Book an EnerGuide Home Energy Evaluation

Windfall Home Energy is a Natural Resources Canada (NRCAN) licensed service provider with NRCAN Registered Energy Advisors conducting your home energy evaluation.

The Enbridge Home Efficiency Rebate Plus (HER+) program has been closed as of February 5, 2024, due to a Federal lapse of funding. Because of this, we are unable to enter new applicants for participation in the HER+ or Greener Homes Grant programs.

Windfall continues to schedule pre-retrofit EnerGuide evaluations for enrollment in the Canada Greener Homes Loan program alongside municipal loans and incentives. Additionally, post-retrofit evaluations to claim rebates for completed work also continue.

The Government of Canada intends to establish a next phase in their Canada Greener Homes Initiative. More information can be found in their news release. If you would like to express your concern in the closure of home energy incentives, consider sending a letter to the Federal government.

What to Expect During a Home Energy Evaluation

The energy evaluation is conducted on-site at your home. The initial (pre-upgrade) evaluation takes approximately 2–3 hours. A second (post-upgrade) evaluation takes up to 1 hour.

The energy advisor will conduct a basement-to-attic assessment of your home's insulation, heating, cooling, and other energy use.

A blower door test will be conducted to test for air leaks, which can cause wasted energy, uncomfortable drafts and poor air quality.

Your home will be given an energy rating using the Natural Resources Canada rating system — the lower the rating the better.

You will receive a full report outlining recommendations for improvements to help reduce your energy bills and increase your home's comfort.
