Please note as of March 31, 2017 that the individual Air Sealing Improvements rebate has been discontinued and is now incorporated into the Insulation Improvements rebate.
This is for upgrades in insulation levels of an existing home’s walls, foundation/crawlspace, and/or ceiling. A basic insulation upgrade (+R10 to R19) is calculated at $0.50/sf. A high performance insulation (=R20) upgrade is calculated at $2.50/sf.
Eligible components are part of the thermal enclosure and have an exterior surface area (ceiling, walls, rim joist, slab). 20% or more of a component must be insulated to qualify for rebate.
A Natural Resources Canada certified energy advisor must complete an energy assessment and provide energy modeling to you prior to initiating the renovations and after the insulation upgrades.
You can then proceed with the insulation upgrade after the initial energy assessment.
Once the renovation is complete, a Natural Resources Canada certified energy advisor must perform a second energy assessment on your home to measure the efficiencies gained.
You may apply for the insulation incentive once per household per fiscal year (April 1 to March 31).
You contact a Natural Resources Canada certified energy advisor to schedule the energy assessments.
