We currently offer a rebate to members who add a new heat pump to their current heating system.
Products designated VRF/VRV air source heat pumps do not qualify for the CPI rebate at this time.
Why consider a heat pump? The electric heat pump is the most efficient heating system on the market today. Heat pumps offer clean, safe, reliable comfort all year long.
What will a heat pump do for you?
- Keep you warm during the winter
- Keep you cool in summer and save you money
- They are the most efficient heating system on the market today
- Keep you safe from carbon monoxide, a deadly byproduct of fuel burning
- Keep your home clean, by reducing the amount of airborne dust and mildew
- Keep your home dry, by dehumidifying the air inside your home

- Ceiling insulation R-19 minimum
- Duct insulation R-3 minimum
- Floor insulation R-11 minimum
