Stay in-the-know on affordable housing upgrades
A win-win for you and affordable multi-family housing providers
Enbridge Gas has been helping affordable housing, shelters, co-ops and eligible private market-rate multi-family buildings save energy and money for 25 years. We’re well-known in the affordable housing community—when you work with us, you reinforce your credibility as a service provider.
What incentives are available to customers?
Budget constraints can be a major obstacle to moving projects forward in the affordable multi-family housing space. The Enbridge Gas Affordable Multi-Family Housing program provides incentives up to $200,000* for energy-efficient boilers, water heaters, make-up air units, automated controls and other HVAC equipment.
What makes this a win-win?
In addition to your customers earning incentives for upgrading to high-efficiency equipment, you’re eligible for incentives too. Business partner and distributor incentives vary by type of equipment, with limited-time bonus incentives† currently available on select measures—see details below.
How can Enbridge Gas help close sales?
Many affordable multi-family housing providers are aware that Enbridge Gas offers incentives, but they don’t know how to calculate the amount. We can help you make the business case for high-efficiency equipment by calculating eligible incentives to add to your project quote.
For affordable housing providers, being able to see exactly how much money they’ll get back is key to closing the sale.
At what point should I reach out?
Contact us before you start the project. We’d like to be part of your project from start to finish. Customers see us as a neutral third party and rely on us for candid advice. We aren’t trying to sell them anything, we just want to help them achieve their goal of saving energy, money and reducing emissions.
What’s the turnaround time for incentive calculations?
After you provide job details, we can usually turn around information to support your quote in a day or two. We’ll provide the expected natural gas savings per year, payback period, carbon savings and the incentive amount. Once the quote is ready, we can go to the customer together—we find that customers really value our input.

4 benefits of make-up air unit upgrades
Affordable multi-family housing buildings typically need to replenish a large volume of air on a frequent basis—and because of the temperature difference between indoor and outdoor air, make-up air (MUA) units tasked with air replenishment can account for a significant portion of an HVAC system’s overall energy use.
Upgrading to condensing MUA units can contribute to improved building air quality, lower energy bills and more.
Here are 4 benefits of upgrading the efficiency of MUA units
Improve air quality
Condensing MUA units bring in fresh, outdoor air by replenishing the air pushed out through exhaust systems more efficiently, reducing contaminants and improving indoor air quality.
Lower energy bills
Because they offer added insulation and condensing technology with multiple heat exchangers, condensing MUA units are a more energy-efficient alternative to standard MUA units. As a result, condensing MUA units use less natural gas to operate, which saves on ongoing energy costs.
Well-performing MUA units efficiently replace air, and prevent unbalanced heating and cooling conditions that force residents to use windows and doors to correct imbalances.
Highly efficient MUA units help reduce odours—a common cause of building complaints. They can also help prevent drafts, dust and dirt from entering a building.
In addition to the many benefits of upgrading to highly efficient MUA units, your customers can earn incentives up to $26,000* to upgrade from constant-speed MUA units to energy-saving two-speed or variable frequency drive MUA units.
