Fortis BC encourages homeowners to replace or install boilers and furnaces that are much more energy efficient. They do this by way of offering rebates to qualified homeowners on everything from furnaces to boilers with certain restrictions. The rebate programs save homeowners money on their energy bills and we all benefit with systems that use less energy. When you replace that aging furnace (or boiler) with any eligible furnace that is 95% efficient or higher (94% for boilers) you could receive an $800 rebate.
- You must be a Fortis residential natural gas customer
