Supports at this stage of your retrofit journey include:

- Helping you find a list of rebate-eligible contractors in order to access a rebate
- Help selecting a contractor

- Review and interpretation of EnerGuide home evaluation reports
Utilizing the information provided in your registration and your Home Energy Navigator report, we work with you to assess the contractors and upgrades you are actively considering.

How it works
Do an EnerGuide Home Evaluation
Some rebate programs require an EnerGuide home evaluation to be completed before you begin your upgrades, such as the federal Canada Greener Homes Grant Initiative.
Not sure if your retrofits require an EnerGuide home evaluation or what that entails? Ask your Energy Concierge!
Find a Contractor
Visit the CleanBC Better Homes Find a Contractor Search Tool to find qualified heat pump, insulation, and window and door installers in your area.

When you are planning your retrofits, ideally you are collecting at least 2 or 3 quotes per retrofit.
Contractors will provide you with detailed quotes including installation cost estimates, suggested system details, and more.
