Savings All Year Round

Air-Source Heat Pumps

Heat pumps transfer heat — into the home during the winter and out of the home during the summer. These energy-efficient units provide a cost-effective way to both heat and cool your home. For a limited time, Ameren Illinois is offering up to $2,000* towards the purchase of a new air-source heat pump. Install one now and mark the calendar for year-round savings and comfort.
