There is a new and improved Home Energy Conservation Program. Now you can get $5000 and more in incentive grants for doing energy efficiency upgrades in your home. Renovations and upgrades such as insulation, air sealing, heating equipment and more all qualify for incentives. You must do at least two recommended upgrades to your home to get the incentive grants.
All electric heated homes can receive substantial additional incentives for installing air source heat pumps. All homes can get further amounts for installing Energy Star appliances and electrically efficient heating and cooling equipment.
In order to qualify for incentives you must have a pre-renovation energy assessment and a shorter post-renovation audit to confirm your upgrades. This cost of the audits will be rebated when you complete your upgrades and get the incentive grant.
An energy audit is a comprehensive assessment of the energy performance of your home including a detailed report that recommends the upgrades that will save the most energy and qualify for incentive grants. Our NRCan Registered Energy Advisor will discuss his energy efficiency recommendations as well issues that affect comfort and a healthy home.
This program is brought to you by Enbridge, Save ON Energy, the Government of Ontario and REAL. You don’t need to be an Enbridge customer and can heat your house with oil, propane, wood, electricity or natural gas.
