Homeowners Can Apply For a Home Reno Rebate for Home Renovations

June 12, 2017

There are several home reno rebate programs available to Ontario homeowners who are planning to do home renovations. All of the programs are designed to help homeowners make home renovations that will reduce energy consumption, and therefore reduce energy costs. Depending on the program, a home reno rebate is available for a variety of upgrades, retrofits, and renovations. With the right eligibility, homeowners can derive quite substantial rebates while improving overall home energy efficiency and measurably reducing seasonal energy costs.

City of Toronto: Home Energy Loan Program

This can be done by upgrading and retrofitting insulation, as well as weatherizing and sealing air leakage. Because the initial cost of these home renovations might be prohibitive for some homeowners, the City of Toronto offers low-rate loans that are repaid through a monthly financing plan associated with the specific property tax bill.

Union Gas Company: Home Reno Rebate Program

With rebates of up to $5,000, homeowners are required to do home renovations that will improve energy efficiency. With this home reno rebate, the homeowner undertakes two separate Energy Audits. One is performed before the renovations, and one is performed after. The rebates are designed to offset the total cost of the two audits and the associated energy retrofits.

Enbridge Gas: Home Energy Conservation Program

Available through Enbridge Gas, the focus of this home reno rebate is on consuming less energy from season to season. Qualifying homeowners must heat their home with natural gas; propane; oil; or wood. Here again, the incentives are offered when improvements are made specific to energy efficiency. This program allows for incentives of up to $2,100, and homeowners can undertake various home renovations that will result in lower energy bills throughout the year.
