Canadians are more interested in lowering their energy consumption and reducing their overall carbon footprint than ever before. The good news is that, right now, the government is helping Canadians do just that through incentives like energy efficiency rebates and interest-free loans. In fact, you could get thousands of dollars back on eligible retrofits.
This means that you can upgrade your heating system with help from the government and reduce your carbon footprint. Read on to find out how.
Available Energy Efficiency Savings
Canada Greener Homes Grant
Through the Canada Greener Homes Grant, eligible homeowners can qualify for up to $6,500 to be used for the installation of a heat pump. Plus, homeowners can receive up to $600 to cover the cost of the necessary EnerGuide home energy evaluation.
Also available through the Canada Greener Homes Grant is interest-free financing. When you take advantage of this offer, you could get an interest-free loan of up to $40,000 to complete eligible retrofits and installations in your home. The loan has a repayment term of 10 years, with the option of receiving a portion of the loan upfront.
Upgrade to a Heat Pump for Max Energy Efficiency
Here in Canada, heating accounts for more than 60% of the energy used in the average Canadian household. That’s why the Government of Canada is investing in programs like the Canada Greener Homes Grant and encouraging Canadians to install heat pumps. They’re so efficient, the government is helping you pay for the installation.
Heat pumps are versatile 2-in-1 systems. They heat in the winter and they cool in the summer. Heat pumps require less energy to operate, and can help you reduce your home’s carbon footprint. And now, you can save money on the installation, too!
