Ductless Heating and Cooling System - Save 25-50% on Heating Costs*

Ductless Heating and Cooling System - Save 25-50% on Heating Costs* logo

A highly efficient zonal heating and cooling system that does not require the use of ducts. Ductless heat pumps are an affordable, easy to install, technology that can dramatically reduce the energy wasted in homes heated by other less efficient electric heating like baseboard, wall heaters and electric furnaces. Since ductless systems can cool as well as heat, they provide year round comfort. Grays Harbor PUD is here to help with information and financial support.

  • Save 25-50% on your electric heating costs
  • A more comfortable home with reliable and efficient heating.
  • Comes standard with air conditioning

Duct Sealing Program – Save money, increase comfort, improve air quality

Duct Sealing Program – Save money, increase comfort, improve air quality logo

Ductwork that moves air to-and-from a forced air furnace, central air conditioner, or heat pump is often a big energy waster! Sealing and insulating ducts can improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling system by as much as 20%.

This upgrade involves having a trained PTCS (Performance Tested Comfort Systems) professional seal air leaks using mastic sealant or metal tape and insulating all accessible ducts (such as those in attics, crawlspaces, unfinished basements, and garages). Grays Harbor PUD is here to help you seal your ducts and we’ve created a program that will help you get it done right – and we’ll help you pay for it!

  • Make sure your heated/cooled air goes where it’s supposed to go!
  • Reduce hot and cold spots and have a more comfortable home.
  • This upgrade can pay for itself very quickly.
  • Improve the quality of your indoor air by sealing out contaminants that enter your living areas from attics, crawlspaces and garages as a result of leaky ductwork.

Is a Heat Pump Water Heater Right for You?
Heat pump water heaters pull warmth from the air and transfer the heat into the water stored in the tank. Hot water is ready to use while cool, dry air is vented out. Consider this if the unit is being installed inside the home. A more ideal location is a garage, basement, or other unconditioned space.

Most units require space around the water heater to allow effective air flow, but each manufacturer will have specific minimum requirements so please refer to manufacturer instructions.

Heat pump water heaters have compressors and fans that run three to four hours each day with noise levels similar to that of a microwave.

Heat pump water heaters have a filter that prevents dirt and dust from accumulating in the unit. To ensure efficient operation, thus the unit’s filter must be accessible for routine cleaning.
Eligibility
• New construction, existing single family, and manufactured homes qualify for the heat pump water heater (HPWH) rebate.
• In existing homes, the HPWH must replace an electric storage water heater.
• The new HPWH must be listed on the BPA Qualified Heat Pump Water Heater list.
• Only one rebate per residence will be paid within a 13 year period.
Requirements
• The HPWH must be installed according to both manufacturer and BPA specifications. Link to training: www.bpa.gov/go/hpwh
• Required permits are the responsibility of the contractor or homeowner. Check with local jurisdictions for required permits.
• Installations may be verified by GHPUD to ensure compliance with guidelines.
Steps to Participate
1. Confirm eligibility for your program and determine if a heat pump water heater is right for you.
2. Contact a participating contractor or retailer to install or buy your qualifying unit. A list of participating contractors and retailers along with installation information can be found at hotwatersolutionsnw.org.
3. Proceed with your installation.
4. Submit your project rebate application and invoices for final approval and rebate payment.

Is a Heat Pump Water Heater Right for You?
Heat pump water heaters pull warmth from the air and transfer the heat into the water stored in the tank. Hot water is ready to use while cool, dry air is vented out. Consider this if the unit is being installed inside the home. A more ideal location is a garage, basement, or other unconditioned space.

Most units require space around the water heater to allow effective air flow, but each manufacturer will have specific minimum requirements so please refer to manufacturer instructions.

Heat pump water heaters have compressors and fans that run three to four hours each day with noise levels similar to that of a microwave.

Heat pump water heaters have a filter that prevents dirt and dust from accumulating in the unit. To ensure efficient operation, thus the unit’s filter must be accessible for routine cleaning.
Eligibility
• New construction, existing single family, and manufactured homes qualify for the heat pump water heater (HPWH) rebate.
• In existing homes, the HPWH must replace an electric storage water heater.
• The new HPWH must be listed on the BPA Qualified Heat Pump Water Heater list.
• Only one rebate per residence will be paid within a 13 year period.
Requirements
• The HPWH must be installed according to both manufacturer and BPA specifications. Link to training: www.bpa.gov/go/hpwh
• Required permits are the responsibility of the contractor or homeowner. Check with local jurisdictions for required permits.
• Installations may be verified by GHPUD to ensure compliance with guidelines.
Steps to Participate
1. Confirm eligibility for your program and determine if a heat pump water heater is right for you.
2. Contact a participating contractor or retailer to install or buy your qualifying unit. A list of participating contractors and retailers along with installation information can be found at hotwatersolutionsnw.org.
3. Proceed with your installation.
4. Submit your project rebate application and invoices for final approval and rebate payment.
5. Enjoy your new efficient product and start planning your next project!
