Winter rules for broken furnaces
Home Energy Conservation Program (HEC)
As the cold weather approaches, reliable heating for your home is an important necessity for you and your family. As part of the Home Energy Conservation Program (HEC), the replacement of a broken or outdated furnace counts as an eligible upgrade which could qualify you for energy audit discounts and a $1,600 rebate.
Replacing an ageing furnace with high efficiency equipment is an effective way to reduce energy usage in your home. In addition to examining your current heating equipment, our home energy experts will complete a thorough energy assessment of your home and find areas where you can increase energy efficiency. Higher efficiency means a reduction in energy usage and lowering your energy bills.
A broken or red-tagged furnace in the wintertime can be a worrisome experience. Your first priority is restoring heat to your home which is why new energy assessment rules have been put in place. Energy assessments under the HEC program may now be completed up to three weeks after an emergency furnace replacement. Contact the Windfall Ecology Centre or your Energy Advisor within three days of the furnace replacement to be eligible for the extension.
