There are multiple efficiency rebates and loans available to help make your home more efficient and save money on your energy bills. How do you know which you might be eligible for or even where to start?  

Step 1

Call or email Ben for a free consultation. Sauve Heating & Air Conditioning will help make sure you’re enrolled in the right program(s) so you can start saving as early as this summer. 

Step 2

Sign up for a preliminary EnerGuide evaluation of your home before starting any efficiency upgrades. There is a charge for this evaluation, but a significant portion ($600) can be covered depending on the rebate program.
