Help customers go ductless and save

Earn cash back for qualified ductless heat pump installations and help your customers enjoy savings of up to 50 percent on their heating and cooling costs. This simple upgrade is far more efficient than baseboards and wall heaters, and with no invasive ductwork, installation is quick and easy. Your customers may also qualify for cash incentives that reduce the up-front costs significantly.
