Things to consider...



Properly insulated homes  are considered energy efficient because less energy is required to maintain a comfortable temperature.  A reduction in energy consumption results in less greenhouse gases being released into the environment.



In most homes, about 60% of energy costs are tied up in heating and cooling. Proper insulation will help to keep the heat indoors.


During the winter months, as much as 3% of the energy your furnace uses can be saved by lowering your thermostat by 1 degree.

Home Energy Assessment Program

Home Energy Assessment Program


Are you a homeowner interested in saving money and energy?

Call today to book a home energy assessment and learn how your home can benefit from a retrofit!



On April 1, 2012 Efficiency Nova Scotia Corporation launched the Home Energy Assessment program.  As one of the service providers, the Clean Nova Scotia Foundation delivers this program on behalf of Efficiency Nova Scotia Corporation.  This program provides homeowners with an individualized home energy assessment, including an EnerGuide Rating and recommendations on how to make your home more energy efficient.  To view the EnerGuide Rating system, please visit Natural Resources Canada.


Clients are eligible for provincial rebates on upgrades, such as attic and wall insulation, air sealing, and new energy efficient windows and doors. The assessment costs $200, which includes two personalized home visits: the first to assess the home and the second to follow up and verify all improvements.  Also included in the assessment cost are direct install products, including compact fluorescent lamps, electric hot water tank wraps, and pipe wraps, at no additional charge.  These products will be installed at a subsequent home visit to be scheduled at the homeowner’s convenience.


Homeowners have up to 12 months to complete upgrades and schedule their follow-up visit.  A label with an updated EnerGuide Rating and a rebate cheque (if applicable) will be mailed out directly. Learn more on how to proceed and sign up for the Home Energy Assessment program.


Those who participated in the former federal ecoEnergy or provincial programs are still eligible to participate in the current Home Energy Assessment program. Qualifying homeowners can receive rebates of up to $3,000 for electrically heated homes and $1,500 for non-electrically heated homes.


For those who have already participated in the provincial home energy program prior to April 1, 2012 and have not had a follow-up visit, additional information regarding the program changes can be viewed here.
