On July 13, 2011, the Federal Government of Canada renewed the EcoENERGY Retrofit – Homes program that offers grants up to $5,000 to assist homeowners make their homes more energy-efficient. This rebate program, in combination with the Heating & Cooling Incentive program – brought to you by the Ontario Power Authorities – aimed for the homeowners to replace their energy inefficient appliances, such as old furnaces and air conditioners with high-efficiency hvac equipment. These replacements have not only resulted in lower energy consumption – and ultimately lower fuel and hydro bills – they will also correspond to lower emission levels of harmful greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide (products of combustion). While, the IESO’s (OPA’s) Heating and Cooling Incentive program will be valid throughout 2016, the EcoENERGY Retrofit program has long been expired. The Enbridge rebate, however, has provided much incentive in lieu of the EcoENERGY Retrofit program.
