Insulation Incentives

Get insulation incentives when you insulate a minimum of 20% of the total building component area. For example, 20% of the total ceiling area, regardless of how many different types of ceiling/roof/attic spaces you have. You must provide legible copies of receipts/invoices at the time of the final Home Energy Evaluation. Please see Eligibility Criteria for details in the program guidelines.

Need to remove existing insulation because it is mouldy, compressed, or just generally in bad shape? Make sure when you add new insulation that you replace the amount you removed plus the “minimum to add” shown in the table below.

*In the tables below, incentive ranges have been minimized to save space. You can still receive incentives for adding insulation amounts between the ranges shown.
