St. Catharines residents who are considering switching to a cleaner, more energy efficient heating system now have a financial incentive to make the switch.
Enbridge Gas, in partnership with the Government of Ontario, offers incentives to homeowners in St. Catharines, Sault Ste. Marie, Peterborough and London as part of the new Clean Home Heating initiative.
Eligible customers will receive incentives of approximately $3,000 to $4,500 to install an air source heat pump unit with smart controls.
A number of Ontario HVAC companies are participating in the new initiative. That includes Mr. Furness, a Niagara-area company based in St. Catharines that handles HVAC, plumbing and more services.
The air source heat pump is a hybrid heating system, seamlessly switching between electric heat and natural gas to heat as efficiently as possible.
Why switch to a hybrid heating system?
That’s logical: Intelligent controls automatically switch between natural gas and electric heat depending on which is more efficient at any given time. A heat pump efficiently heats the home when it’s cold outside, while also keeping it nice and cool during the hotter months.
It is cost effective: Efficient heating is not only comfortable, but it also reduces energy costs, saving the homeowner money in the long run.
It is environmentally friendly: The hybrid system reduces greenhouse gas emissions by up to 30%, which is vital as we aim to reduce emissions and combat climate change.
And, of course, those who make the switch may be eligible for a financial stimulus from $3,000 to $4,500.
You qualify for the financial stimulus if:
- Have a home in St. Catharines, Peterborough, Sault Ste. Marie O London, Ontario.
- You are a residential customer of Enbridge Gas and are on time-of-use electricity rates.
- Your home is heated with a natural gas oven.
- You have a central air conditioner or are looking to replace or add a new air conditioner. Even if you don’t have air conditioning, you may still qualify.
- Your home has Wi-Fi for your smart controls to access.
Located in St. Catharines and eligible? Then be sure to contact Mr Furness and they will handle the whole process for you – everything from installing your Air Source Heat Pump to submitting a discount application to Enbridge Gas for you.
You will receive an incentive of approximately $3,000 to $4,500 (depending on the type of air source heat pump unit) within 6 to 10 weeks after submitting your rebate application.
