How To Save On Your Energy Bill: Insulation That Pays For Itself
December 18, 2019
Although insulation upgrades are widely acknowledged as an effective way to save on your monthly energy bill, many homeowners are unaware just how effective they actually are. In many cases, depending on the age of the home and current insulation levels, energy efficiency upgrades such as insulation and air sealing are capable of paying themselves off through energy bill savings and rebates in just a few years. Also, professionally installed insulation brings a number of other benefits, such as a noticeable improvement to home comfort and a more uniform temperature on every floor.
Here at GNI, we’re proud that our professional insulation consultants are also rebate experts as well. They are trained, experienced, and effective at helping homeowners understand energy efficiency rebates. They are also able to help you choose the best upgrades for your home, making it easy for you to upgrade according to cost-effectiveness. That way, you can see the biggest improvement to your energy bill and your level of home comfort - for the lowest possible cost.
The best place to start when looking at how to save on home upgrades is to have a professional assess your home. GNI offers free in-home assessments and estimates to help homeowners figure out their renovation options, taking the hassle out of planning improvements and providing an excellent starting point for next steps. If you would like to schedule a time for a free in-home assessment of your very own, our Customer Experience Team will be happy to help; simply call us toll free at 1-800-265-1914, or stop by our website and live chat with us at www.gni.ca/contact.
Rebates Make Insulation Upgrades Even More Affordable
Rebates are fantastic. Not only do they make home upgrades more affordable, but they help homeowners make even more upgrades for the same or even lesser cost than if they had upgraded without. With an in-depth energy audit from a registered energy advisor, homeowners are even better equipped to improve their home comfort and energy bill costs in a cost-effective manner.
This is due to the information that is provided in an energy audit, which allows homeowners to see their home’s overall energy performance and the areas where it could be most cost-effectively improved. Additionally, an energy audit is part of the qualification process for the Home Efficiency Rebate program - the most notable program currently available to Ontario homeowners.
With up to $5,000 of available rebates, the Home Efficiency Rebate program offers an excellent solution to homeowners who are looking to improve their energy efficiency, and see a return on their investments in a shorter amount of time. In many cases, and depending on a few factors such as the age of the home, the amount of the rebates that are received, and the home’s current level of air sealing / insulation, energy efficiency upgrades are able to pay themselves off in only a few years time.
If you would like precise knowledge of how to save on your energy bill, increase your home comfort, and target cost-effectiveness, an energy audit is a fantastic place to start. GNI is able to help setup and arrange an energy audit for you, but we recommend that you schedule it to happen before any upgrades have started (since this will help you qualify for the Home Efficiency Rebate program).
