Oil to Heat Pump Affordability Program

What is it?

The Oil to Heat Pump Affordability Program (OHPA) is a government funded program to incentivize Nova Scotians to make the switch from an oil furnace to energy efficient electric heat pumps to keep their home's comfortable all year. The program covers the full average cost of the heat pump installation and any necessary electrical upgrades up to $30,000.

Do I need to pay up front?

While you are required to make upfront payment for the work prior to reimbursement, eligible applicants can fill out an Advanced Payment Form which allows the contractor to bill Efficiency Nova Scotia directly for the first $15,000 associated with the work. In other words, if you planned for $20,000 in upgrades, filling out the Advanced Payment Form would leave the homeowner with a $5,000 upfront payment, with Efficiency Nova Scotia paying the remaining $15,000. The reimbursement of $5,000 would then be returned to the homeowner by Efficiency Nova Scotia within 30-days of the work's completion. The contractor is not responsible for distributing rebates or reimbursements.
