Must upgrade a minimum of 20% of total wall area.  The rebate is pro-rated based on the percentage of wall area insulated and does not include walls between individual units.  For a semi-detached, rebates are 75% of the amounts shown.

When both a basement and crawl space are present, all applicable rebates are pro-rated to a maximum of $1,000 based on the total combined wall area of basement and crawl space.  For example, if your total foundation area is 40% crawl space and 60% basement, and you add at least R23 to 100% of the crawl space area, but 0% of the basement area, then you would qualify for a $320 rebate (40% x $800 = $320).
