EnerChoice Fireplace Program


​Add some warmth to the ambience

Purchase an EnerChoice fireplace between June 1, 2012 and May 31, 2013 and you may qualify for a $300 rebate from FortisBC.


What is an EnerChoice fireplace?

All fireplaces sold in Canada have an EnerGuide™ label that tells you how energy efficient it is. There is no ENERGY STAR® rating for fireplaces, so in BC, manufacturers developed the EnerChoice designation to identify the most efficient models.


When shopping for a new fireplace, look for this logo. It means that the model is among the top 25 percentile of efficiency.


To qualify for EnerChoice status hearths must have minimum efficiency ratings of:


62.4% or higher for fireplaces

61% or higher for inserts

66% or higher for free-standing stoves

Fortis BC Replacement Pilot Program


​Get $800 when you replace your old furnace (or boiler) with a qualifying high-efficiency model.  Replace your energy-wasting furnace with a high-efficiency model that's 95 per cent efficient or higher. You may qualify for an $800 rebate.  But hurry! To be eligible for the rebate you must purchase your new furnace or boiler by October 31, 2012.


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 qualify for the rebate, the model you choose must be 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. And if your furnace breaks down, repairs could cost you more in the long run.


So instead of fixing it, replace it and we’ll give you an $800 rebate and perhaps some peace of mind, knowing that your heating system is more efficient and you’ll be saving money for years to come.


Emergency replacements

The heating system must be in working order to qualify for the $800 rebate. Furnaces and boilers deemed unsafe to operate and not repairable will be considered emergency replacements and will not qualify for a rebate.

ENERGY STAR® Water Heater Program


Replace your aging water heater with a qualifying natural gas ENERGY STAR model and you could save on energy costs, plus you’ll be eligible for a rebate of up to $500.



Heating water typically takes between 20 per cent and 35 per cent of your home’s total energy use. So it makes sense to install the most efficient model you can afford. Natural gas water heater efficiency is usually measured by an energy factor (EF) rating. The higher the EF rating, the more efficient the water heater. To qualify as ENERGY STAR, gas-fired water heaters must achieve a minimum 0.67EF rating.


Keep the tank, add some savings

ENERGY STAR non-condensing storage tank models have an EF between 0.67 and 0.70 making them more efficient than standard storage tank models (typically between 0.50 and 0.62 EF) operating in many homes today. As these models aren’t as efficient as tankless and/or condensing technology, their price point is more affordable.
