Northwest Plumbers, HVAC Contractors Can Earn Extra Cash for Installing Heat Pump Water Heaters

Share With:

From now until September 30, 2024, contractors in the Northwest can earn an additional $500 for every qualifying heat pump water heater they install, thanks to the Bonneville Power Administration’s (BPA) Comfort Ready Home program.

To participate, contractors must be enrolled in the Comfort Ready Home Residential Contractor Network and join the Greener Water Heater promotion. The heat pump water heaters must be listed on the BPA Qualified Products List and be installed in a single-family or manufactured home in a participating utility’s territory in Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana. See additional terms and conditions.

Plumbers and contractors can earn an additional $500 for every heat pump water heater installed through September 2024.

Heat pump water heaters use significantly less energy compared to standard electric units and according to ENERGY STAR can save families as much as $5,600 over the lifetime of the appliance. By participating in the Greener Water Heater promotion, contractors are providing their customers with the best value in water heating, as heat pump water heaters:

  • Deliver more hot water than a standard electric resistance tank when properly sized
  • Can be installed with little-to-no additional plumbing work
  • Offer a 10-year manufacturer warranty on tank and parts
  • Often include smart features like leak detection and Wi-Fi connectivity

Contractors will receive payments for each qualifying installation reported to Comfort Ready Home during the promotion period. They can also access free marketing materials for heat pump water heaters, personalized support from a Comfort Ready Home Field Specialist and on-demand training.

The Greener Water Heater promotion is part of Comfort Ready Home’s mission to help lower energy use in homes across the Northwest by connecting contractors, utilities, and homeowners to energy-efficient solutions.
