Under the Total Home Energy Savings Program, New Brunswick Power encourages homeowners to increase their home insulation,
seal air leaks and update their current electric heating systems with heat pumps. Homeowners who heat with forced-air electric
furnaces (including heat pumps) or boilers, or radiant baseboard, wall, or ceiling systems are eligible. Replacing older combustion
heating systems may also qualify you for the rebate program. You must use a NB Power approved contractor who installs a qualifying
model to be eligible.
For more information on how to qualify for financial incentives and required documents, you can review the program guidelines here.
The first step is to sign up for the program at nbpower.com. You’ll be contacted by a representative who can guide you through the home energy evaluation process. Once approved and the projects completed, homeowners must show receipts from a construction contractor or the home improvement centre where materials were purchased.
The HVAC contractor you select must be from the approved list provided by New Brunswick Power and the contractor must install a qualifying heat pump model. We can put you in touch with an approved local contractor when you call to schedule your home assessment.
The ductless system must have earned the Energy Star and have efficiency ratings of:
18 SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) minimum. This describes the cooling efficiency of the heat pump.
10 HSPF (heating season performance factor) minimum. The HSPF describes how efficiently the appliance heats.
A rated outdoor temperature of -25 C for heating. The heat pump will provide adequate and efficient heat at temperatures of -25 C and higher.
If you’d like to schedule your FREE in-home assessment we’ll put you in touch with your local participating contractor.

Currently there are no rebates available to Newfoundland homeowners. The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador does offer a financing program, you can find more information about their program here.
Until recently, rebates had only been available to homes heating with electricity. Now the program is also available to homes heating with oil as well.
The rebate amount is determined by the size of heat pump you install in your home with the base rebate starting at $200.00 for a 12,000 BTU heat pump.
Pre-approval for this rebate is required and you must purchase one of the approved cold climate heat pump units listed on Efficiency Nova Scotia’s website here.
Before submitting the pre-approval application, you will need a quote from a qualified heat pump contractor. We can help with this! Submit the FREE in-home assessment form or give us a call at 1-844-505-3828, to arrange for a risk-free estimate from a local approved contractor.
