Ottawa Fuel Conversion FAQ
Historically natural gas is the cheapest way to heat an Ottawa home. With the advancements in cold climate heat pump technology, we have found that a hybrid system utilizing a heat pump in the should seasons and natural gas furnace in the dead of winter proves to be the cheapest utility bills.
This can be very dependent on your area and your exact situation. People located within the city, with neighbours using natural gas, generally get the meter installation for free. If you live in a rural area very far from the road, you may have costs associated with the installation.
Most homes either have 100 amp or 200 amp service. In our experience, most 200 amp homes can support a fully electric HVAC system. It is rare that a 100 amp home can support a fully electric system, but it can be done. A free in-home assessment can determine if your electrical service can support your heating needs.
This depends on how busy enbridge and their subcontractors are. We have seen gas meters installed within a week and also meters that have taken 8 months. It seems that the average wait time is 2-3 months after application.
Propane costs have gone up in recent years but due to it’s efficiency is still cheaper than oil. Natural gas costs are significantly lower than propane.
YES! Hybrid systems allow you to still use natural gas in tandem with an electric heat pump.
