Eligible Retrofits

Home Insulation (up to $5,000)

The Canadian Greener Homes Grant allows homeowners to increase their home insulation. This slows the rate of heat loss, resulting in improved energy use and can help save money. The insulation’s resistance to heat flow is measured using both an RSI value and an R-value. R-value is the imperial measurement and the Résistance Système International (RSI) value is the metric measurement. The higher the resistance value, the slower the rate of heat transfer through the insulating material. Recommendations on insulation improvements and the calculation of your incentive will use these values.

All equipment must be purchased in Canada. Online purchases are only eligible if they are ordered from an online distributor in Canada.

Attic / Ceiling Insulation

Relatively easy access makes the attic a favourite starting point to insulate for many homeowners. Even if an attic is already insulated, you may be able to improve comfort and increase the energy efficiency. 

Eligibility criteria for reimbursement:

  • Insulate a minimum of 20% of the total area of your attic or ceiling.
  • You must increase the insulation value (R-value or RSI).
  • Add insulation in the same location (e.g., attic floor vs. attic ceiling) as the insulation present at the time of the pre-retrofit evaluation.

Important:

  • The grant amounts reflect a situation where 100% of the ceiling area is one roof type. Your home may have a combination of ceiling types.
  • The total grant for any combination of attic, cathedral ceiling and flat roof insulation cannot exceed $1,800.
  • The total amount of your reimbursement will be calculated based on the total percentage of your attic that you choose to insulate. For example, if you insulate 80% of your attic you would qualify for 80% of the amount listed below.
Select below the current level of insulation in your home at the time of the pre-evaluation: Grant amounts
(by the level of additional insulation added to your home)
If you achieve a total minimum insulation value of RSI 8.81 (R-50) for your attic If you achieve a total minimum insulation value of RSI 4.93 (R-28) for your flat roof and/or cathedral ceiling If you insulate your uninsulated flat roof or cathedral ceiling to increase its insulation value by a minimum of RSI 3.52 (R-20)

Heating (up to $5,000)

Disclaimer

Canada’s cold climate means that space heating accounts for over 60% of the energy used in the average Canadian home. Make the switch to more energy-efficient heating equipment such as a heat pump to cut your utility bill and reduce your carbon footprint. Keep in mind that the cost of energy to operate a product over its lifetime is just as important as its purchase price.

Many homes in moderate climates can rely on these heat pumps to heat or cool their homes year-round. In colder climates, a “cold-climate” heat pump is more effective and reduces the need for a supplementary heating source. A heat pump is an electrically driven device that extracts heat from a low temperature place and delivers it to a higher temperature place.

A contractor or energy advisor can help with estimating the economics of heat pumps in your area, and the potential savings you can achieve. Heat pumps in general can come at a higher cost compared to other heating systems due to the number of components in the system. In some regions and cases, this added cost can be recouped and significant GHGs savings can be made in a relatively short period through energy cost savings. However, in other regions, varying utility rates can extend this period. Speak with your energy advisor to see if a heat pump is right for you.

Disclaimer

Your new pump must be on one of the eligible list of products below in order to be eligible for reimbursement.

All equipment must be purchased in Canada. Online purchases are only eligible if they are ordered from an online distributor in Canada.

Resiliency Measures (up to $2,625)

Resiliency Measures

Climate change and its effects often hit close to home. Many environmental factors related to climate change can have an impact on your home causing fire, flooding, wind and loss of power. Your home and its location can help you identify your specific vulnerabilities to climate change.

If you are in the process of making upgrades to your home, consider additional retrofits that could help protect your home and your family from environmental damages at the same time.

Eligibility criteria for reimbursement:

The resiliency measure detailed below must be combined with an energy efficiency retrofit from the Canadian Greener Homes Grants initiative.

Option Incentive amount
Batteries connected to Photovoltaic systems to provide standby power for home $1,000
Roofing Membrane – self-adhering roofing underlayment applied to entire roof $150
Foundation water-proofing $875
Moisture proofing crawl space floor, walls and headers (100%) $600

 

Multi-Unit Residential Buildings (MURBs)

Criteria

A small MURB is a building of three or fewer storeys in height, having a building area not exceeding 600 m2, and are not retirement homes. MURBs must either be stacked (up/down) or have a common area – townhomes are not MURBs.

Eligibility criteria for reimbursement:

  • The small MURB must conform with the definition set out by the Greener Homes Grant initiative
  • A single EnerGuide evaluation must be undertaken of the entire structure (or address) and not on a unit by unit basis.
  • Homeowners within the MURB need to organize themselves (e.g. by way of condo board) in such a way that all homeowners are aware that evaluation has taken place.
  • Retrofits in a MURB must be agreed to by the person or persons able to make decisions about the renovations to the building.
  • Individual homeowners within the MURB must apply for individual grants of up to $5,000 based on the single EnerGuide evaluation undertaken for the entire structure.
Insulation and Air Sealing

The maximum allowable amount for building envelope measures – adding insulation and/or air sealing – in MURBs will be calculated based on the number of units within the building. The table below provides the multiplier amount.

Number of dwelling units per MURB 2–3 4–6 7–9 10–12 13–16 17+
MURB Multiplier 1.0 1.5 2.0 2.5 3.0 4.0

For example, a MURB having 9 units wanting to claim amounts for both air sealing and exposed wall insulation would be calculated as follows:

(Air Sealing Maximum $1,000 x 2.0 = $2,000) + (Exposed wall insulation $350 x 2.0 = $700) = $2,700

Reimbursements for building envelope measures must be claimed by one homeowner only and cannot be split by two homeowners. In other words, if one homeowner in a MURB only claims a portion of the measure, another home owner cannot claim the remainder.

Insulation and Air Sealing

The maximum allowable amount for building envelope measures – adding insulation and/or air sealing – in MURBs will be calculated based on the number of units within the building. The table below provides the multiplier amount.

Number of dwelling units per MURB 2–3 4–6 7–9 10–12 13–16 17+
MURB Multiplier 1.0 1.5 2.0 2.5 3.0 4.0

For example, a MURB having 9 units wanting to claim amounts for both air sealing and exposed wall insulation would be calculated as follows:

(Air Sealing Maximum $1,000 x 2.0 = $2,000) + (Exposed wall insulation $350 x 2.0 = $700) = $2,700

Reimbursements for building envelope measures must be claimed by one homeowner only and cannot be split by two homeowners. In other words, if one homeowner in a MURB only claims a portion of the measure, another home owner cannot claim the remainder.

Windows and Doors

The windows and doors grants are calculated on a rough opening* basis. The allocated grant amount is the same as for a home. MURBs can install as many windows and/or doors up to a total of $5,000 per homeowner and a maximum of $20,000 per MURB.

*A rough opening is the structural framing in a wall or roof separating a heated from unheated space that creates an opening for the installation of a window, door or skylight. For example, a bay window with three window units installed into one rough opening is eligible for only one grant.

Getting Started

Pre-Retrofit Home Energy Evaluation

To be eligible for reimbursement, participants in the Greener Homes Initiative must obtain an EnerGuide Home Energy Evaluation, performed by a Natural Resources Canada Registered Energy Advisor — before the retrofits begin.

Register with Natural Resources Canada

REGISTER HERE

Plan, Document, and Complete your Home Retrofits

After you receive the EnerGuide Home Energy Report in the portal from your Energy Advisor, you may review the recommendations for your home retrofits and decide which retrofits work best for your budget and renovation plans.

You will need to complete at least one retrofit that is both eligible and recommended by your Energy Advisor. You can find your home’s recommendations in your Renovations Upgrade Report and the online portal.

Book your Post-Retrofit Evaluation and Apply for Reimbursement

Once you have completed your home retrofits, you can start the reimbursement process. To be reimbursed, you need to book your post-retrofit evaluation with Windfall Home Energy and submit all your required documents online or by mail.

Once your evaluation is complete, a new EnerGuide label and a post-evaluation report will show you how much more energy-efficient your home has become.

Receive Your Reimbursement

Before Natural Resources Canada finalizes your reimbursement, you will need to confirm your grant total in the Greener Homes online portal. This is the last step before you receive your cheque.

Documents to Provide

To ensure that you are properly reimbursed, you must have all of the following documents so we can verify your eligible retrofits:

  • Receipts for your pre- and post-retrofit EnerGuide Home Energy Evaluation
  • All receipts and invoices for products purchased and for their installation

Stacking with Provincial, Territorial and Municipal Programs

Homeowners may stack grant funding with other retrofit grant programs in their region.

Participants will be required to declare funding or rebates received from other sources.

Homeowners will not be reimbursed through the Canada Greener Homes Grant for more than 100% of the total investment made on each eligible retrofit measure or for more than $600 maximum offered through the Canada Greener Homes Grant for the pre and post retrofit EnerGuide evaluations.
