Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning

Heat Pumps

Upgrading your HVAC system can save energy, lower your utility bills, improve your home’s comfort and indoor air quality. When replacing electric resistance space heating, heat pumps can be up to four times more energy-efficient. Replacing a propane or natural gas heater is a great way to reduce the emissions from your household appliances and eliminate the need for refilling tanks.

Hot Water – Heat Pumps

Energy-efficient heat pump water heaters can help save energy and save money over the lifetime of the system. The latest electric heat pump water heaters can be up to three times more energy-efficient than standard electric ones, helping you save long-term. Newer models also let you customize your settings based on your lifestyle.

Used or rebuilt equipment is not eligible.

Existing equipment is not required except for Fuel Substitution Equipment rebates.

  • Incentives may be available for equipment not listed in this catalog for items such as heat pump pool heaters, showerheads, faucet aerators, and more. Contact an RCEA representative if you are considering any energy upgrades.
