A ductless heating and cooling system is a highly efficient zonal heating and cooling system that does not require the use of air ducts. Ductless systems consist of an outdoor compressor unit and one or more indoor air-handling units, called “heads”, linked by a dedicated refrigerant line. Indoor heads are typically mounted high on a wall or ceiling covering a 3-inch hole where the refrigerant line passes through from the outside unit, which is mounted at the base of the house. Each indoor head corresponds with a heating and cooling zone that can be controlled independently.
NOTE: Generally bids from installers do not include the electrical costs.

Utilities Operations has rebates available through the Bonneville Power Administration to help businesses upgrade their electrical systems. This includes systems such as lighting, compressors, motor, pump, refrigeration systems. For businesses with electrical heating systems, rebates are also available for insulation upgrades for floors, walls, and ceilings.
Funding is limited. Projects will be taken on a first come first serve basis until funding is fully committed.
We have a small business program that pays a higher incentive level for businesses under 20,000 sq. ft. Projects will be paid $0.23 per kWh and are not subject to the 70% of project cost cap so incentives will cover more of the project costs.
All projects require an agreement prior to starting the project so give us a call today to schedule a site consultation.
