What is a heat pump?

A heat pump is an efficient heating and cooling system that uses electricity to move heat from one place to another. In the winter, a heat pump captures heat from the outside air and transfers it indoors. In the summer, it operates in reverse and transfers heat from inside your home to the outdoors.

To find out if a heat pump is the right fit for your home, sign up for a free homeowner information webinar (12 to 1 pm on May 22, 2024).

Eight stages of the heat pump retrofit journey

Starting your heat pump retrofit journey involves several key stages. Here's a guide to help you navigate through the process:

  1. Do your homework: do some research to learn the basics about heat pumps and energy efficiency
  2. Make a plan: understand what you currently have for home heating and what you want of a heat pump
  3. Get help: book a free Virtual Home Energy Consultation to get answers and support from a local energy expert
  4. Review support programs: check program websites to identify rebates or financing you may be eligible for
  5. Reach out to contractors: find local contractors through the CleanBC search tool and get at least three quotes
  6. Select a contractor: pick a contractor who can provide the system you want within your budget
  7. Schedule your installation: time to let professionals get to work! Make sure your contractor applies for a permit before installation begins
  8. Enjoy: Learn about your new system; submit your rebate applications; and enjoy your comfortable, green home
