Benefits of an EnerGuide Home Energy Evaluation

An EnerGuide home evaluation is the first step towards an energy-efficient home. The benefits of an energy evaluation include:

  1. Expert 3rd party consultation from a trained energy professional who will help you understand the best way to improve your comfort and lower your energy bills based on your renovation budget, without trying to sell you any specific products.
  2. A customized, detailed Energy Efficiency Action Roadmap for your home, along with an official EnerGuide home energy label and two personalized reports to help you understand your home and make the best home energy improvements – you may be able to do more than you think.
  3. Peace of mind that the information and recommendations you receive are supported by the Government of Canada’s national EnerGuide Rating System delivery and quality assurance infrastructure.
