You may have heard that the GreenON Rebates program has recently ended. The program offered up to $7,200 in rebates for insulation, along with numerous other programs under its umbrella. Whether you are just finding out about the rebate, were planning to take advantage of it, have work scheduled with a participating contractor, or are scheduled for a home assessment with a participating contractor, you have landed on the right page.

As a participating contractor, we were able to help thousands of homeowners across Ontario get the most money back for reducing their carbon footprint, and increasing their health and comfort. Now, we hope to help you determine your next step in getting the rebates you deserve. Keep reading to find out more about what is happening with the GreenON Rebates program, what it means for you, and what alternatives there are.

*Spoiler alert: Each offers up to $5,000 in rebates.

Are there other rebate programs like the GreenON Rebates program?

Fortunately, there are two well known alternatives that have been in place before the GreenON Rebates programs. Each of them offers very similar rebates to GreenON, but there is one key difference: Each requires an energy evaluation before and after the work has been completed. There is a tremendous benefit to having this evaluation performed because it impacts the health and comfort of yourself, your family and your home.

What is an energy evaluation?

On the surface, an energy evaluation tells you how much energy your home is consuming, and how it is consuming it. You will receive several reports, including an EnerGuide Rating, which give you detailed information specific to your home. It also outlines your best plan of action to make your home more comfortable by decreasing its energy consumption. This information is valuable, and can help you pinpoint exactly where you should be making your upgrades to get the most money through rebates now – and save the most money later. The final reports you receive can be used to increase the resale value of your home because it shows potential buyers how they can expect the home to behave.

However, your home is a system. Your furnace, ventilation and insulation work together to create your home environment – and in turn, affect your health and comfort. By adding insulation, replacing a furnace, or installing new windows, you can dramatically alter the way your home performs as a system. Having an energy evaluation performed by an energy advisor helps you avoid these mishaps, and lets you continue with your retrofits with peace of mind for yourself, your family, and your home.

Energy evaluations for these programs are performed by a Registered Energy Advisor. Certification is regulated through Natural Resources Canada to make sure energy advisors are able to provide reliable and consistent results. Each program has a separate list of participating energy advisors.

You also receive $600 for the energy evaluations in both of the rebate programs.
