Duct Testing and Sealing
Studies show the average duct system loses 20% to 40% of its heating energy through leaks. Springfield Utility Board’s duct testing and sealing program is designed to increase comfort and provide energy savings to SUB customers at minimal or no cost.
This program is available for manufactured and site built homes that heat with an electric forced air furnace or heat pump system. Customers with gas heated homes are not eligible. Please contact us at 541-746-0963 for more information.
Ducted Heat Pumps
Get a 0% interest loan or $500 rebate to help pay for the purchase of an energy-efficient heat pump. Heat pumps are 2-3 times more efficient than electric furnaces, and can save you money over time. Call 746-0963 for more information, or view and download the appropriate forms:

Ductless Heat Pumps
Help reduce your heating costs by obtaining a 0% interest loan or a $800 rebate to help pay for the purchase of an energy-efficient ductless heat pump. Ductless heat pumps are 2 to 3 times more efficient than electric resistance zonal heating (i.e. ceiling heat, electric wall heaters).
