Heat Pump Financing Program

Is your house heated by fossil fuel?

You may be eligible for 0% interest financing to replace your fossil fuel air space heating system with an electric heat pump.

Looking to improve home comfort? Our program enables Central Saanich homeowners to fund up to $12,000 of the cost of getting off fossil fuel heating through an interest-free loan repaid on property tax bills over 10 years. Plus, you can take advantage of other rebates available right now.

Converting from your home that is primarily heated by oil, propane or a natural gas furnace or boiler to an electric heat pump helps our community reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and introduces cooling power in the face of longer, hotter summers!

Interested?  Check if you are eligible and sign up today!  Limited spaces are available for this pilot program.
