Specific Heat Pump Systems are eligible for rebates through the Canada Greener Homes Grant.

A Reliance Home Comfort Advisor will visit your home to help you choose the best heat pump solution for your house and budget that is eligible for the grant. We are stocked up on eligible equipment and know all the requirements, so you donā€™t have to worry about whether your heat pump system will qualify or not.

Help reduce your carbon footprint and avoid the stress of applying for the grant on your own.

To make this as seamless as possible for you, weā€™ve partnered with Energuy, who will provide the required NRCan EnerGuide energy audits and help you fill out the online application for the Canada Greener Homes Grant. If you have an energy audit provider you prefer, that is no problem! Once you have selected your heat pump equipment, our Home Comfort Advisor will connect you with Energuy, and you will book your appointment with them. Energuy will perform the pre-installation energy audit and start the online application process with you. They will return after the equipment installation for the post-installation inspection and help you complete your online application. You will pay Energuy separately for your audits, but up to $600 is eligible to be covered by grant money. Your cheque should arrive from the government between four and six months after the whole process is complete.

How does a heat pump work?

An electric heat pump is just like an air conditioner, but it has the bonus feature of running in reverse on colder days to transfer heat inside your home instead of helping to remove it. This 2-in-1 system replaces your AC during the summer. It helps reduce your reliance on a traditional furnace during the colder spring and fall days, helping to reduce CO2 emissions and having the potential to lower your energy bill.
