Hiring a Certified Energy Advisor
If you're thinking about renovating your home, you should consider hiring a certified energy advisor to perform an ecoENERGY evaluation. A certified energy advisor is a trained and certified professional, often with a background in engineering, architecture or home inspection. An advisor can suggest improvements and help plan retrofits, as well as apply for grants on your behalf once you have completed retrofits and your home has been re-assessed.
Before hiring an energy advisor, prepare a list of aspects of your home that you value. Traditionally constructed buildings feature a lot of character defining elements, and, in accordance with the
Standards and Guidelines for the Conservation of Historic Places in Canada, those elements should remain untouched.
