You may be eligible for an additional $50 refrigerator retirement rebate if you are replacing an inefficient refrigerator that is 10 years or older.
Ventless dryers must be ENERGY STAR certified to qualify for a rebate. Traditional and ventless dryers use heated air to dry clothes. A traditional dryer exhausts the hot moist air from the house through a vent. A ventless dryer cools the hot moist air, condensing and collecting it. The water is removed from the dryer by a drain or tray. Ventless dryers eliminate the need for a vent penetrating through the wall of a house. This can reduce air leakage and combustion spillage from backdrafting of fossil-fueled heating appliances.

Oil and propane furnace, boiler and combination system rebates
Upgrading to condensing furnaces and boilers with high efficiency blower motors or fans can provide substantial savings.
Choosing a heating system can be a complicated decision. There are differences in fuel costs, heating system efficiencies and fuel storage requirements. Depending on which system you choose, you may have to replace an oil tank, rent propane tanks or store firewood. Switching to or increasing your electric heat may require upgrading your electrical panel or transmission line. You can use our home energy calculator to help you answer these questions. You can also call, email or stop by the Energy Solutions Centre to discuss your decision with an energy advisor.
Toilets and drain water heat recovery systems that conserve heat and/or water are eligible for rebates.
Replacing an old toilet with a WaterSense-qualified toilet can result in 20 to 60% water savings per flush. Visit the WaterSense website for more details on the standard and CMHC’s buying a water efficient toilet.
Drain water heat recovery
Drain water heat recovery systems must be NRCan-listed to qualify for a rebate. Drain water heat recovery uses hot drain water, typically from a shower, to heat the incoming cold water to the hot water tank.
