Snohomish PUD offers customers ways to save money on heat pumps


With cooler fall temperatures, we all can expect higher energy bills to heat our homes. For customers with electrically-heated homes, the PUD offers instant rebates of up to $1,500 to help pay for eligible heat pumps.

These systems offer efficient heating in the winter and cooling in the summer. Customers must have electric heat as a primary heating source to qualify. Work also must be completed by a PUD Registered Trade Ally.

Many ductless heat pump manufacturers also offer up to $450 in additional discounts on their systems through Nov. 30, 2018. For more information, visit

Other fall energy-saving tips from PUD:

  • Set the heat at 68 degrees when you’re home and awake, and set it at 55 degrees when you’re away or sleeping.
  • On sunny winter days, open the blinds and drapes on south-facing windows to let the sun shine into your home.
  • Dress warmer — throw on a sweater or cuddle up with a blanket on the couch.
  • Wash your laundry in less water and/or cold water.
  • Use your microwave and toaster more often instead of your oven and range.
