In our last blog post, we discussed the decision made by Ontario’s Progressive Conservative government to end the Green Ontario Fund. While Tropical Insulation is still committed to completing all contracted work before the official cut-off date, October 31st, any work that was not contracted before June 19th, 2018 is unable to benefit from the rebate. Despite the cancellation of GreenON, we are pleased to inform our customers of the variety of rebate programs that are still available.
Home Energy Loan Program (HELP)
Through the Home Energy Loan Program, homeowners are able to benefit from low-interest loans of up to $75,000 to aid in the coverage of home improvement costs. The program includes basement, attic, and exterior wall insulation amongst a variety of other home improvement categories available to qualify for a loan. With interest rates as low as 2%, and terms of up to 15 years, HELP is extremely HELPful for homeowners who want to improve their homes over time and still have the ability to access other rebates offered by the Province of Ontario and utility companies. Following an easy application process, funding must be approved. After successfully completing these steps, the homeowner can hire a contractor of their choosing to complete their home renovations.

Home Weatherization Program
The Home Weatherization Program offered from Enbridge is important to know about as the weather in Ontario starts to get colder. Applicants who qualify for this program can receive new insulation and draft proofing installed by experienced professionals for free! Yes, free. No catch. Living conditions that expose you and your family to drafts can be hard on physical health. Fewer drafts will mean a more comfortable household. Tropical Insulation is happy to partner with Enbridge to offer this beneficial program.

Home Reno Rebate
In partnership with the Government of Ontario and Save on Energy, Union Gas offers the Home Reno Rebate. If you own a detached, semi-detached, townhouse, or mobile home that is heated by natural gas, oil, propane, electricity or wood within the Union Gas program area, you could be eligible for this great rebate program. Those who are eligible must complete at least two renovations from the offered options which include the heating system, insulation, water heater, windows/doors, appliances, and more!
