Why Make The Switch?

Recent technology advancements have made air-source heat pumps (ASHP) a valid option for homes with cold winters like ours. Because an ASHP moves heat rather than converting it from fuel, it’s one of the most energy-efficient heating and cooling systems available.

  • ASHPs work on an innovative principle: Instead of directly producing heat to keep you warm through the winter, a heat pump will find heat energy in the outside air and move (pump) it into your home.
  • Today’s ASHPs can effectively heat a home when the outside temperature is at or above 25° F, which equals about 65% of all heating hours in Minnesota. If properly set, it can serve as the primary heating source for a good part of our Minnesota winters.
  • During the summer, an ASHP operates like a conventional air conditioner by removing heat and humidity from your home.

The benefits of ASHPs include:

  • Energy efficient: ASHPs deliver one-to-three times more energy than the electricity they consume.
  • Versatile: ASHPs can heat your home in the winter and cool your home in the summer.
  • Cost effective: ASHPs can help lower your fuel bills, especially if you are replacing an older, inefficient heating and cooling system.
  • Easy: ASHPs are easy to install and require little maintenance.

Dakota Electric’s rebate on ASHPs is based on the SEER rating, a measure of efficiency. Members who install a qualifying ASHP between April 1 and September 30, 2022, can more than double or triple the usual rebate.

Members must use a registered contractor to install the unit to qualify for a rebate. Rebate applications are available only through registered contractors. Search for a qualified contractor.

A ductless air-source heat pump can be an efficient heating and cooling solution for rooms without ductwork. Choose an ENERGY STAR® compliant unit and hire an installer familiar with the product and installation. From April 1 – September 30, 2022, Dakota Electric is offering members an increased rebate on the purchase and installation of a ductless air-source heat pump.
