Home Energy Pre-Retrofit Assessments

An EnerGuide home energy assessment is an evaluation of the efficiency of your building. A home energy assessment helps you identify areas where you could improve energy efficiency — for example, by sealing air leaks or adding insulation. Your assessment report will identify a range of improvements you can make to increase your comfort, health, and energy savings! 

You will be asked to select a date and time, answer a series of questions (scroll all the way down), and provide payment at the time of booking. If you do not receive a confirmation email from The GreenUP Store, your appointment has not been booked. Contact the Home Energy Help Desk at 705-536-9943 if you are having difficulties

Homes with complex features will be charged an additional $75 fee on top of the prices listed below because of the additional time required by the energy advisor for the assessment. This fee will be charged for homes:

  • with over 4,000 square feet of living space
  • where two blower doors are required to perform the airtightness test (for example, because the basement is only accessible from an exterior door)

You will be contacted to make this payment if applicable following your booking. If you have questions about this fee, contact us at 705-536-9943. 

An EnerGuide assessment is the first step in applying for incentive programs such as the Home Efficiency Rebate Plus program.

Benefits of a home energy assessment include:

  • Better understanding of your home's energy performance
  • Customized advice from your Registered Energy Advisor
  • Access to up to $10,000 in grants to help retrofit your home
  • Access to up to $40,000 in interest free loans to support deeper retrofits

When applying for incentive programs, your Energy Advisor will perform two assessments: pre-retrofit and post-retrofit. The pre-retrofit assessment must be performed before renovations or upgrades have begun. Post-retrofit assessments are booked directly through your Energy Advisor. 

Ensure that you book the correct type of assessment that aligns with your postal code

Please read through the pre-assessment information letter to be sure your home is eligible before booking.
