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 snopud.com/heating.
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.
