Natural gas wall furnace rebate

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.

Eligibility

  2. This program is for existing homes only and is not available for new construction.
