It’s Time to Apply for Heating & Cooling Rebates in Ontario Before It Gets Too Late!

Summer season is the one season you can’t live without air conditioning. So, if you are looking to buy a new air conditioning unit, it is very important to factor in a few things in order to make a wise purchase decision. The things to consider include; the latest models, whether a particular model is energy efficient or not, and most importantly, the rebates.

If you are thinking of buying any kind of new HVAC equipment, here is what you need to know!

1- Costly HVAC Equipment Means More Incentives

The HVAC equipment that is highly priced usually comes with higher government rebates and incentives. Mostly, high rebates are offered on HVAC equipment that is energy efficient.

2- Increase in Rebates During Summers  

Government and power companies are all in for encouraging people to use energy efficient HVAC equipment in order to reduce energy consumption, especially during the summer season. This is why the government offers higher rebates and incentives in summer season when people are expected to buy new AC units. When you’re buying, you might as well buy energy efficient equipment!

In Canada, similar grants and government benefits are offered to Canadian homeowners who are interested in buying new HVAC equipment. The main agenda behind offering such benefits is to offset the repair and maintenance cost of your existing HVAC unit or its upgrading cost.

These government incentives and rebates vary from province to province and are subject to amendment or change any day. What brand you purchase is not important. What matters is that you buy a new energy-efficient model. It’s better if you buy a model that is ENERGY STAR certified. This is what’s going to qualify you for availing the rebates. The one thing that you need to keep in mind is that it’s difficult to get rebates and incentives once you have already replaced your air conditioner, furnace, and water heater etc.

Rebates & Incentives in Ontario

In Ontario, such rebates and incentives are offered by Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO), which was formerly known as Ontario Power Authority (OPA). Here are a few details about the rebates offered by the company:

  • The rebates are known as “Save on Energy” rebates and they do not require energy audits.
  • The HVAC equipment must be purchased from a company that is registered to offer these rebates.
  • Once the company has installed the new HVAC equipment at your place, it will file for the rebates and you will be given a check within the next six months.

It’s best to take advantage of these rebates and incentives in the summer season before the government cancels them. If you’re considering buying a new furnace, air conditioner, or any other HVAC equipment, then contact Cozy Comfort Plus and request a quote at your earliest. Our contractors will inform you about the new energy efficient models in the market and will provide you all the details pertaining to the current government credits and rebates.

We were looking to replace A/C, furnace and water heater and had a number of companies provide quotes. Brian of Cozy Comfort Plus was the most engaging person we met and most importantly, the person we trusted the most. His price was very competitive and we decided to go with him. His team of four men, led by Mir, came in and got the job done in one day. We are very happy with the Lennox equipment and the professional installation job done by Cozy Comfort Plus.

Brian once again helped me with my project. Before I have installed a gas fireplace and this time I have installed an LG heat pump with 3 indoor heads. We had an amazing experience with Brian and his team for both projects from quote to installation. Brian is experienced, patient, reliable, and provides great friendly service. He’s also tells very interesting life stories which makes enhances the whole experience. All my future business is going to his company. Thanks again Brian!

From installation to maintenance, Cozy Comfort Plus Inc. provided us with prompt, quality service. It took under a day to install our Mitsubishi split-type air conditioner in May, 2021. This week, they attended to cleaning our unit’s filters in less than a day’s notice. The technician explained how to remove, clean and reinstall the filters ourselves which will save us money down the road. I highly recommend Cozy Comfort without reservation.
