Ductless System Incentive
Why Upgrade to a Ductless Heating and Cooling System?
- Save energy and money while heating your home during the winter months.
- Make your home more comfortable.
- Systems come standard with air conditioning—no more window units!
If you have cable ceiling heat, baseboard heat, an electric furnace or wall heaters, you’re probably using too much energy to heat your home. We’re helping qualified customers upgrade to a ductless heating and cooling system that uses a fraction of the electricity and provides more comfort than outdated systems.
Let us Help You!
If you are a homeowner who currently heats your home with cable ceiling heat, baseboard heaters or wall heaters, you may receive a rebate to help pay for an upgrade, as well as 3.5 percent financing. Site-built and manufactured homes heated with an electric furnace also qualify. Eligible homeowners will receive the rebate once the system is installed. A typical system can cost $4,000–$6,000.
Ductless Heat Pump Rebates:
- $500 Incentive for the installation of a single head system (9.0 or greater HSPF)
To Qualify for Your Rebate:
Home must be a single-family or manufactured home and currently use electric resistance heat* as the primary heat source.
One indoor unit must be installed in the primary living area of the home, must displace electric resistance heat, have a heating seasonal performance factor (HSPF) of 9.0 or greater and be installed by a qualified contractor.
We also offer loans for Ductless heat pumps.
*Examples of electric resistance heat include baseboards, ceiling heat, wall heat and electric forced-air furnaces.
Installations in previously unconditioned spaces such as garages, attics, or home additions do not qualify for incentives. Ductless heat pump installations in homes that are primarily heated by gas also do not qualify for incentives.
Savings Within Reach
Income-qualified residents in Oregon may be eligible for increased cash incentives through Savings Within Reach for a qualifying ductless heat pump installed by a participating contractor. Special requirements apply.
Newly built homes, new additions and homes with existing heat pumps, boilers or gas furnaces do not qualify for this incentive. Limit one ductless heat pump incentive per home.
If you live in a manufactured home, you may qualify for a limited-time increased heat pump incentive of $2,500.
Single-Family Rental Properties
If you own or manage a single-family rental property, you may qualify for limited-time increased incentives. To qualify, you must hire a participating Instant Incentive Energy Trust trade ally contractor trained to provide services for rental properties. Homes cannot be owner occupied.
Through December 31, 2020, single-family rental properties across Oregon may be eligible for a special promotional price and increased incentive between $1,750-$2,000 on a ductless heat pump professionally installed in the living room. Work with one of our participating trade allies and incentives will be paid directly to your contractor who will deduct the incentive amount from your invoice, reducing your out-of-pocket costs to $2,500 or less.
