Idaho Power recently launched a new $300 incentive for homeowners to replace their existing electric-resistance storage water heater with a qualified heat pump water heater. The incentive is offered as part of the company’s Heating and Cooling Efficiency Program.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, heat pump water heaters are more efficient than conventional electric-resistance storage water heaters because they absorb heat from the surrounding air while transferring it to the water, instead of creating the heat using heating elements.
The Heating and Cooling Efficiency Program also offers incentives on duct sealing, high-efficiency air handler motors, evaporative coolers, heat pumps, smart thermostats and whole-house fans. Visit our Heating and Cooling page to learn more.
