As of July 13, 2011, the Federal Government of Canada has renewed the EcoENERGY Retrofit – Homes program that offers grants up to $5,000 to assist homeowners to 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 – aims for the homeowners to replace their energy in-efficient appliances, such as old furnaces and air conditioners with high-efficiency HVAC equipment. These replacements will not only result in lower energy consumptions – and ultimately lower fuel and hydro bills – they will also correspond to lower emission levels of harmful greenhouse gasses, such as carbon dioxide (a product of combustion).
