Extended Capacity Heat Pumps

$650-$1,350 cash incentive

Extended capacity heat pumps operate the same way as standard heat pumps and provide year-round comfort and save considerable energy by moving heat in or out of your home, depending on the season. The advantage of this technology is that extended capacity heat pumps can operate at freezing temperatures without engaging inefficient backup heating systems, saving you even more in the winter months.

If you live in a manufactured home, you may qualify for a limited-time increased heat pump incentive. Visit our heat pump promotion page for additional information.
