Save on a Heat Pump with the Canada Greener Homes Grant


Learn more about the Canada Greener Homes Grant and how Atlantic Canadians can apply for it to save on the installation or upgrade of a heat pump.

The Canada Greener Homes Grant is a program facilitated by Natural Resources Canada that offers grants for homeowners who are investing in a new or upgraded heat pump.

In all Atlantic Canadian provinces, homeowners must obtain an EnerGuide Home Energy assessment prior to performing the upgrades to qualify. Following the evaluation, homeowners can:

  • Choose the projects you would like to complete from your report.
  • Get the work completed by your local Daikin dealer (save all receipts you will need them to receive your incentives).
  • Schedule a final Home Energy Evaluation with a Certified Energy Advisor for a post-evaluation report.
  • Receive your incentives. 

The steps and eligibility to apply for the Canada Greener Homes Grant differ by province. Find your province below to figure out what actions you need to take to apply.
