Home Insulation (up to $5,000)

Homeowners will be able to increase their home insulation in their attic/ceiling, exterior walls, exposed floors, basement/foundation, and crawl space through the Canadian Greener Homes Grant. Investing in insulation will slow the rate of heat loss, improving home energy use, and helping you save money. We use an RSI value and an R-value to measure insulation’s resistance to heat flow. Résistance Système International (RSI) is the metric measurement while the R-value is the imperial measurement. Higher resistance values are beneficial as they mean a slower rate of heat transfer through insulating materials. Our expert energy advisors will provide you with recommendations on insulation improvements and the calculation of your incentive using these values.

You can learn more about insulation materials here.

Note: All equipment purchases must be made in Canada. Online purchases may only be eligible if they are ordered from an online distributor in Canada.

Attic / Ceiling Insulation

Insulating your attic is a common starting point due to its relatively easy access for installation. An already insulated attic can still benefit from a review to increase comfort and energy efficiency.

Learn more about insulation here.

To be eligible for reimbursement:

  • Insulate at least 20% of the total area of your ceiling or attic.
  • The insulation value must be increased (R-value or RSI).
  • Add insulation in the same location (e.g., attic floor vs. attic ceiling) as the existing insulation when the pre-retrofit evaluation is undertaken.

Note:

  • The grant amounts reflect a situation where 100% of the ceiling area is one roof type. Your home may have a combination of ceiling types.
  • The total grant for any combination of attic, cathedral ceiling, and flat roof insulation cannot exceed $1,800.
  • The total amount of your reimbursement will be calculated based on the total percentage of your attic that you choose to insulate. For example, if you insulate 70% of your attic you would qualify for 70% of the amount listed below.

Heating (up to $5,000)

Space heating accounts for over 60% of the energy used in the average Canadian household due to the region’s cold climate. Cut your utility bills and carbon emissions by switching to more energy-efficient heating equipment, such as a heat pump. The cost of energy to operate a product over its lifetime is just as, if not more important than its upfront price.

Learn more about energy-efficient heating equipment here.

A heat pump is an electrically driven device that extracts heat from a low-temperature place and delivers it to a higher temperature place. Relying on a heat pump to heat or cool your home year-round in a moderate climate is effective. However, a ‘cold climate’ heat pump is more effective in colder climates and reduces the need for supplemental heat sources.

Learn more about heat pumps here.

Our energy advisors can assist with the estimation of the economics of heat pumps in your area to figure out your potential savings. Heat pumps can be more expensive than other heating systems due to the internal system components. In certain situations and regions, due to energy cost savings, this cost can be recouped and significant GHGs savings can be made relatively quickly. This timeline can be extended due to varying utility rates in different regions. Speak with one of our energy advisors to figure out if a heat pump or a ‘cold climate’ heat pump is right for you.

Note:

  • Your new pump must be on one of the eligible list of products below in order to be eligible for reimbursement.
  • All equipment must be purchased in Canada.
  • Online purchases are only eligible if they are ordered from an online distributor in Canada.

Multi-Unit Residential Buildings (MURBs)

A small MURB is a three or fewer storey building, with a building area not above 600m^2, and is not a retirement home. They must be stacked (up/down) or have a common area. Townhomes cannot be MURBS.

Read more about the full definition and eligibility here.

To be eligible for reimbursement:

  • The small MURB must adhere to the definition laid out by the Greener Homes Grant initiative
  • A single EnerGuide evaluation must be undertaken of the entire structure (or address) and not on a unit by unit basis.
  • All homeowners must be aware that an evaluation has occurred through an internal organization (e.g. by way of condo board)
  • Retrofits in a MURB must be agreed to by the person or persons able to make decisions about the renovations to the building.
  • Individual homeowners within the MURB must apply for individual grants of up to $5,000 based on the single EnerGuide evaluation undertaken for the entire structure.

Calculating incentives:

Insulation and Air Sealing

You can calculate the maximum allowable amount for building envelope measures – adding insulation and/or air sealing – in MURBs based on the number of units within the building.

The following table outlines the multiplier amount:

Number of dwelling units per MURB2–34–67–910–1213–1617+
MURB Multiplier1.01.52.02.53.04.0

You would calculate a MURB with 9 units wanting to claim amounts for both air sealing and exposed wall insulation as follows:

(Air Sealing Maximum $1,000 x 2.0 = $2,000) + (Exposed wall insulation $350 x 2.0 = $700) = $2,700

Note:

  • Only one homeowner may claim reimbursements for building envelope measures. This may not be split between two homeowners.
  • If one homeowner in a MURB only claims a portion of the measure, the remainder cannot be claimed by another homeowner.

Windows and Doors

Windows and doors grants are calculated on a rough opening* basis. MURBs receive the same allocated grant amount as homes. MURBs can install as many windows and/or doors up to a total of $5,000 per homeowner and a maximum of $20,000 per MURB.

*A rough opening is the structural framing in a wall or roof separating a heated from unheated space that creates an opening for the installation of a window, door or skylight. For example, a bay window with three window units installed into one rough opening is eligible for only one grant.

Heating and Cooling

Small MURBs do not qualify for measures related to heat pumps or domestic water heaters.

Thermostats will not qualify for the multiplier for MURBs.

Renewables and Resiliency

Small MURBs can apply the multiplier for the installation of a photovoltaic (PV) system (max $5,000) and for resiliency measures.
