Home renovation

We called Barrier Sciences Group after recently purchasIng a 1970s bungalow. We planed a renovation and wanted advice as to where to maximize the benefits, We insulated, added a furnace and windows and now have a cosy, warm home and we were smoothly guided through the rebate process by David Miller. Thank you for all of your help.

furnace, tankless hot water, insulation

Typical ontario liberal government. They charge you the highest rates for electricity in north america then put out some program to allow you to switch over from electric hot water tank to natural gas. They give you minimal amount of money to do the upgrades, basically covers like a quarter of the price. Wait time to get your money back is outrageous.

Thank you for taking the time to review our company! We are truly sorry that your experience with the Union Gas Home Reno Rebate Program wasn't a positive one. Unfortunately, Barrier Sciences Group doesn't establish the rebates; those amounts are predetermined for us. We appreciate your honesty and take your feedback very seriously. We use these comments as an opportunity to improve going forward. We do hope that you get in touch with us if you have any additional comments about the services we provided. Thanks again for taking the time to review Barrier Sciences Group!

Updating my Gas Furnace and Gas Water Heater

I was having my annual furnace service and the tech noticed an expensive repair. The furnace was 20 yr. old. So time for a new one. I was made aware of the rebates if I updated more than one item from the govt. and Union Gas. He recommended Barrier Sciences for the required audit. I contacted them and they did their work on time, pleasantly and effectively. They gave me the options and rebates available to me.
The most effective update for me was a water heater upgrade and repairs to a few air leaks. Doing the work above gave me $ 2250 in rebates.
So as a result I have a new furnace almost free and a better cost for my water heater than the rental from Reliance Home Comfort.

Thanks Barrier Sciences

Energy audit

I needed an energy audit on my house for government rebates for my new furnace. The technician came in and offered lots of easy and affordable ways to improve my homes energy efficiency. He was here exactly when he said he would be, and worked very quickly and efficiently. He was extremely polite and considerate while inspecting my home. I couldn't be happier.

Energy Audit

The home auditor, David Miller, did a great job explaining the Union Gas Rebate program to us. We ended up doing 3 home improvements to take advance of the rebate program. Dave took care of all the paperwork. He made suggestions throughout our home audit; and was a great source of information. His schedule was also flexible. Thanks.
