GNI's MyEnergyXpert is Helping Homeowners Reduce Utility Bills

November 26, 2017

GNI’s MyEnergyXpert allows homeowners (and businesses) to accurately analyze the energy efficiency of their premises. The big picture with GNI’s MyEnergyXpert is about reducing energy usage and therefore reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Homeowners essentially perform an online “energy audit” using customized software that’s provided by GNI’s MyEnergyXpert.

It’s simple and easy - homeowners upload relevant data to the online software; an accurate energy consumption analysis is provided; and recommendations are suggested for change. The objective is to provide viable energy retrofits to improve overall energy efficiency, reduce energy consumption, and thus provide utility savings from season to season right around the year.

Enjoy the Simplicity of GNI’s MyEnergyXpert. The online platform is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

1.  Users choose an application version

Computer, tablet, or mobile, users choose an application version to suit

2.  Answering some relevant questions

Answering questions helps to create a profile and identify improvements

3.  Recommendations for improvement 

Viable home improvement opportunities are automatically recommended

With GNI’s MyEnergyXpert, the online experience is user friendly – the process can be completed in 15-30 minutes. There’s usually no need to provide utility bills or usage history, and the profile can be updated going forward. In short, MyEnergyXpert aims its focus on energy efficiency for the long-term - it’s about reducing energy cost, improving occupant comfort, diminishing impacts on the environment, and reducing the carbon footprint of homeowners and businesses alike.

MyEnergyXpert suggests repairs and retrofits to improve energy efficiency

In terms of an action plan, MyEnergyXpert recommends repairs and retrofits that will deliver results. Specific upgrades and improvements are suggested to boost energy performance and therefore boost energy efficiency. In every instance, the annual energy savings, particularly with winter heating and summer cooling, actually serve to “pay down” the cost of repairs and retrofits.

Wall Insulation Retrofit

Exterior wall insulation can be retrofitted easily with a “drill and fill” process that measurably enhances R-Values, improves seasonal home comfort, and reduces energy costs.

Energy Window Films

Window films block out solar heat - they noticeably reduce “solar heat gain”, thus keeping room temperatures more consistent, and reducing the overall cost of air conditioning.

Effective Air Sealing

Air sealing and draft proofing contribute immensely to energy efficiency. An airtight “building envelope” will diminish air leakage, and improve energy efficiency throughout.

Attic Insulation

Attics are the main source of heat loss in a “building envelope”. Tightly sealed, with high quality insulation, an energy efficient attic provides significant annual energy savings.

Indoor Ventilation

Well-balanced ventilation allows for energy efficiency and home comfort at one time. With the right upgrades, proper indoor ventilation contributes greatly to energy efficiency.

Upgrades, improvements and retrofits all make a difference

Upgrades and improvements to energy efficiency can take on many forms. From ENERGY STAR® appliances to high performance insulation retrofits, the savings on energy can be substantial. The fact is, even smaller scale efforts can make a difference – like installing LED lights; insulating hot water pipes, and changing over to a programmable thermostat.
