Who is Eligible:
This Program provides financial incentives to New Brunswick homeowners to help offset the cost of insulation and air sealing upgrades performed on their home. A home evaluation is needed to determine the levels of insulation and air leakage present in the home prior to beginning upgrades, and to determine the amount of insulation added and air leakage reductions achieved after upgrades are completed. This information is then used to determine the financial incentives for which participants are eligible.
