Rebates for Heat Pumps

2016-11-05T09:34:21-07:00November 13th, 2015|Uncategorized|0 Comments

It’s a good time to upgrade your inefficient home heating system. There are rebates currently available through the Home Energy Rebate Offer from BC Hydro, and the Oil to Heat Pump Incentive Program from Ministry of Energy and Mines.

The rebate offered by BC Hydro is $800 for qualifying air-source ductless mini-split heat pump systems installed to replace electric furnaces or baseboard heaters. The incentives from the Oil to Heat Pump program include $800 for qualifying ductless systems and $1350 for qualifying central heat pump systems installed in homes heated by oil.

If applying for an Oil to Heat Pump incentive, bear in mind that an EnerGuide home evaluation by an Energy Advisor is required, both before and after the system installation. However, there is an extra incentive to help offset the cost of the evaluation. It is also necessary to hire a contractor to deal with your oil tank.

There are additional eligibility requirements for both programs, so be sure to read the appropriate terms and conditions: Oil to Heat Pump or HERO.

Ductless, Mini-Split Heat Pump

2016-11-05T09:34:21-07:00September 2nd, 2013|Blog|0 Comments

Through advanced technology, Inverter heat pumps are more economical to operate and quieter to run than conventional units. They can handle greater extremes in temperature, are smoother and more stable in operation, and reach the desired temperature more quickly than conventional units.

The Inverter component allows the outdoor unit to vary its speed and output to match the required capacity of the indoor unit. Thus, the Inverter model can achieve 30% more operating efficiency than conventional models and therefore, is much less expensive to run.

Since mini splits have little to no ducting, they forgo those energy losses typically associated with central forced-air systems.  Duct losses can be significant, especially if the ducts are not sealed tight or in an unconditioned space such as an attic or crawlspace.
Envirotemp Refrigeration Ltd. carries a wide range of ductless split heat pump models from Daikin and Fujitsu, featuring super-efficient inverter technology. If you are looking for a professional, properly sized and configured installation, contact Envirotemp for a free estimate or call 250-893-4530.
