How The Greener Homes Grant Can Help You Save On Home Insulation
Posted in Attic Insulation, on December 23, 2021
The Greener Homes grant can help you have big time on home insulation in Toronto. As the days grow shorter and the temperatures drop, heating bills increase. This is especially true for older homes, where windows leak heat and insulation doesn’t have a sealed air or vapor barrier. That’s why the Greener Homes Grant is so critical for home improvement. The Grant can help you upgrade your attic insulation in Toronto, which will lead to lower heating bills and warmer homes this winter.
The Greener Homes Grant
The Greener Homes Grant is a program through the Ontario government that helps homeowners pay for home energy upgrades, including insulation. If you qualify, you could receive a $1500 rebate to use towards full service insulation from a participating company like ours. On average, homes that upgrade to full-service insulation save about 35-40% on heating and cooling costs. This can amount to hundreds of dollars per year for homeowners who previously paid more than $2000/year on their heating and cooling bills alone. Homeowners could be saving thousands of dollars per year by upgrading to quality home insulation.
How It Works
The Greener Homes Grant Program is available for all Ontario households who are low- to moderate-income. The program provides up to $1,500 towards the purchase and installation of insulation. Households that have not received any other insulation grants or programs qualify for 50% off their first year's hydro bill rebate through the Affordable Comfort Solutions program. Insulation crews will offer free energy audits to identify energy efficiency opportunities at your home once you've installed an upgrade furnace or central air conditioning system with a $25 minimum equipment charge financed over 24 months with no upfront deposit required. Another perk of this rebate is an HST exemption, so eligible households save 7% on home improvement products purchased by registered suppliers!
