Why should you get an energy score?
An energy score is an energy rating that is provided after a home energy audit is completed. The higher the score, the more energy efficient your home is. When you complete an energy audit and receive an evaluation of your home’s current energy use, you’ll be given an energy score, using the Natural Resources Canada's EnerGuide Rating System. An EnerGuide rating is a standard measure of your home’s energy performance. Your home’s energy efficiency level will be rated on a scale of 0 to 100. A rating of 0 represents a home with major air leakage, no insulation and extremely high energy consumption. A rating of 100 represents a house that is airtight, well insulated, sufficiently ventilated and incorporates highest efficiency equipment. The higher your score the better.
