Heat pumps are one of the most energy efficient types of heating available today. A properly installed heat pump can deliver one-and-a-half to four times more heat energy to a home than it consumes. This is possible because heat pumps move heat rather than convert it from fuels such as natural gas, oil or propane.
Inland is pleased to offer two heat pump rebate programs; ducted and ductless heat pumps.
DUCTED HEAT PUMPS
Ducted units must be installed by a contractor approved by the NW HVAC Association. This program is important as the test results, required by Inland, ensure the system is functioning at top performance resulting in increased comfort and energy savings. In addition to performance optimization, our contractor network offers a two-year warranty guaranteeing proper function of the installed heat pump system effective the date of installation.
Inland offers several rebate options depending on the system that works for your home and/or budget:
High Efficiency Air Source Heat Pump (HSPF 9+ or HSPF2 7.6 (min):
Adding to existing Electric Forced Air Furnace: $1,000
Variable Speed Ducted Heat Pump (HSPF 9+ or HSPF2 7.6 (min):
New Construction/Replacement: $200
Adding to existing Electric Forced Air Furnace: $1,200
Ground Source Heat Pump: $2,500
DUCTLESS HEAT PUMPS
Ductless units (DHP), otherwise known as a mini-split system, is a highly efficient heating and cooling system. It is easily installed as a new primary heat source for electrically heated homes. These systems heat and cool homes at a fraction of the cost of electric resistance heat. DHP's are safer, quieter and heat rooms evenly by using an ultra-quiet fan.
DHP's do not require expensive and invasive duct-work. Installation is as simple as mounting the indoor and outdoor units, connecting refrigerant lines, and making a few electrical connections.
Inland offers an $800 rebate (one rebate per metered home) for units installed by a certified technician.
The Ductless Heat Pump system must:
Replace electric resistant heat (zonal, forced air or hydronic).
Have a Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF) of 9 or HSPF2 7.6 (min) greater for single or multi-head systems.
Contractor must be a licensed HVAC contractor.
Homes with natural gas or propane forced air systems (air source or geothermal), do not qualify.

Homeowner installs are not eligible for any Inland Power heating and cooling rebates.
IS DUCTLESS RIGHT FOR YOU?
Ductless heating and cooling systems distribute warm air more evenly and efficiently than traditional electric heaters. They reduce electric heating costs by 25-50% while also providing efficient air conditioning. The linked chart compares electric heating options in the Northwest.
