HEATING & COOLING INCENTIVES PROGRAM

With as much as 60% of your yearly electricity costs going toward heating and cooling your home, it makes sense to look for ways to reduce your usage. With the Heating & Cooling Incentive you can receive up to $650 by installing an ENERGY STAR® qualified central heating or cooling system.

New to 2014, residences that do not currently have CAC systems are now eligible to apply for this incentive.

Visit www.saveonenergy.ca for more details about the rebate.
