    Step-by-Step Process

    1. Request Proposals - Contact a participating PTCS certified contractor to arrange for a home consultation. To find a local contractor, search our list of PTCS contractors. A complete list of all PTCS contractors can be found here.
    2. Review Proposals - The contractor will visit your home and prepare a written proposal. A copy of the proposal will be given to you and another copy, which includes heat load calculations and other important information, will be sent to us for review. We will review the proposal and notify the contractor whether the system qualifies.
    3. Install the New System - The contractor will install your new heat pump according to PUD and manufacturer specifications, then forward installation documentation to us and PTCS for review. We will schedule an inspection of your new system and request copies of the installation documentation from you.
    4. Receive Your Rebate - We will process your rebate within 3-4 weeks of completing the inspection and receiving all the required paperwork.
