Residential Heat Pump Rebates 

Your Energy Advantage® Heat Pump Program

Heat pumps are one of the most efficient ways to heat your home. Tillamook PUD offers residential customers a rebate when installing a qualifying heat pump in a new home or converting an electric heating system to an energy efficient heat pump. Heat pumps must be installed by a Tillamook PUD-approved dealer.

Tillamook PUD will provide an energy audit on existing residences to determine other eligible measures for the home. Insulation of ceilings, floors, walls, and Energy Star® replacement windows are among the measures that may be recommended. After the audit, Tillamook PUD will send the customer an energy analysis.

Ductless Heat Rebates for Single Family Residences

A ductless heat pump system is a highly efficient system that is easily installed as a new primary heat source for electrically heated homes.  Ductless systems have three major parts: an indoor unit mounted on a wall, and 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″ 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.
