Heat pump sizing and lock-out control rebate
For electric customers
Receive a $300 rebate from PSE when you have your air-source heat pump sized and install lock-out control equipment in your home.
To be eligible for PSE's heat pump sizing and lock-out control rebate:
- You must be a current PSE residential electric customer.
- If you have an existing air-source heat pump or are installing a new one, you must provide PSE sizing documentation that indicates that your system is properly sized for your home. This must be completed by a qualified contractor.
- If you are installing a new air-source heat pump, it must be AHRI Certified® with a 9.0 HSPF/14 SEER rating or better.
- Your heat pump must be sized at 30 degrees Fahrenheit, and your heat pump lock-out control must be set to 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Existing heat pumps do not need to meet efficiency requirements for this rebate, but cannot be more than 12 years old.
- This rebate is only available with the use of new lock-out control equipment.
- Propane or natural gas furnaces that have been installed as auxiliary heat are not eligible.
For additional savings, this rebate can be combined with PSE's air-source heat pump rebate or forced-air furnace to air-source heat pump conversion rebate.
When available, PSE also recommends using natural gas directly for space and water heating. If you're interested in converting to natural gas, you may qualify for an additional fuel conversion rebate.

Heat pump sizing and lock-out control facts
Heat pump sizing is an energy efficiency procedure which verifies that your heating system is appropriately sized for the needs of your home. The evaluation is completed by a qualified contractor and can be performed on either a new or existing heat pump.
A lock-out control is a money-saving tool for heating your home after nights with sudden drops in temperature. It prevents less-efficient electric strip heat from turning on during timed warm-up cycles—usually in the morning—when your heat pump's more-efficient compression heat is capable of meeting your needs by itself.
