Our Feds have implemented an Eco Energy program designed to assits home owners in upgrading old furnaces, DWH, insulation windows etc.
We do an evaluation of the home’s equipment, windows insulation etc and conduct a Blower Door test to determine the air tightness of a home.
We prepare a report to the home owner making suggestions for improvements and upgrades.
The home owner has 18 months to make any upgrades they wish and a second inspection is conducted when they are done.
The feds and pay the home owners a grant based on what they do (up to $5,000) and our province matches the federal grant.
The evaluators are required to take a 24 hour training workshop, do 7 test evaluations then write an exam (on line). Then you get certified to do the evaluations.
Cost to the home owner is approx $300 for first test and $150. for second test. Province subsidizes half of the first test.
