HOW IT WORKS
1 SHARE BASIC HOUSEHOLD INFO
Enter answers to questions ranging from where you live to the age of your home to the number of ENERGY STAR certified appliances you own.
2 SEE WHAT YOU COULD SAVE
Your list of recommended retrofits, estimated costs, savings and payback time is tailored to your climate, house style and more. Suggested upgrades—from attic insulation to heating equipment—are listed from best to worst investment.
3 TAKE ACTION
Now that you know your best investments, book a home energy audit to get a detailed plan for executing energy-saving home improvements, and talk to a Scotiabank representative about financing options.
Developed in partnership with Scotiabank EcoLiving and the Sustainable Housing Foundation, the tool offers sound financial advice and is good for the environment. The new online tool arms homeowners with a tailored list of energy and water saving recommendations based on the estimated costs for upgrade, the annual savings and the break-even period in years when the improvement pays for itself.
“It used to be cost-prohibitive to make environmental upgrades but water and gas prices are getting so high that these retrofits are now smart investments,” says Craig Backman, Former Chair of the Sustainable Housing Foundation.
