A major factor affecting the ROI of green HVAC systems in the GTA is the comparison to heating with natural gas. Natural Gas is inexpensive and most gas burning equipment is comparatively lower in price. The good news is that comparing greener equipment against other fossil fuels such as propane and oil are much easier to see returns as those fuels are costly.

A small percentage of homes and condos around the GTA are already using electric furnaces, portable air conditioners and baseboard heating. These homes could already think of themselves as having a green source of heat. However, many of these systems are very old and very inefficient. In comparison, modern ducted and ductless heat pump systems will boost performance of up to 3.5x more efficient. Updating these systems can yield a very high ROI. We have helped many customers upgrade these old systems and we have seen their operating cost reduced up to 65%.
