Nova Scotia’s New Oil to Heat Pump Affordability Program – 2024

Share This Post

Nova Scotia’s Oil to Heat Pump program provides substantial financial assistance to help residents transition from oil heating to efficient heat pump systems, offering both cost savings and environmental benefits.

This program sets itself apart by offering extensive financial support of up to $30,000 to Nova Scotian residents transitioning from oil heating to efficient heat pumps. Up to $15,000 from the federal government and up to $15,000 from the province of Nova Scotia.

This support encompasses the complete cost of installation, including the heat pump itself, necessary electrical upgrades, and even oil tank removal or decommissioning.

Such comprehensive financial aid significantly reduces entry barriers, making the switch to sustainable heating solutions more accessible than ever before.

Key Takeaways:
Financial Eligibility: The program offers additional financial assistance to qualifying low- and moderate-income households based on the following income thresholds:

  • 1 person: $37,260
  • 2 to 4 people: $77,050
  • 3 person: $98,900
  • 4 people: $120,750
  • 5 or more people: $126,500

Streamlined Process: Submit your application through the Oil to Heat Pump Program Application. Ensure you include the following required documents:

  • Purchased oil statements for the last 12 months (minimum 500 liters)
  • Proof of ownership (property value assessment notice or property tax bill)
  • Proof of income (Tax Notice of Assessment from Canada Revenue Agency for all household members over 18)

Hassle-free Audit:

Pre-and post-energy evaluation are required. Service organizations handle document submission after the post-audit, ensuring a smooth and streamlined process. Both audits combined costs 199$, with reimbursement once the grant process has been completed.

Recognizing the diverse economic landscape, the program extends additional financial support to qualifying low-and moderate-income households, ensuring wider participation. The streamlined online application process and a $250 upfront payment further contribute to a smooth and accessible transition. Additional information on the Canada’s Natural Resource’s Site.
