Ground / Water Source Heat Pumps


Although Nova Scotia experiences vast temperature changes from summer to winter, a few feet below the earth’s surface remains at a fairly constant temperature.

A ground-source heat pump uses this constancy to your advantage: as a source of heat in the winter, and a source of cooling in the summer.

These heat pumps can cut heating and cooling costs by up to 65% compared to standard electric systems, and can reduce your water heating costs by 25% or more.

Save money, energy and our environment: that’s just good business.
