REBATE – $800 DUCTLESS HEAT PUMP – BC Hydro

$800 Rebate

Through BC Hydro

If you’re looking to upgrade your electric heating system, a heat pump can be more efficient than a traditional electric furnace or baseboard heater. Unlike other heating and cooling systems, which convert fuel or electricity directly into heat, a heat pump moves heat from one place to another, in the same way as an air conditioner.

How to Apply:

  1. Review the terms and conditions [PDF, 194 KB].
  2. Find a qualifying heat pump model.
  3. Install your new heat pump.
  4. Complete the necessary application form(s):
    • Do you own the home and have the BC Hydro account in your name? Complete the homeowner application form [PDF, 1 MB].
    • Are you a landlord making upgrades to your rental property? Complete the landlord/tenant application form [PDF, 1.0 MB]. If you don’t pay the BC Hydro bill for the property, have the tenant complete Form B: Tenant consent form [PDF, 723 KB] and submit to the address below (separately from your application form).
  5. Include a copy of your invoice(s) showing details of all work performed, including the purchase date, make, model and installation permit numbers (if applicable) with your application and send to BC Hydro.
