The Energy Co-op of Vermont, a northern Vermont heating fuel provider and energy efficiency Co-op, announces the launch of Co-op Heat Pumps, an innovative heat pump leasing program. The Co-op Heat Pump program offers homeowners a super-efficient Fujitsu heat pump for less than $40 a month on a ten-year lease, with an upfront payment of less than $300.
“Our core mission at the Energy Co-op is to help Vermonters make their homes comfortable, healthy and energy-efficient.” said John Quinney, General Manager. “The Co-op Heat Pump lease program does just that by providing immediate cost savings while reducing fossil fuel use by up to 80%. It’s a win-win.”
The Co-op provides a turn-key application and installation service which begins with a sign-up form on the Co-op Heat Pumps website. Completing the sign-up form triggers a short survey that makes it easy for potential customers to determine if their home is suitable for a heat pump. Homes with open floor plans that are heated with oil or propane are best suited for the Co-op Heat Pumps program.
According to Efficiency Vermont, for a typical Vermont home where a customer is able to shift 80% of their heating requirements away from heating oil or propane to a cold climate heat pump, the savings can be between $800 and $1,200 a year.
Current Co-op members and non-members are welcome to inquire. The Co-op’s Colchester offices are heated and cooled with a heat pump which is available for demonstration during regular business hours Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
