Modern, energy-efficient heat pumps allow homes to be comfortable all year round. They can provide heating in the cold months and cooling when it gets hot, and they can save you money.

CHF BC’s partnership with AIRLUX offers members products and services from a locally owned and operated company with a history of working with housing co-ops.


AIRLUX is a BC-owned and operated company that has specialized in providing heating and cooling solutions through heat pumps for over 16 years.

AIRLUX is a Program Registered Contractor (PRC) through the Clean BC Better Homes Rebate Program.

Some co-op clients have included H.W. Flesher (see case study), Halston Hills and Riverside Landing.

How Heat Pumps Work

Are you concerned about the carbon footprint of your home's heating and cooling system? Do you want a more efficient and comfortable way to keep your home at a comfortable temperature? If so, a heat pump may be the solution you've been looking for.

This short video explains some of the benefits of heat pumps:

  • Energy efficiency: Heat pumps can produce four to five units of energy for every unit of electricity used, making them extremely efficient.
  • Lower energy bills: Heat pumps can reduce your energy bills by up to 50 percent.
  • Comfort: Heat pumps provide excellent control over your home’s temperature, keeping it at a comfortable level at all times.
  • Air quality: Air-to-air indoor units provide air filtration, resulting in improved air quality.
  • Quiet operation: Heat pumps operate with whisper quiet operation, making them perfect for any home.
  • Minimal maintenance: Heat pumps require minimal maintenance and have a longer lifespan than conventional heating systems.

Case Study: H.W. Flesher

H.W. Flesher was one of the first co-ops to make a comprehensive switch to heat pumps. This is what the maintenance coordinator and vice-chair had to say about the experience of working with Airlux.

“My housing co-op chose Airlux over other equipment and installation suppliers because their price point, their commitment to service and their ability to deliver the products on our time schedule.  Our experience with Airlux to date has been excellent with the project going better than expected and the timeline being met. The Airlux team [was] responsive to our input and open to feedback as well as work change requests due to sensitivity issues with some of our members. So far, a lot of people are reporting feeling warm for the first time in their apartments because of the Airlux heat pumps and savings on their Hydro bills of 30% and more. That’s huge for seniors on fixed incomes and for young families with limited incomes. “


CHF BC and AIRLUX can work with your co-op to minimize costs.

Different governments provide support for switching to heat pumps. Contact us to learn more.

Incentives depend on multiple factors:

  • whether you’re planning to switch from another fuel source to electricity
  • your municipality
  • whether a household qualifies for additional support due to low-income.


Hear from a satisfied AIRLUX customer.

The video features a homeowner couple who installed a multi-split unit and two heat pump units in their home, along with an EV charger and panel upgrade. The installation was prompted by a program offering free money, and the homeowners were pleasantly surprised by the benefits of the upgrades, including consistent temperatures and improved heating efficiency, as well as the usefulness of air conditioning during a heatwave. The upgrades also allowed them to reduce their carbon footprint.
