Retrofitting Existing Homes

ECO-Energy Efficiency - Grants for Homeowners

This new program replaces the former national EnerGuide for Homes Program (NOTE: some provinces still carry the EnerGuide for Homes program).

Home owners and those that own small rental properties can have properties assessed for energy improvements using this new federal program. Drain water heat recovery units, among other select energy upgrades, are eligible for a grant when installed as part of the energy upgrade. The current grants for drain water heat recovery units are:

ReTherm units 3/4 meter to 1 meter in length:       $50 grant
ReTherm units longer than 1 meter in length:       $100 grant

Program details are available at: ecoENERGY residential energy assessment
