Some customers may only need one or two units, whereas others may want to outfit their whole home with heat pumps. In addition, some units may be more energy efficient than others and may cost more, but they often pay for themselves by lowering energy costs and through tax incentives and rebates. Costs to install a single heat pump can start around $4,000, while whole home solutions can start around $15,000. Each home is unique, which is why our consultants will come to your home, listen to your goals, measure your spaces, answer all of your questions, and will deliver a custom quote to your email. Ultimately heat pumps are one of the best investments homeowners can make in the efficiency, comfort, and value of their home.
