Information, focusing on refunds and rebates for Yukon homeowners.
As we progress toward higher energy costs, building energy efficiency into your home will pay back increasingly, increasing the value of your home.
The key is putting the money, you save on heating, towards your mortgage payment. It is possible for energy efficient upgrades to pay for themselves.
I am researching competitive suppliers of cost-competitive, energy-efficient products. This will include heat pumps, HRVs, furnaces and other products, systems and information.
I will continue to research and post rebates and information for homeowners. For now, I have listed a few rebates, as follows:
Property Tax Grant
Yukon Home Owner’s Grant
Natural Resources Canada

10% refund on your CMHC mortgage insurance, for:
A) Buying an energy-efficient home
B) Purchasing a house and making energy-saving renovations
C) Renovating your existing home to make it more energy efficient
D) Benefits of a CMHC Green Home
