Heat pump Upgrade Rebate Expires
Although experts agree, upgrading your current heat pump will pay for itself in energy savings alone, Puget Sound Energy is focusing their energy saving measures where they feel customers will see the largest benefit.
Heat Pump Energy Savings
Where you can save 10-20% of your energy savings by upgrading your current heat pump, you can capitalize on a whopping 70% or better by converting an electric furnace to a central heat pump system.
Think of it this way, if you have a 8.2 HSPF heat pump (standard), and you upgrade to a 10 HSPF, you are getting on average 10 BTU per watt of energy you consume, as opposed to 8.2 BTU per watt. This will result in an 18% increase in efficiency (21% savings). If you currently spend $1,000 to heat your home, you can expect to see over $200 in energy savings.
If that same home heats with just an electric forced air furnace, you would be paying nearly $2,500 per year in energy! Because electric forced air heat (electric resistance) is so inefficient, you would save $1,500 per year or more by simply installing a standard heat pump. If you convert from electric forced air to a 10 HSPF heat pump, you can expect savings of $1,700 or more.
