EnerGuide for Houses provides energy evaluations of houses, whether they are already built or only exist as plans. Its purpose is to improve the energy efficiency and reduce the environmental impact of homes in Canada by identifying opportunities for energy savings.The program determines the amount of heat loss from each component of the house and makes recommendations to dwelling owners or home-builders on how to improve energy efficiency.
The EnerGuide for Houses evaluation is conducted by a licensed energy advisor who collects data and performs an onsite evaluation of the house and its mechanical and heating systems, and performs a fan depressurization test ("blower door test") to determine the air-tightness of the building envelope.
