Ottawa Wood Burning Changeout Program
HPBCA recognizes the financial support from the City of Ottawa.
The Ontario Government is offering the Ontario Home Energy Conservation Incentive Program, delivered by Enbridge Gas Distribution and Union Gas in partnership with the Government of Ontario and Save On Energy. This program is offered to Ontario homeowners who use natural gas, propane, oil, wood or electricity as the primary source of heating in their homes.
The two delivery agents offer slightly different programs within their existing territories. Find out which delivery agent’s jurisdiction you are within by entering your postal code on their website.
Efficiency Nova Scotia is offering rebates and financing to help you switch from electric water heating to a wood stove – and start saving money! Wood heat can save you money compared to electric heat. And you’re using a sustainable fuel source, made in Nova Scotia – so heating dollars stay closer to home. Good for your wallet, good for the environment.
This program offers rebates directly through an application for a Green Heat rebate or allows homeowners to bundle rebates with a Home Energy Assessment.
The Provincial Wood Stove Exchange Program changes out old, smoky wood stoves for cleaner heating options including heat pumps, gas or pellet stoves and cleaner burning wood stoves.
Well over 7000 wood burning stoves have been replaced by cleaner burning models since the program began. This is a reduction of approximately 400 tonnes annually of particulate matter released into the air. Since 2008, 29 programs have been offered in the province, involving 20 regional districts and over 45 municipal partners.
The program is offered in communities around the province. It provides funding to promote the exchange and offers incentives to replace old wood stoves. It also delivers education to help people operate their wood-burning appliances efficiently.
The Changez d’Air program in Quebec ran in 450 cities through 2012 and 2013.
More than 4500 old woodburning appliances have been replaced:
- 81% changed for woodburning devices
- 13% changed for gas devices
- 6% changed for woodpellet devices
