High-Efficiency Home Heating

High-Efficiency Home Heating

Chances are your home’s heating system accounts for the largest portion of your yearly electrical bill. Upgrading to a high-efficiency heat pump is one of the best ways to lower energy consumption in your home. If you currently heat with electricity (baseboards, wall heaters, electric furnace, or older heat pump), you may be eligible to take part in one of Central Lincoln’s heat pump programs.

High Efficiency Air Source Heat Pump Program

Heat pumps are one of the most efficient options for home heating. HeatHeatPump pumps that are installed and maintained properly can reduce the amount of energy required to heat a home by up to 40 percent, compared to electric furnaces, baseboard heaters, and fan-forced wall heaters. And a bonus is that heat pumps also cool homes on hot summer days.  Heat pumps operate very well in climates such as Oregon’s Central Coast.  Unlike other electric systems, heat pumps don’t use electricity to make heat. Instead, heat pumps capture heat from the air outside.  During those rare times when temperatures here drop to near-freezing or below, heat pumps rely on built-in back up heat, which can result in efficiency loss.  (Built-in back up heat can be provided by electricity or natural gas.) For more information and to ensure your project qualifies, prior to beginning your project, please call our Energy Experts at 888-883-9879.

Ductless Heat Pump Program

A ductless heat pump system is a highly efficient system that is easily Sanyo_livinginstalled as a new primary heat source for electrically heated homes. Ductless systems have three major parts; an indoor unit mounted on a wall, an outdoor unit that sits on the ground, and a remote control that controls the unit. The indoor and outdoor units are connected by a small bundle of cables, including a refrigerant line. These cables require a 3-inch hole in the wall for installation. Ductless systems have an ultra-quiet fan that circulates air evenly throughout living areas, eliminating hot and cold spots.

To qualify for a Central Lincoln rebate of $1,000, your home must have electric heat, and the ductless heat pump must be installed by an authorized ductless heat pump dealer.
