We’re committed to bringing our customers new technologies that use energy more efficiently, lower GHG emissions and reduce costs. One of them is natural gas heat pumps. These units transfer heat from the air outside to inside a building for space heating or hot water.
What is a Natural Gas Heat Pump?
Natural gas heat pumps are similar to electric heat pumps, except they are powered by natural gas. Heat pumps move heat from one location to another. They are very efficient because they produce more energy than they use to operate.
Natural gas heat pumps are an attractive alternative to traditional electric heat pumps. They are highly efficient, offer significant energy savings, and lower greenhouse gas emissions.
Benefits & Uses
Natural gas heat pumps are very energy efficient, which can save you money on your energy bills. They are also environmentally friendly, producing fewer emissions than traditional gas heating systems. Natural gas heat pumps can be used in a variety of settings, including residential homes, apartments and commercial buildings.
Our Commitment, Plans and Progress
Natural Gas Heat Pump Pilot Project
We are currently testing natural gas heat pumps in Nova Scotia for homes and apartment buildings. Customer satisfaction is important to us and we want to ensure that before we introduce a new product, we’re 100% confident it will be safe, reliable, affordable and energy efficient. Once testing is complete, we will provide more information about natural gas heat pumps for Nova Scotia.

Frequently Asked Questions
About Natural Gas Heat Pumps
Can I purchase a natural gas heat pump from Eastward Energy?
While natural gas heat pumps are available in other parts of Canada, they are not currently for sale in Nova Scotia. We are planning to introduce natural gas heat pumps in Nova Scotia after testing has been completed.
Do natural gas heat pumps offer cooling?
Currently, most natural gas heat pumps do not offer a cooling feature. By using natural gas as a fuel source, they can provide both space heating and hot water heating for homes and buildings.
When will I be able to purchase a natural gas heat pump?
We understand that many people are interested in natural gas heat pumps. Please stay tuned for updates regarding availability, preferred contractors, and the cost of these units.
About Eastward Energy & Hydrogen Production
Hydrogen Deployment Project At Eastward Energy
Eastward Energy’s proposed Halifax Hydrogen Deployment (H2D) Project would develop a local source of low-carbon hydrogen and be a catalyst for the development and scaling of a hydrogen hub in the Halifax region.
The H2D Project is proposed to be located in Dartmouth’s Burnside Industrial Park. Hydrogen produced at the facility would be blended into the local natural gas distribution system and used for heavy transportation applications in the Halifax area.
