ENERGY STAR® Qualified Geothermal Heat Pump Rebate
Get a $1,500 rebate from PSE for an ENERGY STAR qualified geothermal heat pump.
What is a geothermal heat pump?
Geothermal heat pumps are one of the most energy-efficient, environmentally-friendly heating and cooling systems available.
A geothermal heat pump delivers clean, quiet heating or cooling comfort to your home all year round by harnessing the temperature difference between soil and indoor air. The system is composed of three elements: the air handler, the exchanger and the ground loop. In winter, the exchanger collects cool interior air, which lowers the temperature of a fluid in sealed pipes.
The fluid is pumped through underground pipes buried in soils that remain at a relatively constant temperature. The cool fluid is warmed by ground temperatures and returns to the exchanger. From there, air warmed by the fluid circulates through the home by way of the air handler.
- Must install ENERGY STAR qualified equipment
- Cannot have an existing geothermal heat pump installed
- Auxiliary heating sources do not qualify for additional rebates
- Rebate application must be submitted within 30 days of equipment installation
