  1. Cathy Richards says

    I have an 18 year old gas furnace, and want to install an electric air source heat pump so that I get the additional benefit of cooling in the summer. I don’t have air conditioning at present. So, switching from gas furnace to electric air pump means I don’t qualify for your rebate — there will be no reduction in electricity usage.

    Further, a federal eco-energy audit and follow-up audit would cost me $400, the same as the federal grant, so that doesn’t seem worthwhile either.

    Are there any rebates or incentive programs for me?
