Natural gas wall furnace rebate

Install a natural gas direct vent wall furnace for efficient heating in a small space, and you could be eligible for a $700 rebate. Add a water heater at the same time for an additional $400 rebate.

You can also apply for an additional rebate of $200 to $1,000 if you install an eligible natural gas high-efficiency water heater.

A wall furnace—also known as a direct vent room heater—can be added to your home’s existing heating system to reach those cold spots in your garage, basement or workshop, or provide cost-effective heating for a home where the ducts and venting required by a central heating system aren’t feasible, such as a cabin or laneway house.

Natural gas customers can choose to sign up for carbon-neutral Renewable Natural Gas, which works seamlessly with regular natural gas appliances like wall furnaces and water heaters.

Eligibility

  1. You must receive a pre-qualification code before installing your upgrades.
  2. All new natural gas direct vent wall furnaces that meet BC code requirements are eligible.
  3. This program is for existing homes only, and is not available for new construction.
  4. Only one rebate per appliance or system installed per household. 

Review all the terms and conditions.
