There are two EnerGuide Evaluation Services for new homes. The pre-construction evaluation, which is completed during the design stage of the project, and the post-construction evaluation, which is completed once the house has been built.
Pre-Construction EnerGuide Evaluation (Construction Upgrade Service)
Contact a registered energy advisor to perform the pre-construciton EnerGuide evaluation when you are in the design and planning stage of a new home project.
This service is especially useful when builders are trying to build to minimum performance levels as required by BC Energy Step Code, and other green building certification requirements.
Post-Construction EnerGuide Evaluation (Basic Service)
The post-construction EnerGuide service can be completed for a new home anytime after construction is finished up until it is six months old, based on the date of occupancy by the first homeowner.
