Who We Are
Capture Energy specializes in Home Energy Efficiency Evaluations focusing on the BC Energy Step Code, City of Vancouver Green Building Policy for Rezoning, and Vancouver Building Bylaws for Energy Efficiency. Working in Part 9 of the BC Building Code for MURB’s Townhomes and both New Construction and Renovation of Single Family Homes.
We work closely with architects, designers, builders, tradespeople and homeowners to conceptualize, design and test homes to maximize energy efficiency.
We perform ventilation assessments and testing to ensure ventilation meets BC Building Code standards. To date, we have completed over 3,000 residential home energy evaluations.
The BC Energy Step Code (The Step Code) Specialists
As adopted by Richmond, City of North Vancouver, District of North Vancouver, New Westminster, West Vancouver, Langley, and Surrey.
New designs, materials and techniques are constantly being introduced, creating new ways to meet the Step Code requirements. Contact us to guide you through the Step Code requirements for each municipality.
Net Zero Homes
Net Zero homes produce as much clean energy as they consume.
They are up to 80% more energy efficient than typical new homes and use renewable energy systems to produce the remaining energy they need. Every part of the house works together to provide consistent temperatures throughout, prevent drafts, and filter indoor air to reduce dust and allergens.
Clean BC Home Evaluation Rebate
Home energy efficiency evaluations are necessary to apply for the CleanBC Pre-Upgrade Energuide Rebate. Learn more about the CleanBC Pre-Upgrade Energuide rebate.
We are NRCan Certified for existing homes, new builds and MURBS.
An EnerGuide rating shows a standard measure of your home’s energy performance. It shows you (and future buyers) exactly how energy efficient your home is.
The rating is calculated based on standard operation assumptions so that you can compare the energy performance of one house against another.
