WHY SHOULD I HEAT MY HOME WITH A HEAT PUMP?

 

In our 2016 Sitka community , it costs approximately $1200 per year to heat a 1500 square foot home with a modern fuel oil heater (with $3/gal fuel).  If you owned a heat pump in that same home, it would cost about ONE-HALF as much or about $600 per year in electric cost (FY17 rate of 15cents).  A similar home with baseboard heat would cost $1800 per year.  Additionally, heating with electricity rather than fuel oil keeps those $ here in Sitka which lowers both your electric rate and the rates for our entire community. Further, our hydro-electric system is one of the finest in Alaska and represents clean energy without carbon emissions.
