INSULATION REBATE PROGRAM
RECEIVE FINANCIAL REBATES FOR USING ENERGY EFFICIENT INSULATION
ALBERTA INSULATION REBATES
Insulation has been providing home and business owners with energy savings for decades. Sealing walls, attics, windows, floors, and basements can lower your unwanted air loss by upwards of 50%. As an added incentive, Energy Efficiency Alberta has launched a program to offer project rebates when property owners invest in these energy saving materials.
Contractors register with the network and when they are approved, they are able to offer products and services that allow for future rebates. Insulation rebates can be obtained across several types of insulation, including batts, blown-in, rigid board and spray foam.
At 4 Weather Insulation & Roofing, we were excited by the opportunity to provide a more rewarding service for our clients while improving our environment. Our team can help guide you through the rebate application process. For professional and energy efficient insulation services, contact 4 Weather Insulation & Roofing today!
Alberta Home Improvement Rebate Program
Starting on April 28, 2017, Energy Efficiency Alberta launched a program to provide property owners with financial rebates as a reward for investing in energy efficient materials. Energy efficient windows, appliances and insulation are the three main categories. The program aims to raise awareness about energy efficient material options, to promote an increased commitment to energy efficiency in our homes and businesses, as well as to promote the overall development of the energy efficiency industry. Insulation project rebates can save you up to $3,500.
How The Program Works
The promise of the program is that, the more energy savings the project will provide, the higher the rebate the homeowner will receive. First, contractors register and go through a screening process. Homeowners can then select from a list of registered contractors on the Alberta Energy Efficiency website. Contractors guide homeowners through each step of the application process and help determine the exact rebate amount the project could yield. When projects are completed, rebates are sent directly to homeowners.
Insulation Rebate Program
Insulation rebates are based on the area you choose to insulate, the size of that area, and the insulation material used. The respective increase in R-value also plays a role in defining the future project rebates. These are estimated rebate amounts for insulating 3 common areas of the home:
- Attic – When an attic’s R-value is increased from R-12 to R-50 the future rebate will likely be $54.50 per square foot of installed insulation.
- Main Walls – Increasing your wall insulation from R-12 to R-20 can offer a rebate upwards of $42.00 per square foot.
- Basements – Many basements are uninsulated and have an R-value of R-0. Improving this relative R-value to a basic R-12 can still offer rebate amounts well over $90.00 per square foot installed.
Working With An Insulation Contractor
All registered contractors on the Alberta Energy Efficiency program have undergone the same screening process to ensure they have the experience and capabilities to meet your insulation needs. 4Weather Insulation & Roofing is one of these companies who have been vetted by the Alberta Energy Efficiency program. Contractors have to prove that they are fully licensed and have $2 million in both liability as well as worker safety insurance. Contractors must also prove that they are registered with the Workers Compensation Board, have committed to future training requirements, and have a GST number that confirms the registration of the business.
