Qualifying Mini-Split Systems
Mini-split ductless ASHP systems must have a SEER rating of 15.0 and HSPF rating of 8.5 to qualify for the rebate. Work with a participating contractor to ensure your system meets the rebate requirements and supports your existing ductless heating distribution system.
Contact 800-677-8423 (option 2) if you have questions about qualifying units.
HVAC Quick Glossary
SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio): An energy efficiency rating for residential air conditioners. The higher the SEER, the better the energy performance and the lower the energy costs. The U.S. Department of Energy’s established minimum SEER rating for cooling is 10.
EER (Energy Efficiency Ratio): A measure of the efficiency of cooling equipment at peak performance when the outdoor temperature is at a specific level (usually 95°F). A higher EER means greater energy efficiency.
HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor): Measures the efficiency of residential heating equipment throughout an entire heating season. Typically considered the heating equivalent of SEER. A higher HSP means higher efficiency. The U.S. Department of Energy’s minimum HSP rating is 6.8.
COP (Coefficient of Performance): Measures the efficiency of heating equipment at 17°F and 47°F. A higher COP means higher efficiency. This rating does not reflect how much energy is being used by backup heating sources.
