Ground-Source Heat Pumps for Homeowners & Small Businesses

Receive a rebate when you install a ground-source heat pump at your home or small business. Before you purchase, review the eligibility criteria and other program information.

Ground-source heat pumps (GSHPs) can provide cost-effective and energy-efficient heating, cooling, and water heating by utilizing the nearly constant temperature underground to heat or cool your home or business. Though they require electricity to operate, efficient GSHPs can provide the same amount of heating for 65% to 75% less than traditional electric resistance heating. Rebates of up to $7,500 are available.

From March through July of 2018, residents can purchase advanced air-source and ground-source heat pumps and wood pellet heating systems from installers selected for their high quality work and competitive pricing. Heat pumps have been in use in warmer climates for decades, but in the past few years have undergone a technology revolution and are now a great heat source in cold climates such as New England. These clean heating and cooling technologies can greatly reduce your greenhouse gas emissions, reduce your energy costs, and improve the comfort of your home.
