Alaska Heat Smart’s Programs can help you learn if a heat pump will work well for your building, can help you navigate the purchase and installation process, and possibly provide you money for your heat pump purchase or home remediation needs.
Heat Pump Home Assessment
Our Energy Advisors can help you learn about heat pumps, find out how the different options could be configured for your home, determine what the cost and emissions savings are likely to be, and navigate the installation process. This is at no cost to the applicant.
Healthy Homes (HH)
Healthy Homes is Alaska Heat Smart’s newest program, one that will facilitate the remediation of at least 90 lower income Juneau family homes. If you and your family qualify for our Healthy Homes program, you may be able to save money, keep your home warmer and drier, and eliminate a variety of household hazards that may be effecting both your family’s health and your wallet’s.
Funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development, our Healthy Homes program will tackle health, safety, and comfort issues in the homes of successful income-qualified applicants. The program will prioritize homes with residents over the age of 55 years and children under the age of seven years, in addition to the extent of hazards or issues present in the home.
Clean Heat Incentive Program (CHIP)
With support from Alaska’s Senator Lisa Murkowski, our developing heat pump incentive program will provide a significant financial boost to households earning between 80 and 125% of median area income that are purchasing and installing a heat pump. We are hopeful that this program will go live by mid fall 2022. It is our intention to have incentives be retroactive to June 2022.
Juneau Carbon Offset Fund
Our partner, Renewable Juneau’s Juneau Carbon Offset Fund, provides free air source heat pumps to fossil fuel-burning, income-qualifying households. As of June 2022, the Fund has served nearly 30 Juneau families. Learn more about the program here.
