Did you know your renovation must use government approved equipment to be eligible for a rebate? A certified vendor will provide you with approved equipment to ensure you are eligible.
Are high-efficiency furnaces eligible for a rebate?

While high-efficiency furnaces and gas-fired water heaters are not eligible for reimbursement under the Canada Greener Homes grant, some provincial or municipal programs might allow grants for this equipment (e.g., Edmonton).

Do I need a permit to install a Ground-Sourced Heat Pump?

Your Service Provider will be able to provide an assessment to see what is required for your specific property.

What is the difference between Air-Sourced & Ground-Sourced Heat Pumps?

In Canada, where air temperatures can go below -30 C, Ground-Source systems can operate more efficiently because they take advantage of warmer and more stable ground temperatures. Ground-Sourced systems are very efficient and have heating cost savings of around 65% compared with electric furnaces.

Ground-Sourced Heat Pumps tend to be more expensive to install and sometimes require an installation permit.

Given the need to drill and install equipment underground, Ground-Sourced Heat Pumps might not be a practical solution in densely populated urban settings.

Air-Sourced Heat Pumps use the outdoor air as a thermal energy source in heating mode and as a sink to reject energy in cooling mode.

Can heat pumps be used in Alberta's climate?

Yes, according to the Canadian Geothermal Energy Association, there is a geothermal resource potential of 388,500 megawatts (MW) in Alberta that can be used under existing technical, structural and ecologic restrictions (with a 14% recovery rate.)

Do heat pumps use more electricity?

Yes, it is recommended to pair your heat pumps with solar panels. We can help get a quote for your solar PV system based on your heat pumps requirements.

Do I need an EnerGuide Assessment for a thermostat?

The smart thermostat or resiliency measures must be combined with another energy efficiency retrofit/upgrade from the Canada Greener Homes grant program.

All equipment must be purchased in Canada.

Online purchases are only eligible if ordered from an online distributor in Canada.

Which retrofits are NOT eligible for the federal grants?
  1. Retrofits installed before a pre-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation.
  2. Retrofits installed before December 1, 2020
  3. Leased or rented equipment
  4. Retrofits for rental properties
  5. Furnaces (unless you live in a northern or off-grid community)
  6. Air conditioners
  7. Tankless or gas storage water heaters
  8. Skylights
  9. Boilers (unless you live in a northern or off-grid community)
  10. Roofs
How do I get reimbursed, and what is the criteria?

You will need an in-home energy audit (EnerGuide assessment) before and after your retrofit is installed to be eligible for a rebate.

Licensed and trained professionals must install the equipment. Saaf works with approved vendors with proof of a license to install equipment in each province or territory with approved brands.

Depending on the retrofit chosen, the vendor may need to fill an Attestation form certifying that they are licensed to install the equipment; the equipment is government approved and purchased in Canada.

Think smart before you start
Your utility costs increase when air leaks from your building envelope through the outer walls, windows, doors, and other openings. Avoid the disappointment of losing out on significant utility bill savings or ending up with lacklustre post-evaluation EnerGuide rating. Evaluate the air sealing in your home before installing your energy-efficient upgrade.
