Scheduling a home energy assessment with us is simple!

An energy-efficient home is comfortable, healthy, environmentally friendly and cost-effective. An EnerGuide home evaluation can help you understand how your home uses energy now and identify retrofits to help improve energy efficiency. It is also the first step in accessing Enbridge Home Efficiency Rebate Plus and the Canada Greener Homes Initiative programs.

An energy advisor will assess your home from basement to attic. This will give you an EnerGuide rating for your home and an energy efficiency report to help you make decisions about possible upgrades.

You can also reach out to us by Email or by Phone at 1 866-643-2077

What do you need to know about energy efficiency assessments under Enbridge and Natural Resources Canada programs?

If you qualify for the Enbridge Home Efficiency Rebate Plus or the Canada Greener Homes Initiative programs you will be reimbursed for the cost of pre- and post-renovation assessments, up to a maximum of $600. As part of the initiative, both evaluations are required in order to receive reimbursement. You will need to complete at least one of the renovations that are both eligible and recommended by your energy advisor in their report to be reimbursed.

To facilitate the evaluation process, it is recommended that you chose ecoPlus Services (Ottawa Ontario-East) as your service organization during your application to the Enbridge Home Efficiency Rebate Plus Program and/or Canada Greener Homes Grant Program. That being said, it is not mandatory to be register to the above programs to receive an energy evaluation.

Here’s what you need to know about energy evaluation:

  1. The state of your home should comply with the conditions at this link Prepare your home for the home evaluation.
  2. On the day of the assessment, the EEA will come to your home. She/he will need access to your entire house, including the attic, the crawl space (if applicable), and the mechanical room. An assessment usually takes between one and two hours. You do not need to be with the advisor throughout the assessment, but you must be able to answer his questions or give him access to the different rooms of the house. The EEA will take many measurements and photos and will carry out a blower door test.
  3. In the days following the assessment, the EEA will use the measurements collected in your home to model your energy consumption and produce various reports.
  4. The EEA will provide you with a report of the energy assessment of your home and will file the relevant documents in your Canada Greener Homes portal file.
  5. If it is a pre-work evaluation, you can then begin your work to improve the energy efficiency of your home.
  6. If it is a post-work evaluation, you can make your claim on the Canada Greener Homes portal.

 EEA’s are professionals who will make recommendations to improve the energy efficiency of your home. They do not have the right to recommend specific products or companies to you. They are not responsible for the quality or conformity of the work as well as their eligibility for grants.
