Consider an EnerGuide Home Evaluation
An EnerGuide home evaluation with a program qualified energy advisor provides you with expert advice and a customized retrofit plan so that you can save money on your energy bills, improve your home’s health and comfort, and reduce your home’s environmental impact. Recommendations from an energy advisor can save you hours of planning time and thousands of dollars on your upgrades and energy bills by assisting you to make energy upgrade decisions that are right for your home and budget. Having an energy evaluation can also allow you to access more rebates, such as the Energy Advisor Supported Upgrades through the Home Renovation Rebate Program.
