The heating & cooling incentive is available for residents and businesses (and businesses with residential-type systems) in Ontario who have purchased and installed* eligible replacement central heating or cooling equipment through a participating contractor.
- $250 incentive when you have an existing furnace replaced with the purchase and installation of a high-efficiency furnace equipped with an Electronically Commutated Motor (ECM).
- $250 incentive when you have an existing central air conditioner (CAC) replaced with the purchase and installation of an ENERGY STAR qualified CAC system
(NOTE: ENERGY STAR qualified criteria = minimum 14.5 SEER and 12 EER ).
- $400 incentive when you have an existing CAC replaced with the purchase and installation of a stand-alone CEE “Tier 2” level central air conditioning system
(NOTE: “Tier 2” level qualified criteria = minimum 15 SEER and 12.5 EER).
Did you know as much as 60% of your annual electricity costs goes towards heating and cooling your home? It makes sense to look for ways to reduce your usage.
*Incentives for installations of eligible equipment completed between Jan 1, 2012 and Dec. 31, 2012, must be submitted no later than Feb. 2, 2013.
