Get Pumped! Make the switch to an energy efficient Heat Pump

Category: News
on 11 September 2017





Heat pumps are an exciting new technology that offers green heating options for your home energy needs. Heat pumps extract heat from outside (even on the coldest days) and pump it throughout your home. During warmer months, heat pumps work in reverse to keep your home cool.

Available Incentives

The Province has launched its Green Ontario Fund, a new not-for-profit provincial agency that will deliver programs and rebates to help reduce energy costs in homes and businesses across Ontario. The agency is part of Ontario's Climate Change Action Plan and is funded by proceeds from the province's cap on pollution and carbon market. Residents can access all potential incentives from local utilities and municipal programs by entering their postal code. The program is also available for small and large businesses.

Testimonials

Read how some citizens of Burlington have successfully made the switch and are reaping the benefits of heat pumps.


“I had my heat pump installed in 2010 as part of my home reno. The green features in my house have resulted in heating / cooling energy about 90% less than surrounding homes, and the carbon emissions are also as low. With no humidifier or dehumidifier, the humidity stays within the ideal range all year long. No shocks at light switches or dry skin in the winter. Temperatures are equal throughout the home.” Jim Feilders, Burlington resident.
