Qualifying appliances

Washers, refrigerators, freezers and dishwashers

Washers, refrigerators, freezers, dishwashers and ventless dryers must be ENERGY STAR®-certified to qualify for the rebate. Submit the EnerGuide label with the ENERGY STAR label that comes with your appliance as part of your rebate package documentation. View a complete listing of ENERGY STAR appliances.  

 

You may be eligible for an additional $50 refrigerator retirement rebate if you are replacing an inefficient refrigerator that is 10 years or older.

 

Ventless dryers

Ventless dryers must be ENERGY STAR-certified to qualify for a rebate. Traditional and ventless dryers use heated air to dry clothes. A traditional dryer exhausts the hot moist air from the house through a vent. A ventless dryer cools the hot moist air, condensing and collecting it. The water is removed from the dryer by a drain or tray. Ventless dryers eliminate the need for a vent penetrating through the wall of a house. This can reduce air leakage and combustion spillage from backdrafting of fossil-fueled heating appliances.

Choosing a heating system

Choosing a heating system can be a complicated decision. There are differences in fuel costs, heating system efficiencies and fuel storage requirements. Depending on which system you choose, you may have to replace an oil tank, rent propane tanks or store firewood. Switching to or increasing your electric heat may require upgrading your electrical panel or transmission line. You can use our home energy calculator to help you answer these questions. You can also call, email or stop by the Energy Solutions Centre to discuss your decision with an energy advisor.
