At Alberta Mountain Air Heating and Air Conditioning, we give our customers a chance to save big when they’re wanting an upgrade on their home comfort. This grant provides homeowners with instant gratification when installing a thermostat, or getting help with a repair on a space or water heater. If you’re considering a repair or an installation for any of the products listed, the initiative could end up saving you big in the long run. Homeowners who focus on going green and wanting to save money will truly benefit from this. It will only save you money down the road.
If you’re in need of a new thermostat installation, or your thermostat has suddenly stopped working, you could need a repair. Our grant can help you out in a time of need such as a fast installation or repair. Or, if you’ve been thinking about a new space or water heater for your home that will increase your comfort, we can help lower the costs! Any homeowner in Canada may be eligible for the initiative, regardless of where they live. However, only one homeowner per household may apply.
About the Alberta Rebate Incentive
As part of the Canada Greener Homes Grant Initiative for a space or water heater, you could have access to up to $600 for pre- and post-retrofit EnerGuide evaluations and up to $5,000 total to help make energy efficient retrofits for your home. To receive a grant, you’ll need to pay upfront for two EnerGuide evaluations in order to receive up to that $600 through the initiative. The evaluations will recommend which of the eligible retrofits would be the best option for you to improve the energy within your home. The grant, itself, will provide up to $5,000, but the full amount is not guaranteed depending on the product. With that being said, you can only receive up to one grant per household and that’s if you go through the complete process.
The initiative for thermostats is a bit different. A homeowner can only receive up to $50 for a grant if they want to replace their old thermostat with a smart/adaptive thermostat. However, you cannot receive the grant unless you’re also completing one other retrofit from your pre-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation. Thermostats must be combined with another retrofit or else you will not be eligible.
What Kinds of Systems and Products Qualify?
What kind of systems or products can you get a rebate for? Alberta Mountain Air Heating and Air Conditioning can help you earn great rebates for space/water heaters and thermostats! Heat pumps are becoming more popular as they are more energy efficient and can actually save you space in your home. Water heaters are typically stored in your basement, but when something goes wrong, it can surely get expensive which is why we’re more than happy to help. Lastly, everyone has thermostats in their homes to help regulate the temperatures, but as technology evolves at a rapid rate, many people want to upgrade to a better, smarter system.
Why Heat Pumps?
Going more in-depth on space/water heaters, furnaces and boilers are excluded from this initiative unless it is a homeowner living in northern or off the grid communities. Making the switch to a heat pump can not only save you energy, but it can also save you money in the long run when you make the switch through our rebate program. To clarify, a heat pump is a device that uses energy from the environment, such as air, to transfer it for heating and cooling purposes. Thermal energy naturally flows from higher temperatures to locations with a lower temperature. This means that air continues to flow from warmer to colder places in order to keep a consistent temperature in an enclosed space. So, since heat pumps transfer thermal energy, it offers a higher energy efficiency. Therefore, you’re saving on energy costs and reducing your carbon footprint!
Many people in moderate climates are able to rely on heat pumps for heating and cooling their homes. A new heat pump called the cold-climate heat pump was introduced to improve performance in the winter months of providing heat. Most homeowners use the ground source heat pumps, which also perform just as well. Each kind of heat pump has their own grant within the Alberta Rebate Incentive, so the price will fluctuate depending on the type of heat pump you want for your home.
Along with space and water heaters, thermostats are also included. If you’re looking to install or replace an existing thermostat in your home to a smart thermostat, you could be eligible! However, you may only be eligible for said grant if you already have one other existing retrofit from the EnerGuide evaluation. Only then will you be able to receive a grant up to $50 that goes towards a new smart or programmable thermostat.
How do I qualify?
Eligible homeowners in Canada, no matter where you live, may qualify for the initiative. However, only one person per household may participate. As a homeowner you will be required to show proof of ownership with your property tax bill number and demonstrate that the property is your primary residence through a drivers license or a government issued ID with an address provided. In any case that you don’t have a property tax number, such as those in rural areas, Newfoundland, or First Nations on reserve, then another form of documentation will be accepted. Indigenious governments or organizations also may qualify for the initiative. However, indigenious governments or organizations may register more than one household, including homes that aren’t the owner’s primary residence. The homes must be owned by the applicant, but occupied by indigenious households.
Those that qualify will most likely be eligible to receive a grant, but they must complete a list of requirements first. As previously stated, they must complete a pre- and post-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation, complete at least one retrofit that is both eligible and recommended for their home, and provide and keep all copies of their documents.
Eligible homeowners may qualify for the initiative if they have done the following:
- Completed a pre- and post- EnerGuide evaluation
- Completed at least one retrofit
- Provided proof of ownership of your property
- Submitted all copies of documentation
