What is a Home Energy Retrofit?

Home energy retrofits is a process to upgrade your home's energy-consuming systems. It may involve improving light fixtures, sealing windows and doors, adding insulation, and more.


The Road to a Net Zero Markham Begins With You

Cover page of the City of Markham's Municipal Energy Plan - Getting to ZeroThe City of Markham's Municipal Energy Plan - Getting to Zero provides a roadmap to achieve net zero emissions by 2050. Markham is committed to improving energy efficiency, creating renewable energy supply, and reducing emissions.

Homes and buildings are the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in Markham today, accounting for 49% of total emissions. Within the residential sector, emissions are mainly a direct result of fuel consumption for space and water heating.

Home energy retrofits create more sustainable homes through improvements to the building shell and energy system. These upgrades can lower your heating and energy bills, improve home comfort and reduce emissions.


How it Works

Energy advisor examines window

The EnerGuide home evaluation uses a nationally recognized rating system to assess the energy performance of your home.

A certified energy advisor will examine your home's insulation, heating and cooling systems and overall energy use to identify sources of heat loss and other energy savings. After your audit, you will receive a set of recommended changes that have the best energy retrofit impact.

A number of grants and financing options are available to help cover the costs of upgrades.

Homeowners will likely need to be patient because wait times may seem long. However, it is best to get your application in to start the process.

For more information on rebates and incentives, please see our FAQs.
