Incentive & Financing Questions
What financing options are available to me?
NYSERDA offers two loan products for clean heating and energy efficiency with a range of terms. The Smart Energy Loan, a more traditional loan, or the On-Bill Recovery Loan. The On-Bill Recovery Loan allows you to finance energy efficiency improvements to your home through a charge on your utility bill. Your repayment amount will be based on projected savings on your energy bill; essentially, paying the loan with your savings. Plus, the HeatSmart participating installers also offer private financing solutions. Ask them about what other opportunities may be available to you.
How much could I potentially save by installing clean heating and cooling?
How much can I expect to pay for a clean heating and cooling system?
The cost of a heat pump will vary depending on the type of system installed (geothermal, air source, ductless or ducted), how many zones you want to heat/cool, the size of your home, how well insulated it is and more. In general, a ductless heat pump will cost roughly $4,500 - $6,000 or more for every zone of your home you want to heat.
