Houses built 20 years ago possibly don’t have sufficient insulation. Insulation can save you energy and money. Much more, it can add to the comfort of your homes.
You may insulate your attics, walls and even the foundation. Wall insulation may be bulk or injected, and foundation insulation has various methods. Attic insulation, on the other hand, can be roll-on, blown-in or spray foam.
Residents of Winnipeg, Manitoba or across the region can avail of the Manitoba Hydro Insulation Program. You must have an active account at Manitoba Hydro and have met the qualifications, then it is good.
What are the insulation programs offered by Manitoba Hydro? How will you benefit from those programs?
Manitoba Hydro Insulation Program
Manitoba Hydro’s services include a Power Smart Insulation Program. It offers rebates for the insulation installation and upgrades of your homes.
Your own home will qualify if it is built 20 years ago with established water supply. Your home may not be eligible if it has an on-going renovation or not occupied. Commercial and industrial buildings are not included.
You will receive your rebate eight weeks after the completion of the project.
The Process for Manitoba Hydro Insulation Programs
Upon qualifying for the program, immediately identify the part of your home that needs insulation. It may be the foundation, just the attics or the walls. Then decide if you will do it yourself and contact a retailer or hire a contractor.
Your contractor will complete and submit your application, and inform you of project approval. See to it that your contractors comply all the necessary permits before starting the insulation. They must also follow the Manitoba Building Code.
On the completion of the project, your contractor submits all the relevant papers to Manitoba Hydro. There are instances when your project will be selected for audit before approval or after the issuance of rebates.
