EXISTING HOMESWe’re here to help you in achieving your home improvement goals, whether they include improving home comfort, reducing energy costs or increasing the resale value of your home.
If you own an existing home that you’re looking to renovate, Energy Save New West can help you get started with 5 easy steps.
Step 1 - Registration
- Sign up to take the first step and gain access to exclusive program resources including FREE personalized energy coaching services for technical support to help with planning and implementing your energy upgrade project.
Step 2 – Energy Evaluation (Pre-Upgrade)
Limited number of energy evaluations (pre-upgrade) available for only $75 (you SAVE $420).
- Schedule a pre-upgrade energy evaluation at your convenience with an Energy Advisor.
- Working with an Energy Advisor, you’ll gain a better understanding of your home’s energy use with a custom report and EnerGuide rating that helps you make home improvement decisions that fit your needs.
- Share your home’s EnerGuide label with Metro Vancouver’s rateourhome.ca and join a growing community of homeowners sharing the energy performance of their home and seeing how it compares to other similar homes in the region.
Step 3 – Home Improvements*
- From air sealing and attic insulation, to replacing windows and upgrading your heating system, there are a number of opportunities to improve home comfort and reduce energy costs.
- Hiring the right Contractor will help you turn your energy assessment into energy upgrades and savings.
- Please note that the use of a Program Registered Contractor (PRC) will be required to receive a rebate on an insulation upgrade completed and invoiced on or after April 1, 2021.

Step 4 – Energy Evaluation (Post-Upgrade)
For a limited time, up to a $600 rebate is available for energy evaluations through the Canada Greener Homes Grant program when completing pre and post retrofit EnerGuide evaluations with an Energy Advisor and at least one eligible energy retrofit.
