qRD RESPONSE TO COVID-19
Wood Stove Exchange Program

The Provincial Wood Stove Exchange Program provides rebates to eligible residents who remove a non-EPA certified wood-burning appliance used for home heating and replace it with a cleaner heating option.

 

The program is funded through the BC Lung Association and qathet Regional District to reduce particulate matter in the atmosphere and improve air quality.

 

Homeowners can apply through Efficiency BC to access additional rebates outside this program. For those exchanging their wood stove for an air sourced heat pump, some models are eligible through Fortis BC for additional savings. Local retailers may also offer additional in-house incentives.

New Heating Appliance Type Rebate Amount
Gas, Pellet, or Propane Stove or Insert, Electric Heat Pump $550
EPA Certified Wood Stove $400
Acceptable air quality is everyone’s right. Protecting air quality is everyone responsibility.
