No, customers who have a wood or solid fuel primary heating system can only access two bonus-eligible rebates – the air source heat pump (convert from wood) and water heater rebates. As a result, these customers are not eligible for the Home Energy Improvement Bonus, which is provided to homeowners that complete EnerGuide Rating System evaluations and install three or more bonus-eligible home energy upgrades (If you have electric heating in addition to your wood or solid fuel heat, you may be considered electrically-heated instead, check your consumption at bchydro.com/hero/eligibility).
However, 12 months following the installation of your new heat pump, your primary heating system will switch from wood (or other solid fuel) to electric. At this point in time, you will become eligible for range of new offers available to customers with electric primary heating systems, which will include the Home Energy Improvement Bonus.
