Recommended Contractors and Measures


Heat Pumps and Ductless Heat Pumps

For further information and details, contact our Conservation department by phone (503-472-6158) or e-mail: moc.rewop-cm@baras.





MW&L recommends getting more than one bid. Rebates vary from $200 to $1,200. The different incentives depend on whether you have an old heat pump that needs replacing, an electric furnace that you want to convert to a heat pump and if the ducts get sealed. They also vary based on the efficiency.



Insulation and Windows

Rebates are available for attic, floor, and wall insulation and windows. The insulation rebates vary based on how much existing insulation you have. Any uninsulated or poorly insulated areas will have the highest incentives and be the most cost effective measures you can do.



Heat Pump Water Heaters

A new measure MW&L offers incentives for is the heat pump water heater. These can be purchased at local home improvement stores or you can contact your plumber or the heat pump contractors in the link above to install it for you. MW&L recommends purchasing Tier 1 models if your existing water heater is in the garage and Tier 2 if it is in the conditioned part of your home.
