Nova Scotia HomeWarming

HomeWarming offers no-charge energy assessments and free home upgrades to eligible Nova Scotians.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

HomeWarming is offered by Efficiency Nova Scotia and Clean Foundation as part of a broad, province-wide initiative to provide energy efficiency upgrades to income-qualified homeowners. HomeWarming is proudly sponsored by Nova Scotia Power and the Province of Nova Scotia. You can also visit EnergyAssist to learn about other free programs available in Nova Scotia to help you save money on heating and energy.

Starting in 2015, Nova Scotia Power is funding $37 million over 10 years for low-income energy efficiency targeted at electrically heated homes, with the work delivered by Clean Foundation. This charitable contribution from Nova Scotia Power will not be recovered from energy ratepayers. The Province of Nova Scotia invests approximately $14 million a year to fund low-income energy efficiency programs for non-electrically heated homes. This work is delivered by Efficiency Nova Scotia.

FROM OUR PARTNERS

“It’s important to us that people living on lower incomes benefit from energy efficiency and feel comfortable at home. That’s why we offer a no-charge energy assessment and potential upgrades to income-qualified homeowners.

If we discover that draft-proofing, insulation or other efficiency options can help make heating & cooling your home substantially more affordable and comfortable, we’ll install the upgrades at no cost to you. We’ll even coordinate the retrofits.” – Efficiency Nova Scotia
