Canada is about to stop accepting new applicants into its national program that provides heat pump incentives to residents across the country. This couldn't come at worse time – we desperately need to transition to electric heating to decrease energy bills and reduce climate pollution.
Electric heat pumps are a much cleaner alternative for heating our homes than “natural” gas (more accurately: fossil gas) or other fossil fuels like oil. Heat pumps run on electricity and are more efficient, leading to negligible emissions and lower monthly energy bills for residents. What’s more, heat pumps double as cooling systems in the summer and can purify indoor air. They’re a win-win-win for the climate, public health, and our wallets.
We need more, not less support to install heat pumps across the country. And new buildings should come equipped with these clean devices in the first place.
