$800 Furnace Replacement Rebate Program

These are details for the Fortis $800 rebate program. These are copied from the Fortis website. Call PJB Plumbing + Heating and we’ll help you get started.

 


Get $800 when you replace your old furnace (or boiler) with an eligible ENERGY STAR® model

Is your old furnace guilty of stealing your energy? Then convict your energy offender and replace it with an eligible ENERGY STAR model that’s 95 per cent efficient or higher. You could receive an $800 rebate.

Eligibility Requirements

  • You must be a FortisBC residential natural gas customer.
  • Your existing furnace or boiler must be a minimum of 10 years old and not require repairs in excess of $1,000 (pre-tax).
  • You must install an eligible ENERGY STAR or equivalent furnace or boiler.
  • Before applying for your rebate, you must have a valid pre-qualification code. Codes are only available until August 31, 2016, or while quantities last.
  • Furnaces and boilers must be purchased, installed and paid for in full between June 30, 2016 and October 31, 2016.

See the complete list of requirements under the terms and conditions.

What makes a furnace or boiler high-efficiency?

Today’s high-efficiency natural gas furnaces and boilers are up to 98 per cent efficient. To be eligible for the rebate, the model you choose must be ENERGY STAR rated and at least 95 per cent efficient for furnaces and 94 per cent efficient for boilers.

Why replace your old furnace or boiler?  

Just because something works, doesn’t mean it’s working efficiently. So convict it and put it away for life. You could get an $800 rebate and perhaps some peace of mind, knowing that your new heating system is more efficient and you’ll be saving money and energy for years to come.

Emergency replacements and repairs

Your old heating system must be in working order to qualify for the $800 rebate. Furnaces and boilers deemed unsafe to operate and not repairable, or requiring repairs over $1,000 in pre-tax dollars (including parts and labour), do not qualify for a rebate.
