Cool Savings Rebate Program

Province/Territory: Ontario

Rebate Amount: Up $550 in rebates


With 60% of your yearly electricity bill going toward heating and cooling your home, it makes good sense to look for ways to reduce your usage and your bills. Get up to $550 in rebates for replacing your heating and/or cooling system with more efficient models.

Rebates are available for residents and businesses (with residential-type systems) of Ontario who purchase and install their new central heating or cooling equipment through a participating contractor.

  • $25 rebate when you replace your old non-programmable thermostat with one that is programmable and have it purchased and installed by a participating contractor.
  • $125 rebate when you have an existing furnace replaced with the purchase and installation of a mid or high-efficiency furnace with an Electronically Commutated Motor (ECM).
  • $250 rebate when you have an existing central air conditioner (CAC) replaced with the purchase and installation of an ENERGY STAR qualified CAC system, heat pump or ductless split system (NOTE: ENERGY STAR qualified criteria = minimum 14.5 SEER and 12 EER ).
  • $400 rebate when you have an existing CAC replaced with the purchase and installation of a stand-alone CEE “Tier 2” level central air conditioning system or ground source heat pump.

(NOTE: “Tier 2” level qualified criteria = minimum 15 SEER and 12.5 EER ).

    Hello Florence –

    Based on the work you’ve done, I would say you definitely qualify for a rebate. However, you would have needed to do a pre-renovation home energy audit.

    Please see information on the ecoENERGY Home Retrofit program.

    We replaced our electric heating system with a high efficiency propane furnace, do we qualify for the rebate even though our licensed contractor is not a member of the program?

  5. alex says

    We had our new furnace and air conditioner installed weeks ago and have since sent in our paper work. Our paper work was approved on April 21st, 2011. We were to receive our rebate within six weeks. Now I’ve called and am told due to back logs I am not to expect it less than 12 weeks from the approval date. Has anyone else been lied to about the amount of time to receive the rebate? Also, i read above that a themostate qualifies for $50.00 but was told by by installer that it does not.
