Ductless Heat Pump Rebates
Installing an efficient ductless heat pump (DHP) allows you to heat and cool your home while using less energy and lowering your utility bill. Compared with traditional electric baseboard or electric forced air furnaces, DHPs use 25-50% less energy, which means significant annual savings for you. DHPs are also reliable, easy to operate using a remote control and provide consistent heat. DHPs have built-in air filters to keep equipment clean and improve indoor air quality. and They use ultra-quiet fans to reduce noise common to other heating and cooling systems.
A DHP includes two main parts: an indoor unit and an outdoor unit. The indoor unit is mounted on the wall in your main living area. It is connected to the outdoor unit, which is placed on ground level, with copper pipes and electrical wiring. Connecting the units only requires making a three-inch hole in your exterior wall, so installation is relatively easy. In contrast to central heat pumps, DHPs do not require you to install a duct system throughout your house.
