VEU activity 5 - Ducted gas heater 

VEU activity 7 - Gas room heater 

Currently gas heaters can only be upgraded to more efficient gas heaters or a room heat pump. There are changes planned to be implemented next year for upgrading gas heaters to heat pump split systems. Upgrading to more efficient gas heater will no longer be eligible after April 30, 2023. The table below compares the upgrade scenarios and estimated rebates.

What should I do

After April 30, 2023 upgrading from gas heater to another gas heater will no longer be an option. You need to complete the upgrade before that date in order to receive the rebate.
