In today’s world, being energy-efficient is way of the future. Most homeowners want to save energy, and are concerned about climate change and what they can do to reduce it.
Canada is now a world leader in the fight against climate change, and the province of Ontario is offering thousands of dollars in rebates for homeowners who opt for energy-efficient renovations, including windows and insulation. Using a participating contractor, Ontario residents who live in a detached home, town-home or semi can take part in GreenON Rebates. If you rent, you must have the written permission of the landlord.
Minister of the Environment and Climate Change Chris Ballard said the program "will make it easy and more affordable" for homeowners to make environmentally-friendly choices for their home improvements. (CBC)
The government of Canada is offering different types of rebates in order to promote energy awareness and energy conservation. The idea is to protect your home with rebates for insulation and select high-performance windows for your home. This will help homeowners save on energy bills and will help the environment suffer less with all the climate change that is happening today.
It is important to remember that a well-insulated home keeps the temperature of any room the way you feel comfortable in, while helping to reduce heating and cooling costa and shrink your home’s carbon footprint.
