Home Energy Assessments

A home energy assessment is a comprehensive evaluation of your home's energy use by a professional home energy analyst. It's an affordable first step to learn what upgrades your home needs to be more comfortable and energy efficient.

The assessment will reveal the places in your home where insulation is skimpy or where outside air is leaking in. The analyst will also evaluate your furnace, water heater and major home appliances to determine whether replacement or repair is recommended.

You’ll get a written report after the analyst visits your home. The report will list all the measures you can take to make your home more comfortable, safe and energy efficient.

  • Rebates of 60% of the cost - up to $100, $160 or $200 for 3 types of home energy assessment.
