BC Questions

Does my existing fuel type affect my rebate?

Yes, unlike the federal grant program your existing fuel type impacts your provincial rebate amount. The maximum rebate is applied when converting from natural gas to a full electric heat pump.

Are there additional municipal incentives?

Yes, depending on where you live you may be eligible for an additional $6,000 when installing a heat pump.

See what top-ups are available in your area here.

Are there requirements for choosing a contractor?

Yes, for the provincial heat pump rebates you will need to use a Home Performance Contractor Network (HPCN) member. You can review the full list here.

Does the provincial government offer financing?

Affordable loans for renovations through the CleanBC Better Homes Low-Interest Financing Program. If you take advantage of the financing program you will no longer be eligible for the provincial heat pump rebate.

If you choose to pursue the federal Greener Homes Loan, you will still be able to take advantage of provincial heat pump rebates.

No, you will be qualified for the same rebate amount regardless of your existing fuel type.

If I have a secondary suite am I still eligible?

Can I have a furnace as a back up system?

Yes, dual-fuel systems are eligible for rebates. However, you must confirm that all components of the dual-fuel system are rated and tested together. We are happy to review system information to check eligibility before you have them installed.
