EnerGuide Home Energy Evaluations
A Healthy, Energy Efficient Home
An EnerGuide Home Evaluation is a great way to identify the best ways to improve your home energy efficiency. The best time to have an evaluation is when you are planning some home renovations since that is often when it is easy add insulation or make other upgrades that make your home more comfortable, use less energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
An evaluation can help you:
- Lower your energy bills;
- Set priorities for home renovations; and,
- Fix moisture problems, drafts, etc.
Best of all? Home energy evaluations contribute to a reduction in green house gas emissions and help us meet our local targets. And they benefit the local economy through the businesses that do the work and sell the materials. See the impact made by home energy evaluations!

How It Works
A typical home energy evaluation takes 2-3 hours. It includes an assessment of your home’s insulation, heating system, air leakage and much more by a Certified Energy Advisor. The Advisor will use this information to model the energy use of your home and create a personalized report . Your report will help you understand how your home uses energy, and how you can make smart home improvements. You will also receive an EnerGuide rating which allows you to compare the energy efficiency of your home to other houses throughout Canada.
The EnerGuide home evaluation and rating system was designed by Natural Resources Canada to help home and property owners make their homes more energy-efficient and reduce the burden of high energy costs. REEP provide EnerGuide home evaluations throughout the Waterloo Region under an agreement with Green Communities Canada.
