EnerGuide™ / My EnerGuide™

EnerGuide Rating System Evaluation Services

With rising utility costs, homeowners want to know their homes are well insulated, air tight, and have efficient mechanical and electrical systems. My EnerGuide™, an NRCan program, provides homeowners with verification that their home is constructed with a high quality envelope and an efficient mechanical system. Homes undertaking an EnerGuide™ evaluation by a certified energy evaluator receive a “My EnerGuide™” rating in gigajoules (GJ’s). This energy metric enables homeowners to forecast energy costs of their new home, make wise investments in energy upgrades and future proof their home against the rising cost of energy.
