About eight weeks ago we received a (very reasonable) quote for honeycomb blinds from a largish Canberran blind and curtain company. The blinds were installed yesterday and they look fabulous … no complaints there.
I got a bit excited when the installation dude mentioned that we can apply for a government rebate of up to $500.00 for installing such highly effective (insulated) window fittings. It wasn’t until I checked the rebate site that I realised that to claim, we needed to have a $30.00 energy audit conducted – prior to installation. Buggar.
I guess it pays to check these things out before proceeding with any household improvements … but I do wonder why the said curtain company chose not to mention this rebate during the consultation and quoting phase? Anyway – advice to Rioters – it always pays to check what government rebates are available … and as an aside, honeycomb blinds are the best!
