Use less energy to cool your home and get cash back.
Heating your home with electric resistance heat (such as baseboard heat, ceiling and wall heat or electric forced air furnaces) may mean you’re faced with high energy costs every month. If you’re considering a change, think about going ductless. A ductless heat pump, also known as a mini-split heat pump, is a highly efficient zonal heating and cooling system that does not require the use of air ducts. The system consists of an outdoor compressor unit and one or more indoor air-handling units, typically mounted high on a wall or ceiling, linked by a refrigerant line. Because the system is so efficient, choosing ductless can cut your heating bills by as much as 50 percent and provide reliable and comfortable heat. And because ductless systems excel at distributing warm or cool air throughout the home, they can help keep you comfortable and cool during warmer months too. Ductless heat pump units have the added advantage of not needing invasive and expensive ductwork installed, so have a short installation period of one to two days.
Energy Saving Benefits
- Cut heating costs by up to 50 percent when you choose a ductless heat pump over electric or forced air heating systems
- Save money by dramatically decreasing your electricity use
- Avoid greenhouse gas emission by using less electricity to cool your home
- Promote cleaner air through more efficient energy use
Prior to starting a project, find a trade ally using the Wyoming HVAC Program Trade Allies list. Note that select incentives must be completed by a qualified program trade ally. Review the incentive application with your trade ally to determine eligibility requirements, incentive qualifications and review the list of required documents to submit for an incentive.
Incentive application and required documents must be postmarked within 90 days of the work completed date. Incentive checks are issued within 45 days of receipt of the completed and approved incentive application. Checks are only payable to the account holder. Incentives are not to exceed the purchase price of the equipment or service. Equipment and service work may be inspected for compliance. Incentives are subject to tariff approval and may change with 45 days notice. Additional terms and conditions may apply.
