Heat Pump Rebates

Overview

Using a heat pump is an energy-efficient way to both heat and cool your home. Compared with electric resistance heating such as a furnace or baseboard heaters, a heat pump can reduce your electricity use for heating by 25-50%. That can add up to big savings on your utility bill.

A heat pump uses an outdoor compressor that is connected to a furnace that pushes air through ducts in your home and out of the vents in your rooms. The temperature is controlled by a single thermostat. During colder months, a heat pump supplies even and consistent heat while using less electricity than other electric heating options. In the warmer months, the system keeps your home cool and comfortable while also dehumidifying the air. Plus, its built-in air filter helps improve indoor air quality.

We offer eligible property owners a $1,000 rebate towards the purchase and installation of a qualifying high-efficiency heat pump.
