Skyrocketing energy costs affect everyone. The cost of heating and cooling your home, however, hits us harder here in Winnipeg, where the temperature swings a lot further between extremes than most places in North America.
Many of our homes were built decades ago, when energy costs were less of a concern, and insulation standards were a lot more relaxed than they are today. This can translate to heating and cooling bills that are, quite frankly, burdensome for today’s Manitoba homeowners.
If you live in a detached, semi-detached, or modular home on a permanent foundation that was built before 1999, you may qualify for Manitoba Hydro’s Power Smart Home Insulation Program. This program will rebate a portion of the cost of upgrading the insulation in your home. To find out how much you might receive, they’ve put a handy calculator on their webpage here.
In order to qualify, you need to register and get approval for your project. Then, when the work is complete, you send a receipt from the retailer or contractor who installed your insulation (within 30 days) and you will receive your rebate.
