Heat Pump Replacement

Today’s heat pumps are much more energy efficient than they were just 10 years ago. Replacing a 12- to 15-year-old unit with a new high-efficiency heat pump could save you up to 30 percent on your energy bill.

Duke Energy will pay up to $350 when you upgrade your old heat pump or heat strip.

Rebates for high-efficiency heat pumps

Heat pump manufacturers use two rating systems to measure how effectively a unit heats or cools – the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) and Heating Season Performance Factor (HSPF). The higher the numbers, the better the unit will perform.

Duke Energy offers the following rebates when you install a new high-efficiency heat pump:

If you are replacing a resistance heat (strip heat):

  • Install a heat pump with minimum 14 SEER and 7.8 HSPF – $250 credit
  • Install a heat pump with minimum 15 SEER and 8.0 HSPF – $350 credit

 

If you are replacing an older, less-efficient heat pump:

  • Install a heat pump with minimum 14 SEER and 7.8 HSPF – $100 credit
  • Install a heat pump with minimum 15 SEER and 8.0 HSPF – $150 credit

 

For customers installing a new air conditioner with non-electric heat:

  • Install an air conditioning unit with minimum 14 SEER – $50 credit
