Heat Pump Systems Now Eligible for HG&E Incentives

June 16, 2019:
If you are considering a new heating or cooling system for your home, heat pumps offer a single, energy efficient solution. The most common application, a mini split, can be found in multifamily housing, serve as a retrofit add-on to houses with "non-ducted" heating systems, or be a good choice for room additions and small apartments. Ducted mini splits can take advantage of existing ductwork and offer a viable alternative to central HVAC systems.

Like central systems, mini splits have two main components: an outdoor compressor/condenser, and an indoor air-handling unit. A conduit houses the power cable, refrigerant tubing, suction tubing, and a condensate drain, links the outdoor and indoor units.

Advantages of Mini Split Technology include:
  • Small, single device for heating and cooling
  • Climate flexibility for each room
  • Significant energy cost savings (compared to conventional electric heating and cooling systems)
  • Energy efficiency

Heat Pump Incentives & Rebates

HG&E’s Residential Energy Conservation Program: Mini splits, ducted and ductless, are now eligible for HG&E’s Energy Conservation Program. For a single family home, this program provides up to $5,000 in financial assistance at 0% interest for the implementation of energy efficient measures. 

MassCEC Whole-Home Air-Source Heat Pump Rebate Program: HG&E residential customers are eligible for a Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) rebate up to $5,000, based on income. This rebate is available for new construction homes and existing homes that are served by natural gas. 

If you are a commercial customer interested in heat pump technology, there are significant rebates available through HG&E’s Commercial Energy Conservation Program and MassCEC’s Clean Heating & Cooling Program.
