R-2000 Evaluation Services
One of the most respected and rigorous home performance certification programs ever developed in North America, R-2000 homes have resulted in a legacy of tremendously healthy, comfortable and efficient homes for Canadians for over 30 years.
R-2000 homes perform 50% better than minimum building code compliant homes. Supported by a rigorous 3rd party design review and 3rd party testing and verification protocol, R-2000 evaluates the performance of insulation and enclosure systems, air barrier systems, heating/cooling/ventilation and hot water delivery systems, water efficiency, and various sustainability targets (e.g. waste reduction, resource efficiency).
As a licensed R-2000 evaluator, Building Knowledge Canada analyzes home design using the Hot2000 software program. Once a home design is approved and construction begins, Building Knowledge Canada regularly visits the building site to ensure practices measure up to R-2000 requirements. After construction is complete, Building Knowledge Canada will complete the final inspection, including a blower door test to identify any air leakage, and submit the required documentation to NRCan.
