A 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! 

Note that booking a pre-retrofit assessment does not automatically qualify you for rebate programs. 

There are a wide range of reasons a homeowner may want a home energy assessment, such as to obtain a baseline and comparison on how your home is performing, to provide clear next steps on what home energy efficiency actions will make the biggest impact in your home, or to participate in the Canada Greener Homes Loan.

There are two kinds of assessment, pre-retrofit and post-retrofit. The pre-retrofit assessment is conducted before renovations/upgrades are started. It is required in order to access the above loan programs. To book a post-assessment, contact your Energy Advisor or the Home Energy Help Desk at 705-536-9943. 

A home energy assessment looks at:  

  • Air leaks and drafts  
  • Gaps around doors and windows 
  • Indoor air quality  
  • Insulation levels 
  • HVAC equipment (= heating, ventilation, and air conditioning)
  • And much more!  

Before you book, please note these requirements for an energy assessment:

  • Your home cannot be under any renovations at the time of the assessment (i.e. drywall, insulation, windows, siding, cabinets, heating/cooling systems, etc.). All exterior openings must be sealed (windows, doors, fireplace dampers, crawlspace, attic hatches, etc.).
  • Your home must be in habitable condition.
  • We cannot perform assessment on multi-dwelling buildings, apartments, or office buildings. If your home has an apartment within it, or if the basement can only be accessed through a separate entrance, please call GreenUP’s Home Energy Helpdesk at 705-536-9943 to discuss eligibility.
  • Have your property tax bill and roll number ready for your advisor.
  • Be sure to clear access to all areas and mechanical systems of the home (including the attic and crawlspace)
  • If applicable, sweep your fireplace and close dampers to avoid soot from being drawn into your home. Do not have a fire within 24 hours of your assessment.
  • Homes that do not meet the above requirements upon the arrival of the Registered Energy Advisor will not be provided with an assessment and will receive only a 50% refund.

CANCELLATION POLICY: Appointments cancelled with at least 48 hours notice will receive a refund, minus a $50 cancellation fee. Appointments may be rescheduled without a fee with at least 48 hours notice. Appointments cancelled with less than 48 hours notice, or homes that do not meet the requirements for audits at time of appointment will receive a 50% refund.

If you are unsure if your home meets the eligibility we are here to help!

If you have questions, please call the GreenUP Home Energy Helpdesk at 705-536-9943.
