Your insulation is a major line of defense against your home losing energy. If your home has out-dated insulation, an insulation upgrade is a very practical and cost-effective way to make your house more efficient. Not only will this improve your family’s comfort and lessen your impact on the environment, it will also result in reduced energy expenses and increased property value.
In fact, Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value report for 2017 showed that updating your attic insulation has a 107 per cent return on investment! They estimate that if you spent approximately $1300 on an attic insulation upgrade, your home’s value will increase over $1440. Combine that increased resale value with added energy savings and you’ll see the cost benefit to this smart home upgrade.

Rebates Available to BC Homeowners

The amount of your rebate depends on where the insulation is installed, the total area in square feet of the new insulation added and how well the insulation keeps in the heat.
