Natural gas wall furnace rebate

A natural gas wall furnace along the side of a living room wall (18-150.12)

Up to $1,600 in rebates available when you pre-qualify for the Wall Furnace Program before March 31, 2024.

Install a direct vent natural gas wall furnace for efficient heating in a small space, and you could be eligible for a rebate of $700 + $500 bonus for a limited time. Add a natural gas water heater at the same time for an additional $400 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.

Natural gas customers can choose to sign up for Renewable Natural Gas,1 which works seamlessly with regular natural gas appliances like wall furnaces and water heaters.

It is derived from biogas, which is produced from decomposing organic waste from landfills, agricultural waste and wastewater from treatment facilities. The biogas is captured and cleaned to create Renewable Natural Gas.
