High Efficiency Air-Source Heat Pumps

Tier 1 $350 or $500 Rebate on a Qualifying New Heat Pump!
According to ENERGY STAR®, your home’s central heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system is responsible for nearly 50 percent of the energy consumed in your home. Danville Utilities Home$ave makes it easier on your wallet for you to make your home more comfortable in the summer and the winter all while saving money on your heating and cooling costs.

Residential electric customers are eligible for a $350 or $500 mail-in rebate on the purchase of a qualifying new High-Efficiency Air-Source Heat Pump by submitting a Rebate Application with required proof of purchase and equipment specifications.

ENERGY STAR air-source heat pump models have higher seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) and energy efficiency ratio (EER) ratings than conventional models.They also have a higher Heating and Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF), which measures the heating efficiency of the heat pump, making them about 9% percent more efficient than standard new models and 20% more efficient then what you may have in your home.
