    Calculate the Energy Efficiency of Your Home … and get an edge on your neighbour

    Falling victim to rising energy costs? Thanks to a new energy assessment initiative, you can now find out exactly how energy efficient your home is. For a cost of $150 ($300 total cost less $150 Ontario Government Rebate), a licensed or independent energy advisor will perform a residential energy assessment to identify how your home uses energy and where it is being wasted. You will be given a report detailing where your energy dollars are being spent and what you can do to reduce costs. Your home will also receive an energy rating label comparing it to similar homes in your area. This service is brought to you by Natural Resources Canada, Office of Energy Efficiency.

    Should you choose to make some or all of the recommended energy retrofits made by the assessor, a new energy label will be applied against your home and you could qualify for a grant of up to $5000 from the Government of Canada. If you are thinking of selling your home or starting a new renovation project, I highly encourage you to take advantage of this program.

    You benefit from reduced energy costs and when the time comes to sell, having a lower energy rating label versus your neighbours is a great selling feature for prospective buyers. With rising energy costs and environmental awareness, creating an efficient home will also help create a saleable home.
