Heat Pump Rebate 2019

VPPSA member customers are eligible for a $300 rebate on the purchase of a cold climate heat pump. If your home has been weatherized, you may be eligible for an additional $100 incentive.

How a Cold Climate Heat Pump Works

Heat pumps are versatile and efficient when it comes to heating or cooling your home. They work by extracting heat from the surrounding air and moving it to another location. In the summer, a heat pump will take heat from inside your home and displace it outside, effectively cooling the indoors. In the winter, it will take heat energy from outside (even when it's cold out) and bring it indoors.

Because temperatures in Vermont get so cold in the winter, it is still important to have a backup method of heating your home. How effective your heat pump is at low temperatures depends on the model you choose.
