HER

The Home Efficiency Rebate, or HER, is the newest rebate initiative put on through Enbridge Gas. HER offers rebates for insulation upgrades, furnace, water heater, and window and door replacements, as well as air sealing. 

 

The first qualification step for the Home Efficiency Rebate is to have an energy assessment, or energy audit, completed on your home by a Registered Energy Advisor before any renovations have begun. The energy assessment will provide you with an energy efficiency roadmap that demonstrates where your home could see improvements from certain energy efficient upgrades. You’ll also be provided with a list of recommended upgrades, and your home will receive an EnerGuide rating

 

With the Home Efficiency Rebate, it’s required that you also have a final energy assessment completed after all of the renovations or upgrades have been completed. You’ll receive another updated EnerGuide label for your home that reflects your home’s new rating after your upgrades. Your Registered Energy Advisor will then submit all of your paperwork for you in order to qualify.

What Is An Energy Audit?

An Energy audit, or energy assessment, is a comprehensive examination of the inner and outer workings of your home. The energy audit is performed by a Registered Energy Advisor, who is licensed through Natural Resources Canada. 

 

Your Registered Energy Advisor, or REA, will perform an air tightness test, or a blower door test, during the energy audit to measure how airtight your home is. 

 

Your REA will also provide you with a list of recommended upgrades, as well as an EnerGuide label for your home. 

Are The Energy Audits Free?

There is an upfront cost to have an energy audit completed on your home. However with the Home Efficiency Rebate, you receive over 90% of the audit fee back as part of your rebates! 

 

If you have any questions regarding energy audit fees, or how to qualify, call the BSG office at 1-866-333-3920.
