EnWise Building Science - Providing Home Energy Audits that get homeowners access to up to $10,000 in government grants and rebates. Learn more about your home's energy efficiency rating.

EBS will provide homeowners a Home Energy Audit and a resulting energy efficiency report that breaks down the following information in an easy to understand report containing:   

  • Your home’s energy rating, from 0-100, comparing your house to other houses in your neighborhood
  • The estimated energy consumption of your dwelling

The goal of this home energy evaluation is to educate homeowners on how to reduce emissions that are produced through their home energy inefficiency. By using energy more wisely, we can reduce emissions and contribute to cleaner air, water and a healthier environment. The average home over 20 years old can expect a reduction in greenhouse gases of over 2.5 tonnes per year when recommended upgrades are completed.
