Canada is about to build millions of new homes and the federal government has announced financial incentives for the construction of new housing. This is all needed. But new homes shouldn’t be running on fossil fuels for heating and causing an increase in national greenhouse gas emissions.
Luckily, they don’t have to.
We have a much cleaner alternative for heating our homes than “natural gas” (more accurately: fossil gas) or other fossil fuels like oil: electric heat pumps! They run on electricity and lead to negligible emissions. They also provide lower monthly energy bills for residents and provide cooling in the summer. They’re a win-win for the climate and people.
