An Energy Advisor is trained to follow the NRCan protocol of performing an Energy Evaluation in residential homes up to three storeys high and built under the Part 9 building code.

An Energy Evaluation is a measurement of efficiency of a home. This involves measuring and taking photos of the house, including how much insulation is in the attic and walls, as well as how efficient the heating/cooling system is. It can also include renewable energy.

The house is also checked for its air tightness. The Energy Advisor uses a Blower Door to depressurize the air in the house and measure the air changes per hour at specific pressures. This test also allows the Advisor to show the homeowner where all the main drafts are located.

The Energy Advisor acts as an independent self-employed contractor.
