WOOD-STOVE CHANGEOUT PROGRAM
THE 2019 WOOD-STOVE CHANGE-OUT PROGRAM IS NOW ACTIVE. COMBINED REBATES OF UP TO $700 ARE AVAILABLE ON A FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED BASIS UNTIL REBATE FUNDS RUN OUT.
How to Receive Your Rebate
Receive A $250 Rebate For Changing To A Cleaner Burning Wood Stove- CSA B415.1 or EPA Approved
Or A $400 Rebate For Changing To A Natural Gas, Propane Or Pellet Stove- A Natural Gas Fireplace Can Get An Additional $300 Fortis Rebate If Eligible- See Natural Gas Fireplaces Under Rebates Tab
Step 1 - Qualify
You must have an existing wood burning appliance (or a non-EPA insert installed in an open hearth fireplace) that does not conform to CSA B415.1 standards (typically an appliance built and installed before 1994).
Appliances eligible for the rebate:
Appliances NOT eligible for the rebate:
Step 2 - Contact Us
Contact Sebco Gas to seek advice on the type of low-emission heating appliance to purchase. Upon purchase of your new appliance you will be given a rebate voucher. This form will need to be signed by us at the time of sale and installation, and by the Nanaimo Recycling Exchange staff or RDN landfill or transfer station staff when the old unit is sent in for recycling. Be aware that most insurance companies require notification if you are installing a new heating appliance. The value of the rebates cannot exceed the value of the appliance.
Are you a resident of the RDN? Visit the Regional District of Nanaimo for information on a program in your area.
Step 3 - Disposal
Your old stove must be taken to one of the authorized disposal locations to be recycled (whether by you or the installer). Upon disposal, your voucher will be signed OR you will be given a receipt, which will provide proof of destruction. This receipt should be attached to your signed rebate voucher.
Step 4 - Form Drop Off
Drop off your completed rebate form and the before and after images of the woodstove to the front counter at 411 Dunsmuir Street (Service and Resource Centre).
