Heat pumps provide savings and comfort

High efficiency heat pump technology can reduce energy costs while cooling and heating your home. Heat pumps provide year-round comfort, making your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

The Smart-E Loan offers low rates and flexible terms for the installation of a qualifying heat pump technology, including: ductless mini splits, air source heat pumps, heat pump hot water heaters, and geothermal/ground source heat pumps.

A heat pump is a super-efficient, economical, and environmentally-friendly way to heat and cool your home for year-round comfort.
