EnerGuide Home Evaluations

The EnerGuide Home Evaluation Incentive Program offers a rebate to encourage homeowners to learn how their home uses energy and what improvements can be made to increase their home’s energy efficiency.

An initial evaluation (pre-evaluation) provides a detailed report to help guide you along your retrofit journey.

What is a home evaluation?

An EnerGuide home evaluation is an in-home consultation by a professional that provides a personalized report with advice for improving your home's efficiency and help save you money on your utility bills over time!

Rebate Amount

HAT Smart will rebate up to $200 direct to the energy advisor.

Clients are responsible for all taxes and any additional amount above the maximum rebate amount. If program funding has been fully exhausted, clients are responsible for the full cost of the pre-evaluation.

The Canada Greener Homes Grant requires an EnerGuide home evaluation before an eligible retrofit and then a post-retrofit evaluation once renovations are completed.

Terms and conditions

The following Terms and Conditions establish the eligibility requirements and related terms and conditions for the EnerGuide Home Evaluation Incentive Program (Program).

  2. The deadline for Energy Advisors to submit invoices is noon on January 9, 2025.

    • The pre-evaluation must be completed between January 1, 2020 and December 31, 2024, as evidenced by the date on the corresponding EnerGuide label and report.

      If your home had an EnerGuide evaluation by a previous owner, or your evaluation was conducted before January 1, 2020, you are eligible for a new pre-evaluation.

      Residential customers living in a condo are not eligible for the Program if utilities are paid for through condo fees or by the condo association since the condo building itself would then be considered a commercial enterprise.
