The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) is offering a rebates to eligible residents who remove their 5+ year old wood-burning appliance used for home heating and replace it with a high efficiency gas, pellet or propane stove/insert, or an electric heat pump.
$2500 top up!
For homes in West Courtenay and Cumberland (two areas with a lot of documented wood smoke), the $700 regular rebate for switching to a heat pump has been bumped up with an extra $2500. These great rebates are limited in number (total of 14) and there is no guarantee they will be available again.
It is a great opportunity to make the switch to easier, cleaner home heating (with an added bonus of air conditioning).
