Greener Home Grants
The Canadian government has prioritized the need for climate action in an effort to build ‘A Healthy Environment and a Healthy Economy’ – the name of their new, strengthened climate plan. This agenda represents an opportunity to protect the environment, generate new jobs and create a cleaner and greener economy.
What does this mean for you as a homeowner? The possibility of greener living, improved heating for the best indoor comfort, and monthly energy savings. With the assistance of the grant, it is now easier and more economical to make the switch to more energy-efficient equipment such as heat pumps. These appliances will reduce energy waste to minimize your carbon footprint and the negative impacts on critical ecosystems.
In recent years, there has been a large influx of people switching to efficient home appliances, and according to the NRDC, if just 1 in 10 households bought Energy-Star labeled heating and cooling equipment, we could avoid dumping 13 billion pounds of CO2 emissions into the environment each year.
A heat pump is an electrically-driven device that extracts heat from a low temperature place and delivers it to a higher temperature place. So, when you invest in an efficient home, you cut carbon dioxide emissions and your utility bills.
You can earn up to a maximum total rebate of $5,600, including up to $5000 total for the implementation of eligible retrofits as well as an audit reimbursement of $600.
