Nova Scotia Heat Pump Rebates

The provincial government of Nova Scotia offers two main programs for homeowners who want to install heat pumps:

Efficiency Nova Scotia: This program provides electric heat pump rebates through two options: the Home Energy Assessment Rebate and the Heating System Rebate. The Home Energy Assessment rebate requires you to have a $199 home energy assessment, which will give you recommendations on how to save energy and access rebates up to $10,000 on qualifying upgrades, such as heat pumps. The Heating System rebate does not require an assessment, but only certain units are eligible, and the rebate amount is up to $1,600. You can also apply for the Oil to Heat Pump Affordability program, which provides up to $10,000 to help you switch from oil to heat pumps.


Free Heat Pumps for Low-Income Households: This program provides free heat pumps and other home upgrades to low-income Nova Scotians, thanks to a $140-million provincial investment in energy efficiency programs over four years. The funding will help you move away from oil heat faster, with extra support for low and middle-income households. You can apply now to the HomeWarming program for free heat pumps and any electrical panel upgrades needed to install them. If you have already received energy efficiency upgrades through this program, you can apply again for this new support.

Canadian Government Heat Pump Rebates

The federal government of Canada offers two main programs for homeowners who want to install heat pumps:


Canada Greener Homes Grant: This federal grant for heat pumps provides grants of up to $5,000 to help you make energy-efficient retrofits to your home, such as heat pumps. You need to have a pre- and post-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation to access the grant. You can also get a $600 reimbursement for the cost of the evaluations. You can apply for the grant online and find a registered energy advisor in your area.


Low Carbon Economy Fund: This program provides funding to provinces and territories to support projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, such as heat pumps. The funding is delivered through agreements with each province and territory, and the details and eligibility criteria may vary depending on where you live. You can check the status of the agreements and the projects supported by the fund on the program website.

Kevin D.

"I have used Discover Efficiency to service a previously installed Heat Pump on a couple of occasions. Cam is highly professional, honest and timely. I have never had a question Cam could not answer or provide a solution to.

I would not hesitate to recommend Discover Efficiency as Cam always exceeds expectations."
