Full House Reno

I took on a major renovation to rent out a century home that I recently bought. I wanted to take advantage of the rebates I could get from union gas, so i found Barrier Sciences Group and they were very prompt and accommodating in their service. Tyler was a pleasure to work with and maximized my rebate. I would recommend him to anyone!

air sealing and insulating

I found out shortly after purchasing my home that there was no insulation or very little throughout the house which caused for a very cold winter. After researching this program I was able to get a lot more work done on the house and hopefully this winter will be a little more comfortable. The Rep came in and gave me a very detailed list of what can be done to get the most bang for my buck. Once I had a list of what should be done and what the rebate program would cover I was in a much better position to decide what projects to start with. I would highly recommend this program to anyone looking at saving heating costs.

Home Renovation Tax Credit

The home inspector that came out was very professional, was attentive to our needs and had information to backup all claims. He was very knowledgeable and was able to address all concerns and questions we had. We would recommend his services to any homeowner looking to have an inspector come out for the home renovation tax credit assessment.

Basement Renovation - Energy Audit

Professional and respectful technician. Reviewed current energy situation and suggested multiple energy upgrades both associated with energy rebates and other. Prompt review once renovation complete and quick turn around on paperwork. I had a nice rebate cheque much sooner than advertised. Thank you.

Energy Audit - windows, doors and insulation

I had spoken to another company before Barrier Sciences. Barrier Sciences is far more knowledgeable. I was very impressed in how thorough he was. Took his time and really did a great job in getting me a nice rebate. It took longer to get the cheque then what he expected but that is not his fault. That has to do with Union Gas. I will be calling again for renovation 2 in a couple of years.

I contacted Barrier Sciences in order to have an energy assessment done to qualify for the Union Gas Rebate Program ( I had to replace my furnace). Dave was very knowledgeable and honest in his assessment of what could to be done to qualify. (None the sketchy advice that was offered by one of the furnace company I contacted.) He was punctual and respectful, and I would recommend your service to anybody that needs the same service

Energy assessment

Company was recommended by Northern Insulation as a provider of energy assessments to allow participation in Union Gas' Home Reno Rebates program (subsidies for improving home insulation).

Company was very responsive and help explain and navigate the process.

Assessment would have been useful even if there had not been a resultant subsidy.
