Smarter Home Heating

Raising Awareness for Heat Pump Deployment in GTHA and Ontario Single-family Homes

In Ontario, the costs of fossil fuels are on the rise and conventional home heating systems are getting expensive to operate. You have smarter alternatives for home heating and cooling, like an electric heat pump.

A heat pump can completely replace a conventional heating and cooling system (like a furnace and air-conditioner), or work with the existing system. There are heat pump options for every home and budget, and using a heat pump will lower your energy bills.

Heat pumps are also the greenest way to heat your home and are a key technology to reduce the negative impacts of climate change. Don’t wait for your furnace or A/C to breakdown entirely. Think about a heat pump today. Rebates are available.

Throughout 2022 and 2023, The Sustainable Technologies Evaluation Program (STEP) is leading a communications campaign to support the deployment of ASHPs in existing homes within the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area. Primary funding for this initiative is being provided by The Atmospheric Fund (TAF) with additional base funding support from The City of Toronto, Region of Peel, and York Region.
