Packaged Terminal Heat Pumps (PTHP)

Packaged Terminal Heat Pumps (PTHP) logo

Commercial Packaged Terminal Heat Pumps (PTHPs) are an HVAC equipment
type commonly used in lodging applications. A PTHP retrofit replaces a
Packaged Terminal Air Conditioner (PTAC) or zonal electric-resistance heating.

*Photo courtesy of LG

  • Packaged Terminal Heat Pumps (PTHPs) are an efficient replacement for Packaged Terminal Air Conditioners (PTACs), often found in commercial buildings with small living spaces. Both offer similar air-cooling performance; however, instead of electric resistance heating elements, PTHPs use energy-saving heat pump technology for consistent, even warmth inside when the weather cools. Compact and easy to install, these units are ideal for senior living facilities and commercial lodging establishments.

Incentive Information

Incentives available from $100 to $500 per packaged Terminal Heat Pump depending on existing equipment and project type.

This allows multiple indoor units to be connected using a common refrigerant line, rather than needing separate lines between each indoor unit and the indoor unit.

  • Ongoing savings opportunity
  • Temperature control in smaller zones
  • Smaller equipment footprint
  • Lighter equipment - reduced structural requirements

Custom Commercial Projects Program

Custom Commercial Projects Program logo

To support energy savings in this highly variable sector, GHPUD supports custom energy efficiency projects. Custom projects encompass retrofit, new construction efficiency projects, and energy management specific to the needs of each customer.

The program provides rebates for any project with verifiable electric energy savings, including large projects for commercial, industrial, and agricultural customers. Rebates are determined based on actual energy savings up to $0.18/kWh and cannot exceed 50% of the total project cost.

  • Some examples of projects include:
  • Variable Frequency Drive for Pumps, Fans, Motors & Compressors
  • Commercial Shell Measures
  • New Construction
  • HVAC Controls
Print

Incentive Information

Rebates are determined based on actual energy savings* up to $0.18/kWh and cannot exceed 50% of the total project cost.

*Energy savings are determined using BPA's Measurement and Verification protocols. M/V Protocol: Before efficiency measure is installed, existing electrical consumption is measured. Based on this measurement and estimated energy savings, an estimated incentive is calculated. During post-installation measurement of efficiency project, energy savings are verified, these verified energy savings will be calculated into the actual incentive for the project.

*Grays Harbor PUD reserves the right to revise program rules and guidelines, including discontinuing all or part of the available incentives at any time and without prior notice. All projects once approved, will be subject to the guidelines and incentives in place at the time of approval.
Steps to Participate
