2024 has gotten off to a brutal and icy start, so we’re not exaggerating when we say it’s absolutely imperative to make sure your heating system functions properly this winter!

We’re sure you’re already doing regular maintenance and scheduling any resulting furnace repairs, but if you’re finding you’re needing repairs more often, or if your furnace is getting up there in age, it might be time to think about buying a new furnace.

We know a new furnace is an investment, so to help get you started we’ve put together a handy buyer’s guide to furnace rebates, that can help save you money on a new furnace install. Rebates are one of the best ways to save hundreds of dollars on a new home comfort system, and to ensure you have reliable heating all year long.

What Type of Equipment Qualifies for Rebates?

There are many different types and sizes of furnaces on the market today, so how do you know which one’s can qualify for rebates? Luckily, furnaces have come a long way when it comes to efficiency, so you have a couple options.

Unlike their traditional counterparts, electric furnaces use your home’s electrical supply to warm the air circulating through your ductwork. Electricity moves through a series of coils or elements, which raises the temperature of the air around them. A blower then pushes air over the heated elements and into the ducts, which distribute the heated air through vents to warm your rooms. Electric furnaces don’t emit harmful fumes, making them a fantastic choice for rebates.

Natural gas furnaces are also becoming more efficient. Compared to furnaces from the 90’s and beyond, today’s natural gas models have an AFUE (The Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) rating of over 90%, making these furnaces incredibly efficient, and qualifiable for rebates. Also in Alberta, natural gas is cheaper than electricity for many homeowners, which makes natural gas furnaces a more economical option for most homes. Just make sure to look and see that your furnace has the EnergyStar symbol, that means it has met a number of eco-friendly standards.

No matter the type of furnace you choose, pairing it with a smart thermostat is another fantastic way to qualify for rebates. A smart thermostat is a Wi-Fi-enabled device that automatically adjusts your home’s temperature settings based on your preferences, daily routines, and even the weather outside. Unlike traditional thermostats, which simply maintain a set temperature, smart thermostats learn from your habits and make energy-efficient adjustments to keep you comfortable while using less energy, meaning huge savings for you. Here in Alberta, you might be able to save 10% – 20% on your annual heating and cooling costs just by switching!

Unsure which equipment is the best fit for you, your home and your chosen rebates? Give our experienced heating technicians a call today, we are well versed in most major makes and models, and can help guide you through the rebate process from start to finish.
