* Operational savings are reductions in gas consumption based on natural gas costs of $0.17/m3 and the projected consumption resulting from equipment upgrades.

Achieving greater energy efficiency will
help your overall energy consumption and
operating expenses, while at the same
time, improve the comfort and quality of
life for your residents.

We’ll guide you through your energy management project(s) from start to finish, and we’ll even help you with your project costs.

Free In-suite Incentives

NovithermTM Heat Reflector Panels
The radiators and baseboard convectors in your apartments work hard to keep your residents warm and comfortable. NovithermTM Heat Reflector Panels are an easy and effective way to improve your residents’ comfort. It will reflect heat being lost behind the unit, back into the suite. Enbridge Gas is working to reduce energy use in our city by providing heat reflectors to everyone in your apartment building. The reflectors are professionally installed and require zero maintenance. If your building qualifies, heat reflectors will be provided to every apartment in your building at no charge. It’s a win-win – improve the net operating income in your building while improving your residents’ home.*

* Subject to eligibility requirements

A High-Efficiency Boilers. Must be a new non-atmospheric hydronic boiler with thermal efficiency from 85% to 88% and must replace an atmospheric boiler operating in a continuous loop. Rental boilers are eligible. Boilers under 300 MBH must have an AFUE of 85% or greater, limit one per address. Boilers up to 1,500 MBH can be used for water heating as well. Custom incentives are calculated on projected first year’s natural gas savings at $0.40/m3 saved, up to a $100,000 limit.

B Condensing Make-Up Air System (MUA). Incentive applies to the replacement of conventional MUA systems with constant speed motors and minimum combustion efficiency of 80%. Replacement MUA systems must be direct fired self-contained units using 100% outside air and a minimum combustion efficiency of 90% or greater. Direct fired refers to the process in which heat is transferred from the gas fired burner to the incoming fresh air by means of a heat exchanger. The two air streams are separated by the heat exchanger causing no cross contamination. MUA systems combined with demand control ventilation are not eligible for this offer but may be eligible for other Enbridge offers.

C Capital Improvement Guidelines. In order for Incentive Payout, Estimated Savings must be approved by an Enbridge Energy Solutions Consultant. Incentives should not exceed 50% of the project’s capital cost. To be eligible, projects must have a Total Resource Cost (TRC) ratio of .70 or greater, unless otherwise approved. Projects with a simple payback of up to 5 years typically meet the TRC ratio requirement. If greater than 5 years, Enbridge can run a TRC calculation to determine incentive eligibility. For details on how simple payback and total project costs are calculated, contact Enbridge.

D Energy and Heat Recovery Ventilators (ERV/HRV)* – Incentive applies to ventilators used for space conditioning applications (not process heating) in common areas only where no ERV/HRV is required by Ontario Building Code. Must have a minimum sensible heat recovery effectiveness of 65% and a minimum total energy recovery effectiveness of 63% for ERVs at 32°F. Not to be used to recover energy from areas where 100% fresh air is required, no recirculation is allowed by codes or standards, contaminants (gases and vapors) may be present and the ERV may bring them back into the breathing zone, systems where no DCV or scheduled setbacks are required or part of a restaurant exhaust system. Frost control must be used for an ERV where winter design temperature is below 0°F. For installations that have an electric humidification, the HRV incentive will apply.

E Energy and Heat Recovery Ventilators Improved Effectiveness (ERV/HRV)* – Incentive applies to ventilators used for space conditioning applications (not process heating) in common areas only. Replacement ventilators must be replacing an existing ERV/HRV with 55% energy recovery effectiveness as per Ontario Building Code 2017. Must have a sensible heat recovery effectiveness of 65%, 75% or 85% respectively and a total energy recovery effectiveness of 63%, 73% or 83% respectively for ERVs at 32°F. Not to be used where 100% fresh air is required, no recirculation is allowed by codes or standards, contaminants (gases and vapors) may be present and the ERV may bring them back into the breathing zone, systems where no DCV or scheduled setbacks are required or part of a restaurant exhaust system. Frost control must be used for an ERV where winter design temperature is below 0°F. For installations that have an electric humidification, the HRV incentive will apply.

F Showerheads. Incentive available to existing customers only. New construction not eligible. Customer must use natural gas for water heating and replace an existing standard showerhead (with a flow rate of 2.5 GPM or greater) with an energy-efficient showerhead with a manufacturer-specified flow rate of 1.5 GPM or less. Cannot be combined with any other showerhead offer. Additional terms, conditions and restrictions apply. Please contact Enbridge for further details.

  • Is any of your old equipment coming to the end of its lifecycle?

    Considering replacing it to avoid the emergency costs of equipment failure.

  • Is your gas-fired equipment 10+ years old?

    Older equipment may operate at 60% efficiency, compared to 85% or better for new equipment, and cost more to operate.

  • Looking to maximize your savings?

    Upgrading to high-efficiency boilers, domestic hot water tanks, and make-up air units means larger incentives.
