BC Hydro/Fortis attic insulation rebate increase
- Deal Link:
- $900 max
I've been looking at increasing my attic insulation from R-20/30 to R-50/60. There's a rebate from BC Hydro and Fortis. It was a maximum of $600 a couple of months ago. It's been increased to a maximum of $900 (as of 28 September).
Rebate formula remains at $0.02 x R-value increase x square footage.
I've been quoted $3,680 inc GST to increase R value from R-30 to R-60. It's about $2,000 to buy 43 bales of Owens Corning insulation from Home Depot and doing it oneself but one does have to haul 4 pallets of insulation + the machine (free to rent with purchase). That'd cost $115 for a Home Depot van whole day rental + gas, and someone who can keep loading the bales. Not to mention I (rather absurdly) need nearly 80' of hose and I'm not sure if the Owens-Corning machines have ones that long..
