Last week we got our second installment for the ecoEnergy Retrofit Program.
This time it was a $4,270 cheque from the federal government!
Again there was absolutely no information accompanying the cheque so we have no idea what the money specifically relates to but I am guessing this is our full payment from the federal program.
Replace furnace with 95% high efficiency furnace:
Replace hot water tank with instant hot water system:
Insulate walls (spray foam):
Insulate attic and cathedral ceiling
(blown fiberglass, spray foam):
Install new EnergyStar windows and doors:
Improve air seal (spray foam, new windows & doors):
Cost: $0 (Included in items above)
Install low flow toilets:
Total Cost: $25,103
Total Predicted Rebate: $4,330
Total Rebate: $4,270
We are pretty stoked to have achieved almost the full rebate - not sure what the $60 discrepancy is for - and to have almost achieved the $5,000 maximum rebate. We also got a $1969 rebate from the Alberta government for the insulation and are still trying to get a $600 rebate for the furnace from the provincial government.
All said and done, we will have re-cooperated over 25% of the improvement costs - not including the savings due to the reduced energy consumption!
I have been tracking our energy consumption since we bought our house six years ago so I am most excited to see how our utility bills change over the next year.
