Home Energy Retrofit Accelerator
Edmonton’s Home Energy Retrofit Accelerator (HERA Program) is a program that helps you understand your home’s energy efficiency and provides rebates for upgrades. Water and space heating equipment are both eligible for rebates with bonuses available for bigger renovations.
Household energy use is a big deal. Most homes produce greenhouse gas emissions directly through natural gas powered furnaces and indirectly by consuming electricity. Within Edmonton, the residential sector produces almost 20% of greenhouse gas emissions every year. The choices you make in your home result in carbon emissions and affect your household contributions to climate change.
This program helps homeowners take meaningful climate action by reducing their home’s emissions. Luckily, making energy efficiency upgrades to your home is not only good for the environment, it is also good for the economy and your well-being.
A climate-ready, energy efficient home has been proven to be healthier and more comfortable. For example:
- Better insulation and better air sealing means fewer hot spots, cold spots and drafts
- Triple-pane windows keep out the heat in the summer and the cold in the winter, resulting in less need for heating or air conditioning
- Newer heating systems use less energy and run more quietly
- A properly insulated foundation means warmer basement floors
- Proper air flow reduces mold problems
EnerGuide Home Energy Evaluations are valuable for homebuyers and sellers as well. Not only does it allow them to compare energy efficiency between homes and make better decisions, it also provides a renovation roadmap for what improvements the home needs to become more energy efficient.

What Our Customers Say About Us
"The guys were very friendly. They took lots of care and attention when removing the old furnace and replacing it with the new one to not damage anything along the way. Once finished they took the time to explain the operation and go through any questions we had. I would definitely use them again."
- Kyle J.
"This review is for Noel who came to my home to see why our electric air cleaner was not working. He was punctual and super friendly. Found the problem within 15 minutes. Had the part ordered, and 9 days later it literally only took him 3 minutes to replace it for us!"
- Joy H.
"Booking an appointment for a furnace checkup was a very quick and simple phone call. The technician was on time as promised, very knowledgeable and professional. It gave us piece of mind that our 10 year old furnace was in good working order."
