TECH Clean California: Time 1 Market Assessment Final Report

This report characterizes the conditions in the space- and water-heating markets for heat pumps in mid-2023, approximately a year and a half after the TECH Initiative launched. To assess the markets for space-conditioning and water-heating equipment, we surveyed a general population of homeowners in California as well as licensed HVAC and plumbing contractors who serve the California market. A primary goal for our analysis was to identify differences that have occurred in the market since completing the Technology and Equipment for Clean Heating (TECH) Baseline Market Assessment 2021 (baseline). To inform this Time 1 Market Study, our key survey objectives were to investigate 1) the awareness and preferences of property owners who purchase heat pumps, 2) contractor readiness to install heat pumps, 3) contractor heat pump promotion efforts, 4) awareness of heat pump incentives, and 5) the availability and use of financing offerings.
