Ground Source Heat Pump Rebate

What is a Ground Source Heat Pump?

Whether you are retrofitting an existing system or installing it in a new home, a ground source heat pump is an excellent choice. These systems can have efficiencies that approach 350-400% making them far and away the most economical system you could install. Another bonus is that your system can provide an inexpensive supply of hot water. In addition all heat pumps reverse to provide cooling during those hot summer days.

At Flathead Electric Cooperative we can help you evaluate your existing heating system to determine the best upgrade option for your new or existing home. Call your trusted energy advisor at Flathead Electric to find a solution to your comfort and heating cost problems.
