The audit will reveal areas where you can make improvements, also known as retrofits, in order to begin the process of making your home more energy-efficient. These retrofits aim to help you conserve more energy, and thus save more money over time. Before improvements can be made, an energy audit must be conducted by a Certified Energy Auditor approved by Enbridge Gas Distribution to certify that your home qualifies for the program.

STEP 3 – UPGRADES
To qualify for the HEC Program incentive, you must implement at least two of the following recommended energy upgrades in your home. The Certified Energy Auditor consulting on your home will advise you regarding areas of your home that need upgrade to achieve 15% in fuel savings and qualify for the incentive.
To ensure that your home’s energy upgrades are cost-effective, check out the following upgrades offered by Enbridge:
Attic Insulation: Ensuring that you have effective attic insulation prevents heated and cooled air from escaping through the top of your home, thus saving on energy.
Basement Wall Insulation: Proper insulation in your basement prevents loss of heat and condensation that avoids molds. This also makes your basement a useful and comfortable living or storage space.
Wall Insulation: Improving insulation in walls keeps heat inside your home during the winter, and out during the summer. This keeps your home comfortable throughout the changes in seasons and your energy bills lower.
Exposed floor: The underside of your home’s floors exposed to unheated spaces, such as a room over the garage, should be insulated as well to keep floors warm and moving around your house comfortable.
Air Sealing: Your home’s heating system works extra hard to keep your home warm and cozy when there is an air leakage. Proper sealing prevents drafts, promotes comfort and lowers your energy costs.
Window Replacements: Improved windows prevent costly drafts and condensation. These also allow in solar grains for heat in the winter, and provide solar shading to cool your home in the summer.
High-Efficiency Heating System Installation (natural gas, propane, oil or wood): A new and improved high-efficiency heating system, such as the many furnace models offered by Constant Home Comfort, improve climate control in your home, provides energy savings and promotes comfort indoors.
High-Efficiency Water Heating System Installation (natural gas, propane, oil or wood): An efficient or tankless water heater can help reduce your home’s consumption of natural gas, providing you with energy savings.
Drain Water Heat Recovery System Installation: Drain Water Heat recovery units preheat water going into your water tank with warm water coming from your home’s showers or dishwasher, letting your water tank cut back on its work. The reduced energy output of your water heater lowers energy bills.
Air Source Heat Pump (natural gas, propane, oil or wood): Air-source heat pumps draw heat from outside air during the heating season, and rejects heat outside during the summer cooling season, saving your home energy costs.
STEP 4 – POST-RETROFIT ENERGY AUDIT
After installing energy upgrades in your home, a post-retrofit energy audit enables you to compare your energy scores from before and after the upgrade. This is positive proof that your energy efficiency upgrades made a difference, and will continue to do so as you reap future savings in the form of lower energy costs, lower environmental impact and comfortable living with the ones you love.
