Get year-round comfort using your home’s existing ductwork.* A ducted heat pump is ideal for:
Replacing an electric forced-air furnace
Energy-efficient addition to or replacement for other heating systems
Homes needing summer cooling and winter energy savings
Special offers and incentives can help reduce your out-of-pocket costs.
Constant comfort. Heat pumps keep temperatures even and also balance humidity to keep you comfortable
Energy savings of up to 40 percent**
Quiet inside and out
Even heating and cooling
Better indoor air quality because air is filtered more often inside and out
An electric air-source heat pump has an outdoor unit (1) that pulls heat from the outside air and moves it inside. Even when the temperature is low, there is heat in the air. A fan (2) delivers warm air through your ducts. In summer, the system works in reverse, cooling your home just like air conditioning.
Ductless heating and cooling has an outdoor unit (1) that pulls heat from the outside air and moves it inside. Even when the temperature is as low as 5° F, there is heat in the air. An indoor unit (2) senses where heat is needed and directs warm air in that direction. In summer, the system works in reverse, cooling your home just like air conditioning.
Get a $200 instant PGE discount when you have a PGE-approved contractor install an energy-efficient ducted or ductless heat pump or upgrade from an older, less efficient heat pump.
Heat pumps must be rated at a minimum ARI certified 8.2 HSPF (heating efficiency) and 14 SEER (cooling efficiency).
The system must meet PGE installation specifications. The PGE-approved contractor can also help you select the right size and model.
$700 Energy Trust incentive (minimum 8.5 HSPF)
An additional $250 Energy Trust incentive for installing advanced controls.
If you already have a ducted heat pump, you may qualify for a $250 Energy Trust incentive for installing advanced controls.
Ask your PGE-approved contractor about generous manufacturers’ rebates that may be available.
*Consider testing and sealing your ductwork, which may qualify for an Oregon energy tax credit . **Compared to a standard electric furnace. Individual circumstances will vary. Ask PGE or your dealer for more information.
¹Incentives are subject to change. Make sure your heat pump meets all qualifying criteria by consulting with a tax advisor and visiting EnergyTrust.org .
