Nova Heat Pumps and Air Conditioning: A Community-Centered Business with Exceptional Service

Meeting the Nova Heat Pumps team was a truly pleasant experience. Their professionalism and friendly demeanor made for a great start to a sunny Thursday. After hearing about their recent win in the New Business of the Year category at the Annapolis Valley Business Awards, I had to stop by Nova Heat Pumps & Air Conditioning to see what they were all about.

Nova Heat Pumps and Air Conditioning is a family-owned business established by Brodie Sampson after retiring from a decade-long career as an airline captain. I was fortunate to meet Brodie’s father, Donald, and the team at a job site last Thursday—arguably the hottest day of the year so far. Despite the heat, their positive attitude and unwavering commitment to quality and customer satisfaction remained evident

Their services extend beyond just heating and cooling. As an authorized Mitsubishi Electric dealer, they ensure you receive top-of-the-line products known for their reliability and energy efficiency. This dedication to quality is a cornerstone of their business.

Supporting the local community is a core value at Nova Heat Pumps and Air Conditioning. They proudly sponsor local sports teams and events and actively participate in fundraising efforts to support community needs. One of their notable initiatives includes a radio campaign aimed at donating a heat pump to someone in need, highlighting their dedication to helping those who may not have the means to afford such improvements on their own.

The team at Nova Heat Pumps and Air Conditioning believes in providing fantastic customer service and strives to make every client happy. From start to finish, they are dedicated to ensuring your satisfaction with their work.

They love keeping in touch with the community. Follow them on social media for the latest updates, tips, and special offers! Your support helps them continue to provide excellent service and give back to the community. They look forward to serving you!

Canadian Chamber of Commerce

Canada is in a housing crisis. We don’t have enough units to meet our current or future needs, and demand outpacing supply continues to put pressure on the cost of a home.

According to the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, restoring affordability will require us to build 3.87 million new homes by 2031 (that’s in addition to what’s already in production), and it will cost roughly $1 trillion to do so!

Despite the almost $100 billion allocated to the problem via the National Housing Strategy, the 2023 Fall Economic Statement and Budget 2024, government will never get close to the investment needed — nor should it. But if government were to take a lesson from our southern neighbour, the United States, and tackle the problem of financial gridlock, it could enable the private sector to reach the necessary investment levels.
