Heat Pump Advanced Controls

$50—$150 cash incentive

Your electric furnace may be adding to your energy costs by working to warm up your home before your heat pump has a chance to kick in. Heat pump advanced controls prevent your furnace from turning on when it is not needed. Installing heat pump advanced controls for your existing system can save up to $95 on annual heating costs and helps you maintain a comfortable home without having to buy a new heat pump.

  1. Establish your eligibility.

    You must live in Oregon and heat your home with electricity provided by Portland General Electric or Pacific Power.

  2. Select a contractor and have the work completed.

    To receive an Energy Trust cash incentive, contact a qualified, energy-efficiency-trained Energy Trust trade ally contractor or any contractor with a current Oregon Construction Contractors Board license.

  3. Submit your incentive application within 60 days of installation.

    In order to complete your application, you’ll need to enter information such as the installation date, equipment serial/model number, and efficiency rating, as well as include a scan or legible digital photo of your contractor’s invoice and Check Me! certification (if applicable).

    If you install the thermostat yourself, you will need a copy of your purchase receipt instead of an invoice and must send your signed and completed Form 320S.

    Often, your contractor will help you complete the application form. Please allow six to eight weeks for incentive processing and payment.
