Ductless Heat Pumps
The City of Milton is offering rebates for Ductless mini-split heating and cooling systems for City of Milton customers.
Heat pumps are an efficient, economical, and environmentally friendly way to heat and cool your home. Depending on your home type, budget, and needs, a ducted air source heat pump or a ductless heat pump might work best for you.
Before beginning your project, please contact our Conservation Coordinators at DKS for details, requirements, qualifications, and information on possible rebates you may be eligible for. Duct Sealing may be required, so check with your Comfort Ready Home certified contractor to schedule a duct test to determine if the duct sealing measure applies.
Ductless Heat Pumps
The typical cost for a ductless heat pump is $3,500-$6,000, including installation. The simple payback period for ductless heat pumps is typically 4-8 years for a system anticipated to last 15-20 years.
Ductless Heat Pumps distribute heat from one or multiple indoor units installed throughout the home. They are very efficient, do not require ductwork, and give you the ability to control the temperature in different areas of your house.
The City of Milton offers Heat Pump Upgrade and Heat Pump Conservation rebates up to $800.00 for Single Family and Manufactured Homes with electric heat.
Air Source Heat Pumps
The total cost for Air Source Heat Pumps depends on the size and efficiency of the system, and complexity of the installation.
Ducted Air Source Heat Pumps connect to your home’s existing air ducts. Heat pump technology allows the system to offer a more efficient alternative to traditional electric furnaces and plug in space heaters.
The City of Milton offers Air Source Heat Pump Conservation Rebates up to $1,600. for homes with electric heat.
