Heating System Rebates

Heating makes up half the energy bill in most Nova Scotian homes, making it the single largest use of energy for most of us. Upgrade to an efficient home heating system and we’ll offer rebates to complement your monthly savings and comfortable home. Efficient heating systems like heat pumps, wood/pellet stoves, water heaters, and solar can save you money, by using less energy.

If you have installed a qualified heating system in the last 90 days, you could be eligible to receive a rebate of up to $2,500. Rebates are available to all homes regardless of how you heat your home.
