Audits also determine the efficiency of your home’s heating and cooling system..

An energy audit is a comprehensive review of your dwelling, its systems and its occupants, performed by a qualified energy auditor who determines how energy is being used. The auditor provides suggestions for lifestyle changes and written recommendations for the most cost-effective energy efficiency measures that will save energy and money while improving comfort and ensuring safety.
The most important consideration when deciding on an audit is the auditor’s training, certification and experience. The Canadian Association of Energy Engineers(AEE) and NRCan certify the most highly qualified auditors. The Staff at Wilde Energy Conservation are trained and certified by both the AEE and NRCan.
