Energy Audit

BSG came out and did a great job at doing my energy audit. However, when I received the refund cheque, it was $50 short of what the auditor had said I would receive back in rebates. I tried to get in touch, but he has not returned my calls even after sending copies of the rebate cheque.

Replaced windows, doors, furnace, hot water tank and increased insulation in attic

We had barrier sciences in to do a home energy audit before the we replaced all of our windows and doors, replace furnace and a/c, replace hot water tank and increased our attic insulation. After all of the upgrades barrier sciences returned to do another energy audit and now we are receiving a rebate for all our upgrades

home inspection for possible rebates

When our furnace needed to be replaced, it was mentioned that we would qualify for some rebates if we had a home inspection done. So clearly this was the time to have it done. The inspection and its results were very interesting. I followed several of the easy to do tips given to improve the efficiency of our home. Replacing at least some of our Victorian era home's original windows had also long been on the radar, so we chose to do several at this time. Upon re-inspection, I was however disappointed to be told that several of the pairs of windows that were closer than 6", only counted as one, when it came to rebate time. I'm sure this was NOT mentioned when given what we could get back per window. Had I known this, I would perhaps have chosen to replace different windows than I did. I have not received my rebate cheque yet at the time of writing this review, but I trust I will, and that this process will have been worth it. It also gives us direction as to where to continue to improve our home as time and budget allows.

Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry you were not made aware of the window requirements but I'm happy to hear you were able to take the tips provided and make your home more efficient. I'm sure your rebate cheque will be there soonn

Home energy audit

We wanted to have a new home heating and cooling system installed and were told rebates were available through Union Gas. Barrier Sciences were recommended to us for the energy audit. An agent responded very quickly to our request and started the assessment the next day. He made several valuable suggestions to improve energy conservation. Upon completion of the new installation of the new equipment and other improvements to home insulation he returned promptly and completed the audit. Our rebate was received within three weeks!

Energy Assessment

Required Home Energy Assessment And received amazing service and customer feedback. The assessor was very friendly, knowledgeable, and timely. Initial assessment was done and assessor provided full comprehensive list of areas for improvement along with photos of each area. Final assessment showed dramatic decrease in overall home energy usage. Amazing service would definitely recommend to anyone.

Energy Efficiency Assessment

I used Barrier Science Group for pre and post energy assessments for the home reno rebate program. The advisor was knowledgeable but I was hoping for more suggestions for improvements from the advisor and the report. The post energy assessment was rescheduled by BSG 3 times before an advisor actually showed up.

Hi There! I am sorry to hear that there were some scheduling difficulties with your follow-up assessment. We appreciate your feedback and will certainly aim to improve on this.

energy audit for home renovation and rebate

I contacted BSG for and initial energy audit prior to starting home improvements. They quickly sent an energy consultant who assessed the house and provided valuable recommendation for renovations. After I completed the work, their inspector came back for a final assessment and completed the necessary paper work for rebates. The entire process was easy with no issues. Their energy consultant communicated well with me when I had questions. I Highly recommend this company.
