Save on a Central Air-Source Heat Pump

Central air-source heat pumps provide clean, efficient cooling and heating using your building’s existing ductwork. With thousands in rebates available, it’s never been easier—or more affordable—to switch to make your space more efficient and eco-friendly.

How it Works

A heat pump moves existing heat in the air from one place to another using electricity. In summer, it moves heat from inside a building to the outside like an air conditioner. In winter, it works in reverse, extracting heat from outside to bring it into a building.

A central air-source heat pump is great for buildings with existing central-air-conditioner systems that need to be replaced, or new construction projects. A heat pump can also provide heat in the winter, which can heat your building more cleanly than your existing, fossil-fuel fired furnace.


  • Uses energy more effectively. Air-source heat pumps concentrate and transfer heat rather than generating it directly, delivering one-and-a-half to three times more heat energy to a building than the electrical energy they consume.
  • Dual heat-and-cooling system
  • Reduced maintenance costs
  • Whisper quiet
  • Lower emissions
  • Filters and dehumidifies the air

Ready to save?

Find a participating contractor in the New York State Clean Heat Program. Your contractor will help find and install your heat pump, and deduct your rebate from the total project cost.

Get Custom Rebates

You may qualify for thousands in incentives when you upgrade your existing ducted system or install a central air-source heat pump in your new building:

  • $2,000/10,000 Btu/h
  • $200/MMBTU of annual energy savings

If your building is in the area affected by the Westchester natural gas moratorium, you can receive an incentive increase of 30% above the current incentive rates. Category 1 (partial load cold climate air source heat pump) and Category 9 projects (simultaneous installation of space heating water heating) are not eligible for additional rebates.
