Benefits of becoming a participating installer

Nearly 1 million Northwest homes rely on inefficient and expensive electric resistance or electric forced-air heat. A ductless heating and cooling system is a cost-effective and comfortable alternative to a conventional ducted system. This market offers high growth potential and is a perfect opportunity to expand your business.

Project Support for Installers

As a participating installer, you will have access to Project marketing materials, quarterly updates, image library, sales tools and technical training and support. You will also receive a listing on our website's Installer Finder page, which is available to consumers and generates sales leads.


Participating utilities offer homeowner rebates of up to $1,500 for qualifying ductless system installations, which can help make units even more affordable and attractive for consumers. For details on rebate offered by local utilities and their eligibility requirements, view the Utility Participation List.
