If you install a ground source heating/cooling system that meets our efficiency requirements, we will reimburse you a one time only $750 rebate for every ton installed. The geothermal heat pump is a relatively new technology. The unit not only heats and cools your home, but heats most of the hot water you use. It is the most efficient heating and cooling source on the market. Requires a minimum 20 EER.
This is a heating and cooling system which joins a high efficiency air source heat pump with a fossil fuel furnace (gas, oil). The heat pump heats your house most of the time. When the outside temperature drops below 25 degrees, the gas furnace automatically kicks in. The advantage is that you pay less for heat when the heat pump is running and you, additionally, have central air. Members will be given a rebate $150.00/ton rebate for the installation of Dual Fuel Heat PUmp unit. The unit must be a minimum of 17 SEER.
Air to Air Heat Pump:
Members who install an air to air heat pump with electric backup will be given a $200/ton rebate. The unit must be energy star rated.
