Heat Pump Rebate Program in Ontario – An Ontario Resident’s How-To Guide.

Heat Pump Rebate Program in Ontario – An Ontario Resident’s How-To Guide.

Once again, homeowners may be eligible for a rebate to improve the energy efficiency of their home. This happened before when our government wanted us to switch from oil to electricity, from electricity to natural gas, then mid efficiency, and later on 99% efficiency gas appliances!

It’s essential to remain cautious of potential scams and aggressive sales tactics. This article by Blackrock HVAC of Ontario aims to inform and raise awareness of the rebate program and its benefits. Please remember that sales tactics today are much more aggressive and A.I sophisticated. Door to door sales is illegal since 2002. If you’re interested in upgrading your HVAC system, please feel free to contact us first for an appointment.

Coming straight outta the pockets of the taxpayers, an entire $13 billion dollars will be distributed to homeowners across Canada to the ones who do some things around the house in 2023 and until the money is gone.

Natural Resources Canada and Enbridge Gas, together with their almighty Government of Canada, in bed with their overlords at WEF, decided that electricity is more up their globalist agenda. At Blackrock HVAC of Ontario, we have nothing in common with Blackrock in New York other than the love of jet fuel and carbon emissions!

Are Heat Pumps Worth It?

At BR HVAC, we understand that opinions on heating spaces with electricity vary. As HVAC professionals, we’ve been working around Toronto since the early 2000s and have heard stories from homeowners about very high electricity rates and their preference for gas furnaces or water heaters. In the 2010s, we began replacing aging units while implementing better installation practices, we also began installing Mitsubishi Mr.Slim mini splits.

Prior to the pandemic, heat pump systems were gaining popularity in Europe and Canada was testing their effectiveness in typical-sized buildings in cold weather climates. In 2023, the industry has become increasingly horny for heat pumps, so get ready for cheesy radio ads and lawn sign scams. Fortunately, in 2002, door-to-door HVAC sales were made illegal.

This rebate is available to residential homeowners who install energy-efficient heating and cooling equipment in their homes, including heat pump systems. At BR HVAC, we’re focusing on offering two popular options to our Greater Toronto customers: upgrades to forced-air furnace systems and ductless mini-splits that qualify.

If you’re considering upgrading your HVAC system, we encourage you to take advantage of the rebate program and explore your options. At BR HVAC, we’re committed to providing our customers with high-quality HVAC systems and services that meet their unique needs and preferences. Please feel free to contact us for an appointment to discuss your options.

At BR HVAC we are a no bullshit company and we’ve never done rebates because of their stink and poor systems built by our slow government. This time for some reason the system works great and it’s finally a win – win situation. Please feel free to contact us for more information on how we can help you take advantage of this opportunity.

Since BRHVAC is a modern HVAC company, we thought it was fitting to ask Chat GPT to explain the rebates as well!

Keep Your Ductless System in Top Shape: A Guide to Maintenance.

Keep Your Ductless System in Top Shape: A Guide to Maintenance.

Three Steps to Maintaining Ductless Mini Splits in the GTA.

  1. Clean or replace air filters. Easily the most important routine step that few actually do. It’s shocking how many people don’t do this. You can also visit the outdoor unit and look around it. Spot dirty spots, dusty coil, or growing weeds or bushes. Keep it clean down there.
  2. Don’t wait until your system breaks down! Schedule regular maintenance with a technician to catch up, give them a bottle of your new wine, and have them spot and potential issues.
  3. With high season in the Greater Toronto Area being June – September, it’s crucial to schedule your maintenance between April and June. Anytime after that you’ll be hunting and paying higher prices for your service visit.
While it’s important to encourage proper maintenance and raise awareness about the consequences of neglecting HVAC systems, it’s also important to approach the topic in a way that is respectful and constructive. Rather than poking fun at those who don’t maintain their equipment, it may be more effective use those photos and videos as educational content. Remind others about regular maintenance and the potential consequences of neglecting it.” Orest Omeliukh

Evaporator: The Indoor Unit

As a condominium property manager or a warehouse maintenance manager in the Toronto area, ensuring the proper heating & cooling is critical for occupant comfort and boss satisfaction. Neglecting routine maintenance can lead to expensive repairs or system replacements real quick, resulting in uncomfortable conditions, potential legal liability, and awkward boardroom conversations. By scheduling ahead using our booking app below, be on top of your deadlines.

Commercial units get bad much quicker so pay attention. Too often they are installed in elevator rooms where the air is dirty and the coils get plugged on the evaporator. This requires a disassembly and a light jet cleaning.

Condenser: The Outdoor Unit

Dirt, leaves, and other debris accumulates on the condenser fins, which reduces airflow and often leads to poor cooling. It’s important to regularly clean the unit, either by hosing it down or using a soft-bristle brush to remove debris. Also, decide at what frequency you want to schedule your maintenances. The technician can perform checks that your tools can’t, like testing the refrigerant levels, and inspect the compressor and capacitor to make sure everything is in good working order. At Blackrock HVAC our goal is to perform a maintenance so good that we barely see you for service calls!

An air to air heat pump is a type of heating and cooling system that uses outside air as a heat source in the winter and a heat sink in the summer. It works by extracting heat from the outside air and transferring it indoors during the winter, and extracting heat from indoors and transferring it outside during the summer, providing an energy-efficient and cost-effective way to heat and cool a home a home or space in Ontario.

The 3 Wins of a Mini Split!

First: Ductless systems are highly efficient and can save homeowners a significant amount of money on energy bills. This is especially true when you’re fuel is propane. They are designed to heat and cool individual rooms or zones, which means that they can be used to heat or cool only the rooms that are being used, rather than the entire house. This results in significant savings.

Second: Ductless systems are extremely versatile and can be installed in a variety of different locations, including bedrooms, office spaces, workshops, and even apartments or condos. This makes them an excellent for anybody who wants control of their temperature.

Third: Better air conditioning will improve you sex life! Just ask anybody who has one.

Why are so many people happy with their mini-splits?


A Mitsubishi Mr. Slim heat pump ductless system works by using an outdoor compressor unit and one or more indoor air-handling units to heat or cool individual rooms or zones in a home or building. The indoor units are connected to the outdoor unit by a conduit, which houses the power cable, refrigerant tubing, suction tubing, and a condensate drain.

When the system is turned on, the outdoor unit pulls in outside air and circulates it through a refrigerant cycle, extracting heat from the outside air and transferring it to the indoor unit. The indoor unit then releases this heat into the room, providing warmth in the winter. In the summer, the process is reversed, with the outdoor unit extracting heat from the indoor air and transferring it outside, effectively cooling the indoor space.


Mitsubishi Mr. Slim ductless units are particularly adept at providing temperature control in spaces where traditional heating or cooling solutions may not be practical or feasible. This is especially true in homes or buildings where no existing ductwork is in place, rendering it difficult and costly to install a conventional HVAC system that requires ducts to circulate air throughout the space. In addition, an office that has already reached maximum rooftop unit capacity may require a mini split ducted or cassette system as the solution. A ductless system offers maximum flexibility, often requiring only electrical power and a hose for draining condensate, making it an ideal choice for a wide range of situations

As a contractor with years of experience installing HVAC systems, I have found that Mitsubishi brand units consistently meet and exceed the expectations of my clients. My team and I have installed many Mitsubishi Mr. Slim ductless units around the GTA and remote parts of Ontario like Christian Island. I can say with confidence that they offer unparalleled reliability. Our customers are consistently impressed with the quiet operation. The Mitsubishi brand has truly set itself apart in terms of quality, and I am proud to offer their products to our clients. Whether it’s a residential or commercial installation, I trust Mitsubishi to provide you with the best modern solution.


The condensor varies is size depending on capacity, but expect it to look something like the ones in these photos. It needs a place to sit or hang, power supply, and room to breath & be serviced.


The evaporator needs to be sized per space being heated/cooled and strategically located This is where working with professionals like ourselves makes a difference. We have enough experience to make the system work better for you.
