  • Heat pumps

  • Oil or propane furnaces, boilers and combination systems
  1. Things to think about if you want to change your home heating system

    It can be difficult to choose a heating system. Each system has different:

    • fuel costs;
    • efficiencies; and
    • fuel-storage requirements.

      
    If you change your heating system, you may have to:

    • replace an oil tank;
    • rent propane tanks;
    • cut and store firewood; or
    • upgrade your electrical panel, or transmission line.

      
    Talk to us about installing a new home-heating system.

    • Phone 867-393-7063 or toll free 1-800-661-0408, ext. 7063.
    • Visit our office at 206A Lowe Street, Whitehorse. We are open Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
  2. Heat pumps

    Heat pumps are an efficient way to reduce heating costs. They also reduce greenhouse gas emissions from home heating and minimize impact on the environment. Heat pumps are able to extract heat from the air or ground, even in winter.

    Heat pumps are a proven technology that work well in Yukon. Learn more about heat pumps from the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation.
