Here is a list of offers for Medicine Hat homeowners:
- Windows & Doors
- Heat Pumps
- Lighting fixtures
Insulation – through the Canadian Greener Homes Grant, homeowners can increase the insulation in their homes, crawl spaces, basements, ceilings, attic, exposed floors, or exterior walls.
Windows & Doors – through the Canadian Greener Homes Grant as well as other locally available rebate programs, you can receive rebates and/or financing for installing new windows and doors that meet NRCan’s performance standards. New windows and doors often offer a significant improvement to your home’s overall comfort and air sealing value. Be sure to have a professional install them so you get the maximum air sealing benefits!
Space & Water Heating – rebates and financing are available for air source and ground source heat pumps, as well as heat pump hot water heaters though the Greener Homes Grant. Heat pumps use the energy in the environment, such as the ground or air, and transfer it to be used for heating and cooling purposes. Since a heat pump transfers thermal energy, it offers a higher energy efficiency, which can save you energy costs and reduce your carbon footprint. Additional local rebate programs offer rebates and/or financing for high efficiency gas furnaces, and high efficiency gas and/or tankless hot water heaters.
Solar – Generous rebates are available for installing solar panels to service your home. This renewable energy source can offset your electricity usage, and when paired with battery storage, increase your electricity independence.
Lighting fixtures – The CEIP (Clean Energy Improvement Program) allows for financing for lighting upgrades, such as indoor lighting controls (motion and daylight sensing), and permanently installed and hardwired LED lighting fixtures such as downlight, track, ceiling, wall-mounted, or porchlight fixtures. Must be ENERGY STAR. Lighting – Clean Energy Improvement Program (abmunis.ca)
