Better air quality
Get better equipment for less than you’d pay for standard heating and cooling gear with incentives from Chelan PUD—we’ll pay up to 100% for your new, installed, efficient ductless heat pump.

Heating, ventilation and cooling is likely one of your largest building expenses, but it doesn’t have to be. HVAC equipment and ongoing maintenance costs thousands, and the average business spends about half of its energy bills just to heat and cool.

Ductless heat pumps are two to three times more efficient than standard electric-resistance heaters, so you’ll save on your bills for years.

These PUD incentives often pay for your full project costs, with nothing out of pocket to you. Just in case, any upgrades beyond PUD incentives qualify for low-rate EnergySmart financing.
