PUD Expands Ductless Heat Pump Incentives
Everett, WA – There’s great news this fall that will help more people save money as the weather cools down. Snohomish County PUD has expanded its ductless heat pump incentives, effective Oct. 15, 2012, to manufactured homes and homes with existing ductwork. Homes need to have electric heat as their primary heating source to qualify.
Under the PUD program, qualifying customers can receive an $800 incentive or a low-interest loan of up to $6,000. Ductless heat pumps make a smart investment, saving customers 25 to 50 percent on winter heating bills. In addition, the unit’s ultra-quiet fan evenly circulates air, eliminating hot and cold spots in rooms and improving the comfort of main living spaces.
Installation is quick and simple, which means little disruption to your home. Plus, a more efficient heating system is good for the environment, too.
What is a ductless heat pump?
A ductless heat pump is a highly efficient heating and cooling system. It is easily installed as a new primary heat source for electrically heated homes. Ductless heat pumps are much safer, quieter and heat rooms evenly. Ductless systems heat and cool homes at a fraction of the cost of baseboards and wall heaters and do not require expensive and invasive ductwork. They require only a three-inch opening in the wall or ceiling. Installation is as simple as mounting the indoor and outdoor units, connecting the refrigerant lines, and making a few electrical connections.
