Heat Pump(s)

Your selection of a
heat pump will have a $
energy cost savings per heat pump over an estimated 15 year life expectancy compared to the base model.

If you feel the above is not suitable for you. You can download Building Life-Cycle Cost (BLCC) software heat pump cost counting tool from our website. Assumptions

  • “Base model” has an efficiency that just meets the national minimum standard for that capacity.
  • Lifetime energy cost is the sum of the discounted value of the annual energy costs based on assumed commercial heat pump life of 15 years.
  • Future electricity price trends and a discount rate of 3.2% are based on Federal guidelines.
  • $0.06 for electricity is the Federal average price in the U.S.
Disclaimer This cost calculator is a screening tool that estimates a product’s lifetime energy cost savings at various efficiency levels. Maintenance and installation costs do not vary significantly among the same product having different efficiencies; so, these costs are not included in this calculator tool. For a detailed life-cycle cost analysis, FEMP has developed a tool called Building Life-Cycle Cost (BLCC). This downloadable tool allows the user to vary interest rates, installation costs, maintenance costs, salvage values, and life expectancy for a product or an entire energy project.
