How Do I Apply?
- Book a pre-retrofit evaluation. Contact a licensed SEGH service organization to book a pre-retrofit
evaluation. A pre-retrofit evaluation must be completed to qualify for a provincial grant. The last
day to have a pre-retrofit evaluation completed is June 30th, 2013. There is a cost for the
evaluation, please discuss the evaluation costs with the service organization at the time of booking, including
mileage if applicable. The Province of Saskatchewan pays for ½ the cost of the pre-retrofit evaluation, up to
$150, to reduce the upfront cost to homeowners. The service organization will only charge you the difference.
- Evaluation & review the results. An energy advisor will come to your house and perform an energy
evaluation, consisting of a basement to attic review of your home and a blower door test to measure air
tightness and help locate air leakage. You will receive a homeowner report approximately two weeks after your
evaluation with a list of recommended measures, eligible grant amounts, and an EnerGuide rating label specific
to your home.
- Complete your retrofits. You have 18 months from the date of your pre-retrofit evaluation or until
October 31st, 2013, whichever comes first, to complete your retrofits and have your post-retrofit
evaluation completed. You can complete any or all of the recommendations outlined in the homeowner report.
- Book a post-retrofit evaluation. A post-retrofit evaluation must be completed to qualify for a grant. Book an evaluation with the same
SEGH service organization that completed your initial evaluation prior to the 18 month deadline or
October 31st, 2013, whichever comes first. Make sure to call your Service Organization early to book a
post-retrofit evaluation to ensure they can schedule your appointment prior to the deadline. Be sure
to have your SEGH file number available when you call (it is located on your homeowner report).
An energy advisor will come to your house and perform a new energy evaluation, reviewing the changes you made
and will retest your home using the blower door test to measure air tightness after your retrofits. You will
receive a new EnerGuide rating label that reflects the improvements that you made to the overall efficiency of
The Province of Saskatchewan also pays for ½ the cost of the post-retrofit evaluation, up to $100,
to reduce the cost to homeowners. The service organization will only charge you the difference.
- Receive your grant. After your post-retrofit evaluation your service organization will submit your file.
You do not need to do anything else. A grant cheque will be mailed to you within 90 days.
Note: Your energy advisor is required to take pictures of your home and specific equipment during
the pre- and post-retrofit evaluations. You need to retain all of your receipts for retrofits completed and
they must be available at the post-retrofit evaluation.
