The City of Milton offers Heat Pump Upgrade and Heat Pump Conservation rebates for Single Family and Manufactured Homes with electric heat. Before beginning your project, please contact Richard Hutchinson for details and information on possible rebates you may be eligible for. Duct Sealing may be required, so check with your PTCS certified contractor to schedule a duct test to determine if the duct sealing measure applies.

Selecting a Contractor - If you are in need of a contractor, you can search for one on the PTCS website. Whomever you choose, they must have a City of Milton Business License. In addition, a Mechanical Permit is required from the City and can be applied for at Milton City Hall, Building C. For business ratings and feedback, search the Better Business Bureau, Yelp and other social media sites.

Other conservation measures are Commissioning of newly installed systems, Line voltage or Smart Thermostat and Duct Sealing. See application for reimbursement rates. There is up to $1,400 in reimbursements. Building permits are required on all mechanical projects.
