Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

The EnerGuide Rating System, developed by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), is a standardized method for evaluating and measuring the energy efficiency of various consumer items, including homes, light-duty vehicles, and specific energy-using products in Canada.

The EnerGuide rating for a home is determined by Monolith Housing Solutions through an evaluation of factors such as insulation, heating/cooling systems, and air leakage.

The energy efficiency report offers insights into a home’s energy usage, identifies retrofit opportunities, and serves as a guide for making improvements.

Yes, enhancing the energy efficiency of a home based on the EnerGuide rating can potentially increase its value and appeal to potential buyers.

The EnerGuide rating provides an estimate of a home’s net energy consumption, factoring in insulation, heating/cooling systems, and air leakage. However, actual utility bills may vary due to household fluctuations and weather patterns.

The BC Energy Step Code aims to enhance energy efficiency in new construction buildings and promote sustainable building practices.

The BC Energy Step Code sets performance levels for energy efficiency, allowing builders to choose a step aligned with their project’s needs and desired energy performance.

Yes, builders may be eligible for rebates or incentives from government programs and utilities to offset the costs of meeting BC Energy Step Code requirements.

Yes, the BC Energy Step Code requirements are tailored to specific building types and climate zones to ensure effective energy efficiency measures.

The design of a Net Zero Home differs significantly, incorporating optimal insulation, airtight building envelopes, high-performance windows, efficient mechanical systems, and renewable energy integration to minimize energy consumption and maximize clean energy generation.

Achieving Net Zero energy efficiency involves optimizing insulation, ensuring airtight building envelopes, using high-performance windows and doors, implementing energy-efficient HVAC systems, employing advanced ventilation strategies, and integrating renewable energy systems.

Yes, Net Zero design principles can be applied to existing homes through renovations, involving energy-efficient upgrades like improved insulation, upgraded windows and doors, optimized HVAC systems, and integration of renewable energy sources for achieving Net Zero or Net Zero Ready performance. Monolith Housing Solutions can provide expertise in assessing the feasibility of retrofitting existing homes and recommend cost-effective strategies for achieving Net Zero energy performance.
