Before you start any renovations, your advisor will collect data on all aspects of your home, (i.e. windows, doors, space and hot water heating systems, ventilation, and insulation). He will also use a blower door test to measure the air exchange in your home. He will then sit down with you to discuss your concerns and plans.
These steps are taken in order to create an energy model, using the approved NRCAN software and to tailor your “Renovation Upgrade Report” of prioritized, cost-effective upgrade recommendations This will also produce your initial EnerGuide rating.
After your renovations are complete, your advisor will return to check and verify the improvements. They will also conduct a new blower door test (99% of homes need to improve air tightness and it’s normally the cheapest action you can take).
We’ll then register you for additional incentives and rebates available to you.
We issue you a new (and improved) EnerGuide rating.
”Working with Darrell was a pleasure. In my role with SD10 I have many different sites to manage and to have an independent eye look over the billing data and do some site walk throughs helped me prioritize actions and focus our efforts.”
~ Art Olson, Manager of Operations, School District 10
“We run a pretty tight ship at Valley Cedar and have made improvements to the plant overtime to increase efficiency. Just by looking at our bills and then doing a little detective work, Darrell, found something we’d missed. It was a minor adjustment on our part but saved us thousands if it had gone unnoticed for a further 6 months…well worth the time of a basic assessment.
