What’s a “heat pump lead”?
First let’s cover the basics so we’re on the same page. Heat pump leads are homeowners that are looking to install heat pump HVAC systems or water heaters in their homes—and soon.
Marketing to this group has a few benefits:
- Readiness and willingness to adopt new technology
- Increased heat pump tax credits for homeowners increase their motivation
- The HOMES rebates program opens up new benefits for contractors
- New and improved cold climate heat pump technology means an all-in-one system to maintain
- Clear environmental and air quality benefits
- Streamlined broad marketing efforts and secured heat pump customers that are ready to install when you work with companies like Sealed
Qualified heat pump leads are more likely to convert into customers—and likely, really happy ones.
And happy heat pump customers turn into word-of-mouth marketing for your HVAC business.
The benefits of heat pumps are clear. And when you focus on securing qualified leads, you can maximize your sales efforts and achieve higher conversion rates. (Who doesn’t love that?)

Ensuring you can expertly serve heat pump leads
Any wise home performance contractor knows an increase in demand means it’s time to invest in heat pump installation certification and training for your team.

Effective strategies for generating heat pump leads
Looking for strategies to bring in new heat pump customers? Here are a few:
- Develop a marketing plan to target homeowners looking for heat pumps.
- Leverage local SEO for targeted heat pump leads.
- Use social media advertising.
- Set up referral programs and strategic partnerships.
- Use emails (and even cold calls!) to nurture former customers.
1. Develop a marketing plan targeting homeowners interested in heat pumps
You might already have a marketing plan that you initially created at the start of your business or when you expanded to a new region. Time to dust it off, do some research, and make edits! Check out these HVAC marketing tips to get started.
2. Leverage local SEO for targeted heat pump leads
Search engine optimization (SEO) is just a fancy phrase for making sure Google (and people!) can find your business.
The best thing about this marketing strategy is that it can produce dividends for your business long-term and specifically reach people in your local area. Learn more about local SEO here.
3. Use social media advertising.
Target ads to homeowners in your area who are interested in similar topics or have been searching for information about heat pumps.
Use your social media channels and your website to share success stories and customer testimonials.
4. Set up referral programs and strategic partnerships.
You know what pairs really well with a new heat pump system? (Sure you do!) Insulation and whole-home air sealing.
Find where the homeowner’s needs overlap, and form strategic business relationships accordingly. (Like with the Sealed team! We send qualified homeowners to highly qualified contractors to get their home energy upgrades done right.)
5. Use emails (and even cold calls!) to nurture former customers.
“Lead nurturing” is working to nurture a continuous relationship with possible future clients or your former clients over time to secure their business in the future.
You can use email marketing, targeted direct mail, and even good-old-fashioned cold calling to let previous customers know that you’re installing high-performance heat pumps in their area.
Educate previous customers (whose HVAC systems are near the end of their lifespans) that switching to a heat pump is the best switch. And provide your customers with clear understandings of the rebates available.
If this all sounds like a lot of work (on top of the work you and your team are already doing), well, it is.
The future is here—and it involves a heat pump.
