Nanaimo Climate Action Hub: Heat Pump Campaign Survey
Heat pumps are an essential tool in the fight against climate change. Having a heat pump in your home can mean the difference between life and death during extreme temperatures.
Yet too many British Columbians are unable to afford them. The cost of having a CleanBC Income Qualified Program (IQP) registered contractor install a heat pump is often in the tens of thousands of dollars, well above the value of available rebates.
New rebates and increasing demand for heat pumps, combined with a shortage of available installers, mean there is little incentive for companies to keep their prices competitive.
The Nanaimo Climate Action Hub is launching a campaign to ensure that heat pump installations will be affordable and efficient for everyone, thereby reducing energy consumption, combatting climate change, and making homes more comfortable in both summer and winter.
The first step in the campaign is to gather information on what getting a heat pump - or trying to - has been like for BC citizens. The Nanaimo Climate Action Hub has prepared a short, five-minute survey that asks about your heat pump experience. Please complete this survey today.
