Heartland offers rebates for the purchase and installation of electric water heaters, air source heat pumps, and ground source heat pumps. Efficient electric appliances are the best way to heat your home and heat your water, and our rebates help you get the best equipment available. From time-to-time, Heartland adjusts the rebate efficiency qualifications in order to complement changes in efficiency standards established by the federal government or by Energy Star.
Air & Ground Source Heat Pumps
Air and ground source heat pumps are the most efficient use for electricity to heat and cool your home today. As a benefit of membership, Heartland REC offers rebates for the purchase and installation of air and ground source heat pumps.
Air Source Heat Pumps must meet or exceed current Energy Star Standards. Rebate amounts for air-source heat pumps are :
$150 per ton for a 14.5 SEER
$200 per ton for a 16 SEER
$250 per ton for a 17 SEER
Traditional and mini-split systems all qualify for rebates.
Ground source heat pumps must be at least two tons and meet or exceed current Energy Star Standards. Heartland REC rebate amounts for ground-source heat pumps are $150 per 1/2 ton.
Electric Water Heaters
All electric storage water heaters of 40 gallons or larger installed after April 16, 2016 qualify for a rebate.
Since no flue is required and there is no constant flame, electric water heaters offer a simple, safe and efficient solution to heat water. With an electric water heater rebate from Heartland REC, they are an affordable solution. And today's modern heat pump water heaters are up to four times more efficient than traditional water heaters. A heat pump water heater will pay for itself in less than five years, and most come with the newest communications technology that let you take control using your phone. Some even send you alerts.
Rebate amount for most electric water heaters is $200.
Rebate amount for electric water heaters that come with a lifetime warranty (Marathon brand water heaters with fiberglass tanks) is $300.
On-demand electric water heaters do not qualify for rebates.
How does the rebate process work?
The first step is installation of the qualifying appliance. Feel free to check with Heartland beforehand if you have questions about whether a certain appliance would qualify. After installation is complete, call us at (800) 835-9586 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know. We'll send a Member Service Technician to verify proper installation. Then we'll fill out the paperwork and send you a check for the rebate amount.
