As the Alberta Building Code and the National Energy Code has updated, so have we.
Always wanting to provide our clients with the best options for design,
i4HomeDesign has an "in house" Energy Advisor with Natural Resources Canada.
This allows us to take care of all your energy needs.

-------------


As one of the only Energy Advisors north of Edmonton,
this has been a valuable asset for many of our builders and clients.

-------------

There are three different paths to satisfy energy codes.

The Prescriptive Path is your basic method and even though many still choose to use a professional,
can be achieved without the assistance of an Energy Advisor.

The Trade Off Path is very similar to the Prescriptive Path and allows for some "tradeoffs" utilizing
specific calculations to meet requirements associated with the Prescriptive Path.

The Performance Path is more complicated and in some municipalities,
requires the assistance of an NRCAN Energy Advisor.

If you choose to go the Performance path,
it allows both greater flexibility and potential savings.
