EnerGuide for Houses
EnerGuide is the official Government of Canada mark that rates the energy
consumption of products for the home, at work and on the road. Look for the
EnerGuide label on major household appliances, gas fireplaces and room air
conditioners. You can also find EnerGuide ratings printed on the back of
manufacturers’ brochures for furnaces, heat pumps and central air conditioners.
Many older houses, some new homes and all new vehicles now carry
the EnerGuide label. A good rating is your proof of more efficient energy performance. Grants will range from about $116 to as much as $3,348, depending on how much work has been done.
