This rebate is for the installation of a qualifying heat-recovery ventilator in an existing residence. A residence that is 5 years or older is considered an existing residence.
The heat-recovery ventilator (HRV) must:
- be listed with the Home Ventilating Institute; and
- have a 64 per cent or higher sensible recovery efficiency at -25° Celsius.
- $750 for HRV; and
- $750 if you’re installing ducting for the HRV.
You can get up to a maximum of $1,500 per building.
If you’ve applied for the Better Buildings program, the rebate may apply to the program funding.
Note: We’ve recently increased the value of the HRV rebate. If you received a rebate for an HRV installation completed on or after October 14, 2021, contact the Energy Branch to discuss if you qualify for a higher amount. Phone 867-393-7063 or email email@example.com.

Get low-cost funding for qualifying energy upgrades
The Better Buildings program offers low-cost funding to homeowners who complete qualifying energy upgrades to residential buildings.
The funding amount is based on 25 per cent of the property’s assessed value, up to a maximum of $50,000. Homeowners pay back the funding through a local improvement tax.
Get a rebate for air sealing your home
You can get $5,000 to air seal your home. Part of this includes installing an HRV to ensure a balanced ventilation in your home.
Benefits of heat recovery ventilators
Insulating or air sealing a home may introduce ventilation issues:
- indoor air-quality issues;
- moisture and mould issues; or
- higher potential for carbon monoxide to enter your home.
An HRV mitigates these issues by:
- bringing fresh air into your home; and
- taking stale air out of your home.
