Commercial Air-Source Heat Pump Retrofit and Upgrades
An Air-Source Heat Pump Retrofit replaces an existing electric-resistance heating system with an efficient electric air source heat pump (e.g., adds an electric air source heat pump to a system where one did not previously exist).
An Air-Source Heat Pump Upgrade either: 1) replaces an existing electric air source heat pump with a more efficient electric air source heat pump; or 2) is an efficient electric air source heat pump installed as part of a building addition project, new construction project or major renovation project.
Requirements and Specifications
- These measures cannot be used to retrofit packaged terminal air conditioning (PTAC) units.
Preconditions – Heat Pump Retrofit:
- The space is conditioned by zonal or forced-air, electric-resistance heat as the primary heating source. No other heating sources are eligible.
Preconditions – Heat Pump Upgrade:
- The space is conditioned by an operational or failed air source heat pump; or
- The space is part of a building addition, new construction, or a major renovation project.
The installed heat pump must:
- Be an air-to-air heat pump;
- Have an AHRI certificate of product rating; and
- Meet CPI’s efficiency requirements for both heating and cooling per the table below;
- Must complete and submit the Incentive Form and copies of all invoices.
- Air-source Heat Pump Retrofit – $1,000 per ton
- Air-source Heat Pump Upgrade – $150 per ton
Rebate amounts and program requirements are subject to change without notice. All homes or businesses are subject to inspection and usage data analyzed by participating in energy efficiency programs. Any rebates will be applied to past due amounts owed CPI before payment is issued.
