing, energy and water efficient appliances, doors, windows and more. According to Natural Resources Canada’s ecoENERGY program, by implementing the audit recommendations, the average homeowner can yield:

  • 30% reduction in annual energy use;
  • 4 tonnes reduction in greenhouse gas emission; and
  • $700 a year in savings on the annual heating bill
