Heat Pump Energy Efficiency Rebate Program

For climates with moderate heating and cooling needs, heat pumps offer an energy-efficient alternative to furnaces and air conditioners. Like your refrigerator, heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate it, heat pumps operate at as little as one quarter the cost of conventional heating or cooling appliances.

Ductless Heat Pump Rebates

Ultra-quiet Ductless Heat Pump

Ultra-quiet Ductless Heat Pump (DHP) systems distribute warm air more evenly and efficiently than traditional electric heaters.  A single indoor unit can heat and cool a large living space, making these systems especially suitable for homes with open floor plans. Ductless systems do not require expensive and invasive ductwork, so you can maintain your room’s original aesthetic of your room. A ductless installation is hassle-free and can be completed in half a day. They reduce electric heating costs by 25% to 50% while also providing efficient air conditioning.

Ducted Air Source Heat Pumps

Two people giving thumbs up

Like ductless heat pumps, ducted heat pumps rely on an outdoor compressor to function. The difference between a ducted and a ductless heat pump is that the ducted heat pump connects to a single air handler (furnace) that pushes air through a series of ducts, which gets exhausted through vents throughout your home to keep it warm. Temperature is controlled by a single thermostat. Ducted heat pumps can reduce power consumption by 25 – 50% compared to electric resistance heating in furnaces and baseboard heaters. High-efficiency heat pumps also dehumidify better than standard central air conditioners, resulting in less energy usage and more cooling comfort in summer months. Several rebate options available. Limitations apply.
