My water source heat pump quitted working recently and I changed it to a new one. Wonder if a replacement is eligible? or it has to be an upgrade?

Got some dimmer and bunch of BR30's from costco yay!

Does anyone know if dimming my 11w bulb @ 50 percent means I utilize 5.5w electricity? And if leaving bulbs on 24/7 mean longer lasting than flicking on/off?

Yes, turning down the dimmer will reduce electricity use, although your eyes may not see the light level corresponding linearly to energy use.

As for the effect on life span of LED bulbs of turning them on and off, that's hard to say. According to Philips, it has no effect: https://www.lighting.philips.com/main/s ... on-and-off . But I'm not sure I entirely believe that. I have had some LED bulbs fail, and other semiconductor electronic devices as well, and it pretty much seems that they always fail when you switch them on, not during use, doesn't it?

It wasn't on the list when I made my comment. Nice to see it's been added since.

Yep, they added it in a week or so after. If you have a tesla it's a no brainer. As all the chargers seem to be in the $700+ range

How much rebate can I expect to rip out an old oil furnace and put in a heatpump? Just $1000 if I'm reading correctly?

Probably cost $10,000 to install I'm assuming. Rather put on a sweater, then go to Mexico for a trip lmao.

When did BC Hydro offer deals on smart thermostats? All I keep seeing are led bulbs deals (whoopty doo). Whereas Ontario keeps getting deals, BC Hydro sure are stingy.
