Reasons to Convert Your Fossil Fuel Furnace to an Electric Heat Pump


Installation Cost: Free (In most cases the $10,000 rebate covers most of the project) Massachusetts has a three-year electric and natural gas energy efficiency plan for 2022 through 2024 that provides an estimated $13 billion in benefits to the Commonwealth.

Operating Cost: For the MA area heat pumps will cost you less per month to operate than a oil, electric or propane system.

Efficiency: Heat pumps are 400% efficient. For every 1 unit of energy, 4 units of heat energy are supplied.

Lifespan: Approximately 15 years.

Versatility: An electric heat pump also acts as an air conditioner to cool your home in the summer.

Convenience: Each heat pump unit’s temperature can be adjusted to suit each persons preference. Each room can have a different temperature!

Installation Space: Heat pumps require less space. Heat pumps are located outside and don’t require safety clearance since it’s simply transferring heat.

Phase Out Of Fossil Fuels: MA continues to encourage and incentivize electrification. MA plans to phase out incentives for fossil fuel heating systems and end all fossil fuel heating system incentives by the end of 2024.
