Before you spend money on an energy audit for your home, call Salmon Plumbing & Heating for a free assessment of your home comfort needs. We'll help you determine if it makes sense to replace your equipment. We'll also help you select a furnace or boiler that will qualify for the rebates. We'll help you get started with the next step of contacting a participating certified energy advisor in your area. This is an independent third party who will test the efficiency of your home and provide you with a list of improvements to make your home more energy efficient.
Your energy advisor will conduct a pre-renovation assessment on your home. Going from basement to attic, your home's current energy use is determined and a final report will outline the upgrades you need. This assessment takes 2-3 hours. Upon completion of the program you will be reimbursed up to $600 for the cost of the assessment, excluding HST.
To qualify for the program you must complete at least 2 of the eligible renovations. Have a registered contractor perform work such as replacement windows and improved insulation. Salmon Plumbing & Heating is registered to do boilers, furnaces, air conditioners and hot water heaters.
Contact your energy advisor to come back to your home to conduct a post renovation assessment. This inspection will take 1-2 hours and must be completed within 120 days of your first assessment. Your energy advisor will show you how much difference your upgrades have made to your energy efficiency. Your advisor will submit all the required paperwork to Union Gas. Your rebate cheque will arrive within 90 business days of submission.
