  • All invoices must be dated on or before December 31, 2023.
  • You have up to 12 months from the invoice date to submit your rebate application (December 31, 2024, at the latest).

  2. The furnace must be replacing an existing gas primary space heating system that's a minimum of 10 years old. Emergency replacements of space heating systems that are not in working order or deemed unsafe to operate by a licensed gas contractor are not eligible for rebates.
  3. You must have installed an eligible ENERGY STAR certified furnace with a two-pipe direct vent system, as verified by a photograph included with your application.
  4. Connected thermostats must have been installed by your licensed contractor at the same time as the new qualifying furnace installation.

Other requirements for high-efficiency commercial furnace rebates

Your new heating system must have two-pipe direct venting. One pipe provides directly vented outside air to the sealed combustion chamber, while the second sealed pipe directs exhaust gases outside. This system improves the efficiency and lifespan of the equipment as well as the comfort of your building. 

How to apply

  1. Ensure the gas furnace you've purchased is ENERGY STAR certified and was installed with a two-pipe direct vent system by a Technical Safety BC licensed gas contractor.
  2. Work with your contractor to complete, in full, the furnace rebate application.
  3. You must include a clear, legible copy of your fully paid invoice showing the following:
    • details of all work performed
    • invoice date (no later than December 31, 2023)
    • quantity, make and model number of eligible furnace(s) purchased and installed
    • installation permit number
    • gas contractor’s Technical Safety BC licence number
    • any other required information for your application

    The new furnace must undergo commissioning to ensure it's installed and operating according to best practice. A copy of the completed commissioning sheet must be made available upon request.

Help improve our programs

As we work to continuously improve our programs, we will be asking some applicants to provide us with access to their building or facility to verify the installation and operation of the new furnace. This work is carried out by a third-party contractor. Staff will always call in advance to book a site visit appointment with you.
