What’s a Home Assessment?
Although a home assessment is no longer required to receive an Elizabethtown Gas energySMART rebate, it can provide useful energy knowledge about your home that can lead to additional energy savings.
A home assessment involves a Building Performance Institute (BPI) certified technician performing tests that will help assess the conditions of your home, providing you with a thorough look at your home's safety and how efficiently your home uses energy and what, if any, is wasted. A home assessment can take between two and three hours and may include a health and safety check on carbon monoxide levels, moisture, and indoor air quality, overall comfort level such as cold or hot spots, air sealing opportunities, insulation levels, heating system efficiency, cooling system efficiency, hot water system efficiency and a review of your major appliances and lighting.
Upon completing the assessment, the certified technician will provide you with a detailed report listing home efficiency improvements that can be made at various investment levels.
