California urgently needs to convert to zero-emission building appliances to curb climate change and reduce the health impacts of fossil fuel appliances. Emissions from building appliances have flown below the radar for years as policymakers focused on reducing emissions from power plants and transportation. Although the climate and health benefits of converting to clean appliances are enormous, installing a new heat pump is typically more expensive than just replacing a broken gas appliance like-for-like. The incremental costs — in the range of thousands of dollars — can be prohibitive for low-income households. Moreover it’s possible that landlords of affordable rental units will raise rents when faced with a new additional expense. SPUR presents our findings from the report Closing the Affordability Gap on Electric Appliances, which presents insights on strategies to fill the affordability gap.
