We have the tools and knowledge to consult with you on efficient ways of improving the comfort, health and energy efficiency of your home. By coming in and going through your home from top to bottom, we can determine if there are ways that you can use energy more efficiently.
We examine every element of the building from the building envelope that keeps the heat in, to the mechanical systems, ventilation and air leakage. We then break down each individual element to determine areas of opportunity in energy efficiency improvements.
Through these services we can identify the following opportunities:
- Improve insulation of attic, walls, and /or foundation
- Inefficient window and doors assemblies
- Drafts and air leakage
- Potential for dampness or mold
- Alternate heating systems
When we’re done, you will be provided with a custom written report, an EnerGuide label, and a checklist of areas that could use improvement from an energy standpoint. This report can help you to make your building not only more energy efficient, but also more comfortable, healthier, and will give ideas on where to save money on energy costs.
Contact us today, and talk to us about doing an energy evaluation of your home or office.
Our Certified Energy Advisors provide energy evaluation services to identify your home energy consumption and rating. For projects that request an official EnerGuide Rating through Natural Resources Canada, we refer this service through the independent entity of Bernhardt Contracting, one of Vancouver Islands largest and best regarded energy firms. We would be proud to work with you to meet your energy efficiency and independent energy production goals.
