Heat Pumps

$250-$700 cash incentive

Heat pumps provide year-round comfort and save considerable energy by moving heat in or out of your home, depending on the season. Because heat pumps move heat instead of generating it, these systems are highly efficient. Receive cash incentives and lower your energy costs when you upgrade your electric heating system to a high-efficiency heat pump.

  1. Establish your eligibility.
