Benefits of a natural gas-powered direct contact water heater
The direct contact water heater instantaneously transforms the water that passes through it into sanitary hot water. It is perfect for industrial processes, where it rapidly generates large quantities of hot water. Generate greater volumes of sanitary hot water, faster. The natural gas-powered direct contact water heater outperforms similar, oil-fired units, as well as being more economical and more efficient.

The 15% total corresponds to a potential customer who installs a natural gas warm-air furnace with a capacity of 10,000 m3. The rebates are subject to credit approval and eligibility for the natural gas Consumption Rebate Program and the Energy Efficiency Program. The terms and conditions of the program and the amounts of financial assistance are subject to change without notice. A five-year natural gas supply contract is required. Other conditions may apply. The financial assistance will only be paid once the natural gas appliance(s) is(are) installed. The eligibility criteria are listed in the Consumption Rebate Program guide approved by the Régie de l’énergie, a copy of which may be obtained on request.
2. The rebates are applicable to businesses located on the Énergir gas network and equipped with oil-fired central heating appliances, provided that they do not have a heat pump or dual-energy heating system and that the expected new natural gas appliance consumption is at least of 3,600m3 of natural gas. Other conditions may apply. The terms and conditions of the program and the amounts of financial assistance are subject to change without notice.
