Quebec residents can get cash back for renovations

(NC) Quebec's new EcoRenov tax credit is a great opportunity for homeowners to get a little cash back on their renovation projects. Don't delay, this 'go green' tax credit is temporary and applies only to home renos from now until November 1, 2014.

At the top of the list of recognized eco-friendly renovations is the insulation of the roof, exterior walls, foundations and exposed floors – all spots in a house that can be sources of energy loss. But not all insulations are created equal and the EcoRenov program requires using products with low levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and those that are certified Greenguard or an EcoLogo environmental choice.

Retailers suggest a mineral wool insulation (such as Roxul ComfortBatt and Safe n' Sound insulation) which meet all the criteria for the tax credit program. The management at Roxul says this insulation is easily available, and not only will it Roxul insulation will not only help earn you some money back when taking on a home renovation, but it will also ensure your home stays warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
