Home Energy Audit Toronto

If you’re living in Toronto and are interested in increasing your home’s level of energy efficiency, a whole home energy audit is the best place to start. Not only will a home energy audit in Toronto increase the energy efficiency, it will provide you with information that is integral to a more comfortable and affordable home! The best part is you may even find you’re eligible for rebates.

How does a home energy audit in Toronto get me rebates?

If you live in Toronto and heat your home with natural gas, and you live in a detached, semi detached, or row townhouse, it’s likely that you can qualify for rebates through the Home Efficiency Rebate run by Enbridge Gas Inc. The Home Efficiency Rebate offers up to $5,000 for energy upgrades to your home!

Home energy audits in Toronto

The first qualification step in the Home Efficiency Rebate is an energy audit. You must have an energy audit completed on your home before any renovations have begun, as well as a final energy audit after all of the renovations have been completed. If you’ve already begun renovations and are wondering if you qualify, simply call our office at 1-866-333-3920 so our office staff can determine if you’re eligible for the program.

The Home Efficiency Rebate offers up to $5,000 in energy upgrades. The upgrades that qualify for rebates are:

    Attic Insulation

    Exterior Wall Insulation

    Basement or Crawl Space Insulation

    Windows and Doors


    Water Heaters

    Air Sealing

Barrier Sciences Group works directly with Enbridge Gas Inc. to submit all the necessary paperwork for qualification! So all you have to do is contact us to schedule your energy audit, complete the renovations, and relax!

Are Toronto energy audits effective?

A whole home energy audit in Toronto is one of the most effective tests for homeowners to determine their home’s level of energy efficiency. However, an energy audit isn’t only effective for those who are concerned with the environment!

An energy audit has many benefits, including adding value to your home if it’s currently on the market. An energy audit will look at insulation levels, heating/cooling system efficiencies, air leakage, and greenhouse gas emissions; all things that prospective buyers in Toronto are interested in when it comes to purchasing a home.

Lastly, an energy audit will provide you with important information pertaining to your home’s energy rating, heat loss, and energy usage. After your energy audit has been completed, your Registered Energy Advisor will provide you with an EnerGuide label. You may have seen a similar label on appliances, however this label is strictly for homes. The EnerGuide label outlines your home’s rating, energy usage, and greenhouse gas emissions. Your EnerGuide rating will showcase how your home compares to that of a newly built house, built to today’s standards.

Along with your EnerGuide label and rating, you’ll receive a list of recommended upgrades specific to your home. The list of recommended upgrades will also show you how much more efficient your home would be if you were to complete the specific upgrades. It’s a great way to determine if the renovations you want to complete will be worth the effort!
