Heat Pump Rebates

CAEC offers rebates on dual fuel systems and mini-split systems for both standard and manufactured homes. The minimum SEER(1) rating allowed is 15 on standard homes. In addition, we offer rebates for new and existing manufactured homes replacing an electric furnace with a heat pump.

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.)
