An energy advisor is an individual who conducts EnerGuide home evaluations on behalf of service organizations licenced by Natural Resources Canada. Energy advisors provide third party expert advice to homeowners looking to improve energy efficiency of their homes, and can also work with builders who wish to use the EnerGuide Rating System (ERS) in the planning and design stages of their new constructions. Energy advisors help ensure homes labelled under NRCan’s energy efficiency housing initiatives meet the requirements of the respective standards.
