How To Apply

 

  1. Purchase an eligible ENERGY STAR furnace or boiler and have it installed with a two-pipe direct vent system by a Technical Safety BC licensed gas contractor. You can find a contractor by searching our online directory.
  2. Complete the customer section of the rebate application in full and have your contractor complete their part, as well as the furnace commissioning sheet, if applicable. 

    You must include a photograph of the new two-pipe direct vent system (sample 1sample 2) installed in your home and a copy of your paid invoice showing details of all work performed, purchase date, make and model number, the installation permit number and the gas contractor’s Technical Safety BC licence number.

Other Requirements For High-Efficiency Furnace Rebates

Your new heating system must have two-pipe direct venting. One pipe provides directly vented outside air to the sealed combustion chamber, while the second sealed pipe directs exhaust gases outside. This system improves the efficiency and lifespan of the equipment as well as the comfort of your home. 

For more information, see our info sheet on what to look for in a high-efficiency furnace installation.
