Heat Pumps

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 Performance Tested Comfort Systems (PTCS) certified technician. 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:

  • Basic Ducted Heat Pump (HSPF 8.2/SEER 14): $300
  • High Efficiency Heat Pump (HSPF 9+):
    • New Construction/Replacement/Upgrade: $500
    • Adding to existing Electric Forced Air Furnace: $1,000
  • Variable Speed Ducted Heat Pump (HSPF 9+):
    • New Construction/Replacement/Upgrade: $500
    • Adding to existing Electric Forced Air Furnace: $1,400
  • 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 greater for single or multi-head systems.
  • Contractor must be listed on Inland Power's approved contractor network.

Homes with natural gas or propane forced air systems (air source or geothermal), do not qualify.
