Residential Energy Audits

What is an Energy Audit?

Starting Jan 1st 2023, Greener Homes and Enbridge have partnered and are offering up to $10,000 in grants for efficiency and cleantech upgrades as well as a $600 audit rebate (provided you do at least one qualifying upgrade).

An energy audit helps you pin-point exactly where your home is losing heat. During the blower door test, you can actually feel where air is leaking into your home. A very in-depth report is generated that supports your retrofit plans. 

An audit is the starting point to help you develop a plan to reduce your home’s reliance on fossil fuels. How do you determine next steps? We have worked with hundreds of homeowners and helped many of them install heat pumps, solar panels and undergo significant improvements to reduce air leakage and heat loss. 

You can book an energy audit using the form below. 

If you found your audit report confusing or are in need of a conversation on how to implement the retrofit, we offer that service. When you didn’t learn enough at the end of your audit we support you to move forward with confidence. 

We listen carefully to your goals and produce a Cleantech Roadmap that helps you understand how your home uses energy now – and plan upgrades that reduce carbon emissions and incorporate other goals and issues such as discomfort. 

Why and how are homeowners cutting carbon emissions? 

Just like driving a gasoline-powered car, home heating with natural gas produces carbon emissions that contribute to climate change. Electrification is the answer.

Air source heat pumps are the low-carbon alternative for home heating and their popularity is exploding. Everyone is familiar with heat pump technology because it’s how our fridges and air conditioners work; a cold refrigerant line moves heat in and out of a space. For home heating and cooling, think of a heat pump as a fancy air conditioner that also works in reverse. In the summer it takes heat out of a house and in the winter it brings heat in. Even when it feels cold to us outside, there is plenty of thermal energy in the air to heat a home. Heat pumps can also be used for hot water.
