The Southeast Propane Alliance (SEPA) will be offering ten, $1,600 rebates which will cover the total cost of the Heat Pump Helper device.

The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) is hosting a webinar in partnership with Rinnai and Bindus on Monday, February 5th, 2024 at 2:00 PM EST to explain the technical components, performance, and installation process of the Heat Pump Solution. A link to register for the webinar can be found here.

An air-handler-installed Heat Pump Helper™ moves hot water from the propane tankless water heater across newly installed hydronic coils to create hot air that is then blown through the existing ductwork to heat the home.“The Heat Pump Helper is finally here! We are excited to have a solution to grow the residential market and compete against total electric heating,” said John Jessup, President & CEO of the Southeast Propane Alliance (SEPA). “Grid resiliency is a real issue and will become an even bigger issue in the future. The HPH significantly reduces the electric demand on a home.”

SEPA is excited to announce the launch of the Heat Pump Helper (HPH) rebate program. SEPA is offering ten rebates of $1,600 each, which will cover the total cost of the HPH device. The end user will be responsible for the installation cost.

These rebates will be offered on a first come, first served basis. Members who are interested in participating, should contact: John Jessup, the leader of this effort for SEPA. email: jjessup@southeastpropane.org

Interest does not necessarily lock companies into a rebate; more detailed information on what is required to apply and claim the rebate will be provided to those who are interested.
