Insulating, Sealing and Replacing an Electric Furnace with a Heat Pump
A How$martKY participant in Jackson County paid $408.80 for electricity in January 2011. Through the How$martKY program, the customer was able to get considerable air-sealing and insulation done as well as to replace his electric furnace with a high-efficiency heat pump. After the retrofit, the client’s January 2012 electric bill showed a savings of $165.66. Much of that savings is a result of having a more tightly-sealed home and a more energy efficient heat source.
