Heat Pump Upgrade FAQs

Program Overview

What is the Heat Pump Upgrade program?

Dominion’s Heat Pump Upgrade program provides rebates for the replacement of existing heat pump equipment with more energy efficient models.

Participation and Eligibility

What are the benefits of a Heat Pump Upgrade?

Dominion Virginia Power’s Heat Pump Upgrade helps customers manage energy costs.  This program can help reduce costs while improving the efficiency of your home.  The incentive for the upgrade can offset the cost of a more efficient system.  A Heat Pump Upgrade can save you money as you use less energy to heat and cool your home with a more efficient model.

What are the steps to participate?
  1. Contact a local, participating contractor to schedule your Heat Pump Upgrade.   Here's a complete list of participating contractors or call 1-888-366-8280 for more information.
  2. Upon completion of the upgrade, the contractor will complete the contractor portion of the rebate form. You may then submit the completed form via fax or mail along with a copy of your receipt of payment.
  3. You will receive a confirmation email the day your rebate information is received.
  4. After you receive the initial confirmation email, you can check your rebate status using Manage Your Account or by calling 1-888-366-8280.
  5. Your rebate check will be mailed directly to you - unless you authorized payment directly to the contractor.
Do I have to use a contractor listed on the www.dom.com/contractorsearch site?
Yes.  Only qualified measures performed by a contractor participating in Dominion’s Contractor Network will be eligible for rebates.
What is the Dominion Contractor Network and why do I have to use a contractor from it?

To ensure the highest level of quality service is provided to our customers, Dominion’s Contractor Network has been established and consists of contractors who have undergone a submission process to become eligible to provide services/install measures prescribed as part of the suite of programs being offered by Dominion.

Contractors throughout Dominion’s service territory in Virginia are eligible to participate in these programs by agreeing to abide and maintain compliance with strict Terms and Conditions, and by maintaining good standing with Dominion and the Better Business Bureau.

Only qualified measures performed by a contractor participating in Dominion’s Contractor Network will be eligible for incentives.
 

I want to use my own contractor but they aren’t currently on the list. How can they join the network?

Contractors can learn more about and register to become a participating contractor in Dominion’s Contractor Network by going to www.dom-vendor.com or calling 1-888-366-8280.
