Energy Auditors

An energy auditor is someone who can visit your existing home or commercial building, collect data and use a variety of diagnostic tools to identify energy saving opportunities in the building. Using the information collected, and often including some sort of computer energy modelling, an energy auditor will be able to make recommendations for energy efficiency upgrades you can implement and predict the energy savings you would realize from these upgrades.

Natural Resources Canada promotes the EnerGuide rating system as the gold standard for residential energy audits, and the current federal government has committed to providing up to one million free EnerGuide home evaluations. Details of that program have yet to be announced.”
