Canadian Homeowners will be big winners now that the Federal Government has officially launched it ecoENERGY Retrofit initiative, offering financial incentives to Canadians who improve their home's energy efficiency.
To take advantage of the program, homeowners first must complete an assessment by a licensed energy evaluator who will determine the home's current energy rating. Using the report's recommendations, homeowners have 18 months to complete the upgrades.
Grants of up to $5000 are available based on individual retrofit initiatives. The average grant is expected to be close to $1,100 and can be for such upgrades as: furnace, heat recovery ventilator, central air conditioner, retrofit doors and/or windows.
