Nova Scotia Heat Pump Rebates

Nova Scotia has two programs for providing heat pump rebates:

Home Energy Assessment
A $199 Home Energy Assessment from Efficiency Nova Scotia is the best way to find out if you are able to qualify for a heat pump rebate through this program. The assessment can take up to 3 hours, where an Energy Advisor will review your home for insulation levels, air leakage, and mechanical systems. This assessment will not only show you if a heat pump is a worthwhile investment, but you will uncover other ways to make your home more energy efficient, saving you money in the long run.

Heating System Rebates 

If you have already purchased an eligible heat pump with the help of a contractor, then you still have opportunities for rebates.  Efficiency NS offers rebates of up to $1,600 within 180 days of your heat pump installation. Not all units are eligible, but there is no in-home assessment is needed to qualify for this rebate.

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.

Application Process:

  • Apply through the Canada Greener Homes Grant Program.

  • Pre- and post-retrofit evaluations are covered by grants of up to $600.

This program has also reduced 194,700 tonnes/year of pollution, equivalent to taking almost 60,000 cars off the road.
The initiative has supported over 75,000 jobs in the retrofit economy, fostering a shift toward greener homes and a robust supply chain.
