Are you renovating or purchasing a home?
Are you looking to make your home more energy efficient?
If you answered "yes" to one of the questions above, then consider calling ACAP Cape Breton to book a Home Energy Assessment!
An Energy Assessment is a service designed to help homeowners increase the energy-efficiency and comfort of their homes. An assessment provides useful information about your home's energy performance that can help you make informed decisions when operating, renovating, or purchasing a home.
When you book an energy assessment, one of our certified Energy Advisors will come to your home to perform the initial test. This determines the current energy efficiency of your home and provides you with a rating. After this test, your Energy Advisor will provide you with recommendations that will improve your home's efficiency. You choose which renovations (such as new windows, doors, insulation) you'd like to tackle. Once the renovations are complete, your Energy Advisor will return to complete the second post-renovation test. The final report states your home's new, improved (and efficient!) rating. Depending on how your home is heated, you'll be eligible for rebates.
Is your home 100% electrically heated?
If it is, then the cost of a Home Energy Assessment is $99. This covers the cost of the first test (pre-renovations) and the second test (post-renovations). You are also eligible for rebates up to $5,000 through Efficiency Nova Scotia depending on the work you have done.

Is your home not electrically heated?
If not, then the cost of a Home Energy Assessment is $275 (+ mileage if located outside CBRM). This covers the cost of the first test (pre-renovations) and the second test (post-renovations). Unfortunately at this time there are no rebates for homes that are not electrically heated. However, you will still receive the same type of energy report as someone with an electrically heated home.
