Existing Home Evaluation

Improving your home's energy efficiency is one of the easiest and most beneficial ways to save money. The EnerGuide Home Evaluation will help you choose which improvements make the most sense for your needs. Get a personalized report to help you find the most cost-effective energy solutions depending on your home characteristics.

New Home Construction

When you’re building a new home, it’s important to consider both energy efficiency and airtightness. The EnerGuide for New Homes is a standard way to rate the energy performance of a newly constructed home. This helps builders build more efficiently, leading to better overall comfort and lower heating and cooling costs.

Blower Door Testing

Air leakage tests like this are performed in new construction and remodeling projects. This test is used to determine the air tightness of your building envelope during and after construction. It also helps to identify potential areas of improvement for additional efforts to ensure complete air tightness.

BC Step Code

BC's Energy Step Code helps builders reduce building energy use, produce healthier homes, and encourage the adoption of clean, renewable energy sources. It is a dynamic model that allows for continued improvements to the energy efficiency of housing as new products and technologies are introduced.

Energy Incentives and Rebates

The government and industry provide energy efficiency incentive programs to help residents understand where their house is losing energy and to do the upgrades that will conserve energy and save money. We will help you understand all your options and apply for the incentives that are best for you.

Energy Modeling

Energy modeling software is used both for the evaluation of existing buildings and for new building designs. Energy modeling is intended to provide a snapshot of your home's energy performance, and help you understand how much energy different components consume.

New Home Evaluation

The Energy Concept home evaluation of a new home consists of 3 stages:

1. Pre-Construction - Energy Modeling

Modeling of homes and buildings as per plans and specifications to predict energy efficiency. Includes an energy model report. This report must be submitted along with building permit application.

2. Mid-Construction - Air Leak Testing

The blower door test is a test that will determine air leakage in your home. This test alerts you to air leakage problems before installing the drywall, thereby demonstrating that your insulation is working properly and saving you money and time during construction.

3. As-Built - Compliance Report

Once the construction is complete, a final home evaluation is performed on the house to determine the Energy Rating of the house.
