Energy Efficiency Alberta Rebates & How to Save on a New Furnace
As of this year (2018), Alberta is stepping up their game with all new rebates on a variety of home renovations including
- Furnace Rebates (see below)
- Thermostats (see below)
- Tankless hot water heaters
- and more…
offering consumers tons of savings on a variety of different home upgrades. Not only do these rebates help you save a few extra dollars on the cost of renovations they help push homeowners to use less energy in their home ultimately save on monthly energy bills.
Alberta Furnace Rebates 2018 | Savings On New Furnaces
For us here at JPS Furnace & Air Conditioning this new rebate is available with many of our products and helps our customers save even more.
Most specifically are the Rebates on Furnaces that come with ECM’s (electronically communicate motors).
“An ECM can save 15% of your electricity use “
Energy Efficiency Rebates on Thermostats
On top the $75 rebate on ECM Furnaces there is also a $75 rebate on smart thermostats. These thermostats have the ability to properly schedule your HVAC system throughout the day to get the absolute most savings out of your monthly bills.
Scheduling to have your furnace system to run when your home and have it off when you’re away are just some of the many savings you can see with a Smart Thermostat.
How Much Can I Save With Rebates?
The rebate itself that is offered by Energy Efficiency Alberta is only $75 which is relatively low when you see the average costs of furnaces in Calgary.
However, the 15% savings per month on an ECM motor definitely adds up way beyond that small upfront rebate.
However, with our high-efficiency ECM Furnaces, you can save up to $1,800 with a new installation. This includes annual maintenance, the best warranty in Calgary, top-rated services and high-efficiency furnaces that are up to 98% efficient.
What Is Energy Efficiency Alberta?
Energy Efficiency Alberta (EEA) is a new Government of Alberta agency that is dedicated to helping the province save energy. The agency was born out of the Climate Leadership Plan and released their four initial programs to Albertans in the spring of 2017.
Energy Efficiency Alberta Savings Programs
Every Albertan is eligible for this program, whether you own your own country home or rent a condo in downtown Calgary. An EEA installer will walk through your home and offer energy efficient products — at no charge — to increase your overall efficiency. LED bulbs, high-efficiency showerheads, faucet aerators and advanced power bars are all examples of products that you could receive.
The second initiative of the EEA is to provide online rebates on certain energy-efficient appliances like refrigerators, washing machines, and smart thermostats. Additionally, they are offering home improvement rebates that can allow Albertans to save on new home insulation or windows to increase overall efficiency.
For those that own businesses, the EEA is encouraging organizations to replace lightings, water heaters and HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) units with high-efficiency equipment.
Looking toward the future, the EEA is rewarding those that want to use renewable energy by offering a rebate on the installation of a solar photovoltaic (pv) system.
