A ductless heat pump (DHP) can heat and cool your home, keeping you comfortable all year. Until Sept. 30, 2017, you could qualify for an $800 rebate toward the purchase and installation of a DHP.
A Ductless Heat Pump Will:
- Heat AND cool your home
- Save you up to 50% on heating costs
- Operate quietly and efficiently
- Cost you as little as $3,000 after rebate
You may also be eligible for a Zero-Interest Loan or our Grant Program. With our seven-year, zero-interest loan, payments come to just $35 per month and are largely offset by the amount you'll save on monthly heating costs.
Also, look for additional manufacturer rebates that may apply to your purchase.
Applications received after September 30 will be eligible for a $500 rebate and a zero interest loan (up to $3,400 of the costs after the $500 rebate is applied).
What Is A Ductless Heat Pump?A ductless heat pump (DHP) is an efficient, affordable, all-in-one heating and cooling system. A DHP works with your existing electric heating and cooling system to make your home more comfortable.
DHPs have three components:
- An Indoor Unit: mounted on a centrally-located wall in your main living area. Just one system is enough to evenly and efficiently heat and cool the main living area of your home.
- An Outdoor Unit: connects to the indoor unit with a small bundle of cables, including a refrigerant line. The unit is placed outside your home on the ground level. You don't need expensive ductwork as these cables only require a three-inch hole in your wall.
- A Remote Control: allows you to adjust your settings as you wish.
