New Homes Evaluations
Natural Resources Canada (NRcan) run a national program called Energuide. This rating program is a standard way to measure a home’s energy performance.
The ERS (EnerGuide Rating System) service provides independent, third-party energy efficiency advice.
Reducing the amount of energy that Canadians use in their homes is part of Canada’s climate-change solution.
The goal is to reduce the amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in order to help improve our environment and repair previous damages inflicted by our negligent use of resources and energy.
EnerGuide Home Energy Evaluations
We at Enerhome Consulting can help you with an EnerGuide Evaluation to participate in a rebate programme, meet permit requirements for improvements, or just understand how much energy you consume in your house.
Whether you are a home owner, home buyer, or a home builder, our Natural Resources Canada trained and licensed Home Energy Advisors can provide you with an EnerGuide Rating or ENERGY STAR® certification on the home and valuable information on how to make it more energy efficient.
We have NRCan Licensed Energy Advisors who will look at your home inside out and help you reduce your energy consumption. We will create a customized report to improve your house’s energy consumption.
Thermal Infrared Inspections
We can detect serious construction flaws such as air leakage, missing insulation, roof leaks, moisture infiltration, heating ventilation difficulties, and more during an infrared camera assessment. Our professionally trained and licenced energy consultants can use these cameras to seenbehind the walls of your home and determine where energy savings might be accomplished.
Blower Door Airtightness Testing
Our energy experts use a big industrial fan to completely seal one of the home’s exterior doors and ensure that it is airtight during a blower door airtightness test. The fan then depressurizes the house by sucking all of the air out, resulting in negative pressure or a vacuum. When air exits the house, it enters through any natural air leakage points such as doors, fireplaces, around windows, attic hatches, wiring, light switches, and receptacles.
We can stroll around the house and locate all of the air leakage sites using this method. We will know your ACH after the exam is completed (air changes per hour). The blower door airtightness test is the most effective method for locating air leaks in your home.
