Did you know that homeowners in BC may be eligible for monetary rebates by investing in certain upgrades to their home’s HVAC system or equipment? BC Hydro, FortisBC, and CleanBC have a Home Renovation Rebate Program that can put money back into your pocket. All you have to do is update your outdated or fossil fuel-powered heating and cooling system to a newer, greener, and more energy-efficient HVAC system that’s program-eligible.
For example, by upgrading an electric or fossil fuel heating system to a heat pump, you could potentially receive up to $11,000 in rebates:
- $5,000 from the Canada Greener Homes Grant
- $6,000 from BC Hydro
- Additional rebate top ups for the City of Vancouver, North Vancouver and West Vancouver.
Is your home currently heated by propane, electricity, oil, or natural gas? If so, you should consider switching to an electric heat pump system. As long as you install eligible equipment, you could receive up to $11,000 in combined rebates! FortisBC also offers homeowners the opportunity to gain a rebate of up to $1,000 just by upgrading their natural gas furnace to an eligible model that’s ENERGY STAR® certified. Then, top it off with another $150 rebate by installing an eligible thermostat.
