Increased Fireplace Rebate to $300

Posted by Sound Marketing on behalf of House Smart Home Improvements
This information from the website.

Purchase an EnerChoice fireplace between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2013 and you may qualify for a $300 rebate from FortisBC.

What is an EnerChoice fireplace?

All fireplaces sold in Canada have an EnerGuide™ label that tells you how energy efficient it is. There is no ENERGY STAR® rating for fireplaces, so in BC, manufacturers developed the EnerChoice designation to identify the most efficient models.
When shopping for a new fireplace, look for this logo. It means that the model is among the top 25 percentile of efficiency.
To qualify for EnerChoice status hearths must have minimum efficiency ratings of:
  • 62.4% or higher for fireplaces
  • 61% or higher for inserts
  • 66% or higher for free-standing stoves

How to apply for a rebate

  1. Review the terms & conditions.
  2. Purchase an eligible EnerChoice fireplace and have it installed by a gas contractor registered with the BC Safety Authority (BCSA). You can find a list of retailers at
  3. Complete the application form and include copies of the invoice showing details of all worked performed, including the date of installation, make and model.
  4. Send us the completed application and invoice to:

    P.O. Box 9090
    Surrey, BC, V3T 5W4
  5. If you qualify, we'll mail you a cheque for $300. Please allow a minimum of 90 days to process.
