Heating Oil Conversion to Electricity in the
Montreal Area

For a Sustainable Ecological Transition

Our mission is to be a major player in Québec’s energy transition by converting oil heating systems to electricity and consequently reducing our environmental footprint for the benefit of our
future generations.

The heating oil industry has been steadily declining over the past years due to several factors such as unpredictable and fluctuating oil prices, the high costs of maintaining heating oil equipment, restrictive municipal regulations designed to reduce pollution caused by greenhouse gas emissions, financial incentives offered by the CHAUFFEZ VERT program, not to mention consumers’ growing concerns over environmental issues. These factors are the driving force behind the launching of this new venture giving you the option to safely and expertly convert your oil, dual energy and natural gas heating systems to electricity.

Conversion from oil to electric ○ Conversion from natural gas to electric ○ Electric heating ○ Central/mural air conditioning ○ Oil tank removal ○ Heat pumps (central or mural) ○ Heat pumps (low temperature)

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the electric conversion of an oil heating or dual energy heating system eligible for grants or subsidies?2019-05-23T09:13:18-04:00

Is it necessary to upgrade the electric entry to convert a heating oil system to electricity?2019-05-23T09:12:51-04:00

If the electric entry capacity is 60 or 100 amps, an upgrade to 200 amps will be required. The large majority of homes equipped with a 200 amp entry have the required capacity to supply the power needed for the new electric heating system. In certain cases, such as homes with more than 4,000 square feet, an upgrade from 200 to 300 or 400 amps may be required.

No, we specialize in the replacement of oil heating and dual energy heating systems with central warm air or hot water (boilers) electric heating systems. However, with the conversion of a central heating system, we can install an electric baseboard or a convector in a specific area of the home if needed.

How to choose the right electric heating system to replace my oil heating system?2019-05-23T09:11:33-04:00

During the initial free consultation, écoconversions inspects the premises to determine the right electric capacity required to meet all your heating and cooling requirements by evaluating the following factors:

  1. The BTU capacity of the existing oil heating system
  2. The property’s square footage of indoor liveable space
  3. The insulation factor
  4. Le type of property: (split) bungalow, split, cottage, duplex triplex, etc.
  5. The location of the property: detached, semi-detached, row house, proximity to water and exposure to the elements
  6. The capacity of the electric water heater: In cases where we convert an oil-fired water heater, we take into consideration the number of occupants, the daily routine of hot water usage, the frequency of taking baths vs showers, the use of a spa, etc
  7. A winning formula: common sense
How long does it take to carry out the conversion?2019-05-23T09:11:17-04:00

Normally, the conversion should take one full day. However, in cases where we would need to modify the electric entry, it would take two days to carry out the conversion.

Simply to mention how satisfied we are with the work done by Pierre and his team. Clean, friendly, and meticulous, they took the time to explain and tell us about our project. Well done!

Thank you!

We have hired Écoconversions to convert our heating system from oil to electric. In comparison with other offers, the Écoconversions quote had a very competitive price. The team was extremely efficient and professional and all the work (removing the old tank, dismantling the old furnace, laying and connecting the new electrical cables and installing the new electrical control system) was finished within two days. There had been a small complication with connecting the electrical system to our fuse box, but Écoconversions solved this problem with ingenuity and without difficulty. We are pleased to recommend Écoconversions for this type of project without reservation.

Viktor Zacek, (Translated from french)

The Eco Conversions team showed up at my home on time.
Everything is done by a team of 4 people who are totally synchronized.
Courtesy and professionalism are the order of the day! All our questions were answered with patience and eagerness.
Everything was finished 4 hours after the work began… emptying and removal of the oil tank, removal of the pipes and clogging and simultaneous installation of the new furnace!

Thank you and congratulations for a job well done!

Michel Choquette, (Translated from french)

You are very nice and professional. You answered all my questions and the explanations for obtaining the grant are very clear and precise. I would also like to point out that Mr. Ouimet and his boys have done an exceptional job. They were punctual, competent, clean, friendly and very kind in answering all my questions. Everything works very well and I hope to be able to enjoy my new furnace for several years. It will be my pleasure to recommend you to anyone in need of your services.

Once again thank you for everything!
