Heat Pump Rebates

CAEC offers rebates on dual fuel systems and mini-split systems for both standard and manufactured homes. Mini-split systems do have minimum SEER(1) ratings. In addition, we offer rebates for new and existing manufactured homes replacing an electric furnace with a heat pump. Rebate qualifications are below. For more information, contact us at 1-800-545-5735 ext. 2118.

  • $350 per ton for 15 SEER or greater

Manufactured Homes:

New Manufactured Homes:

  • 2 to 2.5 tons- $400
  • 3 to 4 tons- $600
  • 5 tons- $700

  • Proof of purchase of the unit (invoice)

Definitions: (1)SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating): Shows the efficiency of a unit during a particular season (cooling). The higher the SEER rating, the more efficient the unit will work. (2)EER (Energy Efficiency Rating): Shows the efficiency of a unit that doesn’t require the outside air, therefore is not based on seasons. (3)Air-to-Air Heat Pump: a heat pump with a unit outside that uses outside air to cool and heat the home – it uses electric strips for supplemental heating when it is extremely cold outside. (4)Dual Fuel Heat Pump: Works just like an Air-to-Air heat pump, but uses gas back-up instead of the electric heat strips. (5)Ductless Mini-Split Heat Pump: also known as “mini-splits” and “zoned HVAC,” are a type of heating and cooling system that doesn’t need any ducts to condition the air.)
