A rebate to help switch to a ground/water source heat pump - up to $750 per ton!
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.
Ground & Water Source Heat Pumps
Note: Where a heat pump 5.4 tons or greater does not meet the COP requirements listed below, but is within 5 per cent, the heat pump is eligible for 80 per cent of the listed rebate.
