Who Can Apply for the Home Efficiency Rebate?
Professional insulation improvements can reduce your yearly utility bills by up to 20%
Any homeowner who lives within either the Union Gas or the Enbridge Gas service area is eligible to apply for a rebate, and begin saving money and energy.
To schedule a time for your pre-renovation energy audit, and to begin taking the first steps towards making your home energy efficiency improvements more affordable, contact an approved Service Organization such as our friends at Barrier Sciences Group, and take advantage of their free phone consultation service.
Which Insulation Upgrades are Qualified for the Home Efficiency Rebate?
As a homeowner, it may seem difficult to determine which rebates are the most cost-effective for you to renovate or retrofit towards. However, with the pre-reno energy audit that is part of the Home Efficiency Rebate process, all of the possible improvements in your home are clearly laid out in front of you. It also includes detailed information regarding which areas of your home are able to be most affordably improved. With this information, you can to choose the home improvement measures that will not only qualify you for the biggest rebate, but will also save you the most energy and improve your home by the greatest amount per dollar invested.
Non-Insulation Rebates and Bonus Rebates are also Available
There are a number of rebates available to homeowners who improve the energy efficiency of their home outside of making insulation improvements, and bonus rebates for homeowners who improve multiple areas of their home all at once. Your registered energy advisor and the information provided in your energy audit will help you determine which rebates are the best for you to renovate towards.
Additionally, the Home Efficiency Rebate initiative will provide up to $550 to help cover the cost of your pre-renovation and post-renovation energy audits, which is included in the $5000 total rebate maximum.
Where are the Other Rebate Programs?
After Union Gas was purchased by Enbridge Gas, the need for a streamlined approach to home energy efficiency rebates became increasingly necessary. As of May 1st, 2019 both the Union Gas Home Reno Rebate Program and the Enbridge Gas Home Energy Conservation Program have been combined to provide you with one source for rebates: the Home Efficiency Rebate.
As an added bonus to Enbridge Gas customers, they no longer have to reach a minimum of 10% natural gas savings per project, as was necessary in the older program.
