What Energy Advisors Do

A Registered Energy Advisor is licensed by Natural Resources Canada to conduct home energy audits in Canada using the EnerGuide Rating System. 

 

The EnerGuide Rating System is a nationally recognized rating standard that provides homeowners with customized information about the energy performance of their homes.

Energy Advisors evaluate home energy performance and develop custom reports with impartial upgrade recommendations to help homeowners save energy, improve comfort and reduce GHG emissions.  Energy Advisors also provide homeowners with guidance on how to access available rebates and loans to help offset the upfront costs of home energy retrofits.
