Sometimes it’s hard to know where to start when you’re planning home improvements or what you can do to stretch your renovation budget.
At the City of Edmonton, we want to help take the guesswork out of it! When you sign up for an EnerGuide home evaluation, you get a better understanding of the energy performance of your home and expert advice on how to make it more energy efficient and comfortable. The evaluation also helps you prioritize which improvements to make based on their energy impact and helps you make the most out of available provincial home rebates and incentives.
Right now, when you sign up for an EnerGuide evaluation and share the resulting label on the City’s online map, you can get up to 80% off the cost of the evaluation (to a maximum of $400).
Small changes to make your home more energy efficient can make a big difference, not only to your budget and comfort, but to the environment. Homes produce 20% of Edmonton’s greenhouse gas emissions and consume nearly 20% of the energy. Our home energy use matters.
EnerGuide labels can also help you make informed choices when buying a home. Would you buy a car without knowing its fuel efficiency? Why buy a house without knowing how energy efficient it is or what could be done to improve it? When buying a home, ask for an EnerGuide label and if you want to compare between homes, visit the City’s online map where you can easily “spot the difference” between many participating EnerGuide rated homes.
Being energy efficient makes sense—for you, your budget, and for the environment. Check the video below to learn more and once you are ready to get started visit ace.edmonton.ca/energuide .
