Heating Your Home for Less

Did you know that heating and cooling your home can, on average, cost more than $900 a year—nearly half your home’s total energy bill?

A furnace breakdown during cold weather is the last thing anyone wants. If your furnace is over 15 years old or showing signs of breaking down, it may be time for a replacement. Plan ahead, do your research and schedule a contractor visit sooner than later, to avoid a costly winter emergency. If you’re interested in upgrading, our heating and cooling program offers incentives on qualifying furnaces, including dual-fuel heat pumps.

What are dual-fuel heat pumps? Dual-fuel heat pumps run on electricity rather than natural gas and work with your furnace to provide ultra-efficient heating and cooling. Wisconsin homeowners are increasingly turning to dual-fuel systems because of the versatility and energy-saving performance. You get the highly efficient heating and cooling performance of a heat pump and the reliable cozy comfort of a gas furnace. For a quick explanation on how dual-fuel heat pumps work, check out our video.

Want even more heating options? Electric ductless mini-split heat pumps are another energy-efficient choice. They generate air from a single device and distribute that air more efficiently than traditional natural gas heating systems and air conditioners. Plus, FOCUS ON ENERGY® has partnered with participating contractors to provide you with instant discounts on high-efficiency ductless heat pumps. To learn more, visit focusonenergy.com/midstream.
