What is a Cold Climate Air Source Heat Pump (ccASHP)?

A new generation of ASHPs has been hitting the market in recent years that benefit those in colder climates such as the Midwest. The technology has improved drastically over the years, allowing these systems to provide heat at higher efficiencies in even lower outdoor temperatures. This advancement in technology is making the use of these ccASHP’s even more attractive to people living in areas where winters are especially cold. The heating capabilities of these systems allow for heating not only in the shoulder months, but well into the winter months too. Not only are heat pumps great alternatives to the classic cooling (and dehumidification) systems, but with the technological advancements of the ccASHPs, they are a great alternative to conventional heating methods as well.

Minnesota Power offers a rebate on ENERGY STAR® qualified, ducted Cold Climate Air Source Heat Pumps (ccASHP).

Available January 1–December 31, 2021

How to Get Your Rebate on an ENERGY STAR® Qualified, Ducted ccASHP

  • You must use one of these program participating contractors to qualify for the rebate. Contractors will complete the paperwork necessary for the rebate.

    Note: Minnesota Power also offers rebates on Electronically Commutated Motors (ECMs), so if a replacement motor was included in the install of the ccASHP or if a new furnace with an integrated ECM was installed, these can be rebated as well.
