What information does the Scotiabank EcoLiving Home Energy Savings Calculator provide me?

The Scotiabank EcoLiving Home Energy Savings Calculator can help you save money by saving energy and, at the same time, reduce  your impact on climate change. Based on the information you provide, the EcoLiving calculator will select recommended upgrades that will help you “breakeven” on your home energy investment and will help estimate your “future savings”. The EcoLiving Calculator also gives you information on your financing options, helping you to choose the right payment method for your eco-home renovation. To help identify how your home is reducing its environmental footprint, the calculator will show your total carbon emission reduction.


Can I contact Scotiabank EcoLiving about financing my home renovation?

We encourage you to speak to your Scotiabank financial advisor. The Scotiabank EcoLiving Program does not provide users with individual financial advice.


Who can I contact for further information?
