Alberta is known for its diverse weather, even experiencing severe temperature swings daily! That’s why Alberta homes require efficient and reliable heating solutions.

With increasing awareness about environmental conservation, homeowners in Alberta are shifting towards eco-friendly, high-efficiency furnace options.

This blog delves into the sustainable heating solutions available in Alberta, their benefits, types, and how they contribute to a greener future.

Why Choose An Eco-Friendly Furnace?

High-efficiency furnaces save energy by operating with less heat waste than conventional furnaces. And new heating technology and components make this possible. Further benefits include:

Environmental Impact

Traditional heating systems often rely on fossil fuel options, which in large quantities can contribute to greenhouse gas emissions. Eco-friendly furnaces, on the other hand, utilize renewable or more efficient energy sources such as electricity, significantly reducing carbon footprints.


While the initial investment in high-efficiency heating systems may be higher, they offer long-term savings through lower energy bills and potential government incentives for sustainable upgrades.

Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) measures how much heat a furnace can create from the fuel being consumed. High-efficiency furnaces have an AFUE of at least 90% and sometimes as high as 98.5%!

Traditional furnaces can have an AFUE rating as low as 80%. Because of this difference in fuel-burning efficiency, a new high-efficiency furnace can save you over 12% on your energy bill!

Enhanced Indoor Air Quality

Eco-friendly furnaces often come with advanced filtration systems, ensuring better indoor air quality, which is crucial in Alberta’s closed-environment winters.

Types of Eco-Friendly Furnaces Available in Alberta

Electric Furnaces

Electric furnaces are a popular choice in areas where electricity is generated from renewable sources. Alberta’s growing investment in renewable energy makes electric furnaces a viable eco-friendly option.

High-Efficiency Gas Furnaces

For those not ready to fully transition away from fossil fuels, high-efficiency gas furnaces offer a more eco-friendly alternative to traditional gas heating. They utilize fuel more efficiently, reducing waste and emissions. And they’re more cost-effective than their electric counterparts.

Incentives and Rebates

The Alberta government and various local entities offer incentives and rebates for homeowners that install eco-friendly heating systems. These can significantly offset the initial investment costs. Here are some examples:

The City of Calgary’s Clean Energy Improvement Program (CEIP) offers flexible financing to residential property owners to help with the upfront costs of energy efficiency and renewable energy upgrades. The next round of applications opens this spring, so keep an eye out!

The Government of Alberta also offers a number of rebates for power and natural gas usage.

Action Furnace even offers our own rebate and we want you to start fresh in 2024! We’re proud to offer a $1000 Home Comfort Credit towards any additional equipment upgrade when you buy a new furnace. Get your quote today!
