Water heater grants

Ideal for houses and condos, the storage water heater is the most common type of water heater in use today. It quickly and inexpensively heats up large quantities of water and stores it in a tank until it is needed.

Note that regardless of the appliance chosen, the grant offered depends on your consumption volume. To find out more about the costs and procedure to follow to switch to natural gas, see the steps for connecting your home.
