At Greensaver, we have over a decade of experience in delivering EnerGuide Home Energy Evaluations. We are one of the largest Service Providers and employers of EnerGuide Certified Energy Advisors in Canada. Our Energy Advisors are the cornerstone of our organization as they are working closely with you to provide you customized and trusted advice in making your home more energy efficient.
To book your Energuide Energy Evaluation, please submit the form below:
Greensaver utilizes the latest version of the EnerGuide Rating System with the consumption based rating measured in gigajoules per year. After the Energy Advisor performs the Energuide Rating System assessment, the home is modelled using HOT2000 version 11.11 software.
Our Software takes into account the efficiency of the mechanical equipment and calculates the heat loss through the building envelope depending on the level of insulation of the home and the air leakage rate determined through the blower door test.
During your Home Energy Evaluation, our EnerGuide Certified Energy Advisor will examine your home to determine its energy efficiency and diagnose areas of improvements that will benefit your utility bills and your overall home comfort.
An Energy Advisor is an energy professional who is qualified to conduct an energy evaluation on a home. Our Energy Advisors are registered with Natural Resources Canada to conduct government-approved EnerGuide assessments.
Our skilled energy advisors can complete an EnerGuide-certified evaluation of your home to assess its energy efficiency. This evaluation will include a thorough, room-by-room examination of the property. It may consist of a blower-door test to determine the building’s airtightness and locate air leakage.
Once the evaluation is complete, our experts can provide you with an EnerGuide rating. This government-approved rating tells you how energy efficient your home is and is recognized across the country. An EnerGuide rating is a real selling point for prospective buyers.
Our advisors will also provide you with a comprehensive EnerGuide home energy report.
What will the home energy report include?
In addition to the evaluation and rating, our advisors can provide you with an EnerGuide home energy report to help you make decisions about retrofits and upgrades that are needed to improve your rating. This personalized report will show you where to improve your energy efficiency and which upgrades are most important to improve your home’s energy performance.
