You could get thousands of dollars for switching to better heating in St. Catharines

St. Catharines residents who are thinking of 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, is offering 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 for installing an air-source heat pump unit with smart controls.
A number of HVAC companies in Ontario are participating in the new initiative. That includes Mr. Furnace, a Niagara-area company based in St. Catharines that handles heating, ventilation, air conditioning, plumbing and more services.
An air-source heat pump is a hybrid heating system, switching seamlessly between electric heat and natural gas to heat as efficiently as possible.
Why switch to a hybrid heating system?
It’s convenient: The smart controls automatically switch between natural gas and electric heat depending on which is more efficient at any given time. The heat pump efficiently warms up the home when it’s cold outside, while also keeping it nice and cool during hotter months.
It’s cost-effective: Efficient heating is not only convenient, it also cuts down on energy costs, saving the homeowner money in the long run.
It’s eco-friendly: A hybrid system reduces greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 30%, which is vital as we aim to reduce emissions and fight climate change.
And of course, those who make the switch may be eligible for a financial incentive of $3,000 to $4,500.
You’re eligible for the financial incentive if:
- You own a home in St. Catharines, Peterborough, Sault Ste. Marie or London, Ontario.
- You’re an Enbridge Gas residential customer and on time-of-use electricity rates.
- Your home is heated with a condensing natural gas furnace.
- You have a central air conditioner or are looking to replace or add a new air conditioner. Even if you don’t have AC, you may still be eligible.
- Your home has Wi-Fi for the smart controls to access.
Located in St. Catharines and eligible? Then be sure to contact Mr. Furnace and they’ll handle the whole process for you – everything from installing the air-source heat pump to submitting a rebate application to Enbridge Gas on your behalf.
You’ll receive the incentive of approximately $3,000 to $4,500 (depending on the type of air-source heat pump unit installed) within 6 to 10 weeks after the rebate application is submitted.
