Free Home Energy Efficiency Upgrades & Assessment for Eligible Nova Scotians

We’re fortunate to live in a province where there are incentives available such as Nova Scotia’s HomeWarming program.

What does the HomeWarming program offer?

The program offers home energy upgrades where the homeowner normally wouldn’t be able to afford them. Let’s face it; many energy upgrades are a bit of a luxury item. For many Nova Scotians living pay cheque to pay cheque, home improvements are just completely out of reach.

Eligible homeowners receive a free energy assessment and can receive potential upgrades at no charge. Each home is unique, but every accepted applicant will save money on heating costs & be more comfortable year-round in their home.

Am I Eligible?

To apply for the HomeWarming program you need to:

a.) Be the title owner of your home
b.) Meet the required income brackets (these can be viewed at

They do not review your assets, debts or taxes owing. Their primary concern is in your household income and that you are the owner of the home.

The goal of the program is to help reduce the electrical cost to operate your home which in turn reduces the amount of electricity used in our province.

What kind of Upgrades?

The most common types of upgrades done under the HomeWarming program are:

  • High R Value insulation
  • Draft proofing
  • Silicone sealing
  • Heat Pumps
  • Dehumidifiers
  • Bathroom Fans

Once accepted into the program your home will receive an energy assessment. This process will check for drafts and heat loss in the home as well as insulation in the walls.

Based on the results of the home energy assessment recommendations will be made to which upgrades will provide you with the biggest results for home energy savings.

How to Get Started

The first step is to grab a copy of the application on their website at

From there you will submit the application with two supporting documents.

  • Copy of your property tax bill
  • Verification of line 237 on your Notice of Assessment from CRA

If you meet the required guidelines and are accepted into the program, they will book a time to complete a full, free home energy assessment.
