Installing, renovating, or replacing cooling equipment with high-efficiency options can make your workplace more comfortable and reduce cooling costs. Incentives from Efficiency Maine are available for heat pumps, variable refrigerant flow systems, and programmable thermostats.
Many Maine businesses cool and heat with a heat pump; heat pumps come in several configurations including central systems and mini-split systems which heat different zones independently. Click here to find out more about ductless mini-split heat pumps and available incentives.
Variable Refrigerant Flow Systems:
Variable refrigerant flow systems can simultaneously cool and heat different parts of the building; these systems can be very efficient because they can cool by taking waste heat captured in one part of the building (e.g., a server room, or the face of the building exposed to the sun) and deliver it to spaces requiring heat. Because they rely on a different distribution network than is present in most existing buildings, variable refrigerant flow systems are most often installed in new buildings or as part of large renovation projects.
