Minimum Requirements

Rebate Amount

Furnace Fans (ECM motor install)

Purchase and installation of a high efficiency brushless permanent magnet fan motor (BPM) or electrically commutated motor (ECM) to replace a permanent split capacitor (PSC) motor. Only eligible on existing equipment.


ENERGY STAR Certified Smart Thermostat (Gas Heat w/CAC, Electric A/C and Heat, Electric A/C and No Natural Gas)**

New installation or replacement of a manual or conventional programmable thermostat with ENERGY STAR certified thermostat. As part of an HVAC Install.


Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) is most commonly used to measure the efficiency of a central air conditioner operating over an entire cooling season. The higher the SEER, the more efficient the system.
Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) is a measure of how efficiently a cooling system will operate when the outdoor temperature is at a specific level (95°F). The higher the EER, the more efficient the system.
The Department of Energy has changed the test procedures that AHRI uses for residential HVAC equipment to reflect more realistic operating conditions. The HVAC efficiency metrics SEER, EER and HSPF are changing to SEER2, EER2, and HSPF2 as of January 1, 2023. The new federal standard raises the minimum efficiency levels of equipment that can be sold in the market. Units that are currently rated SEER, EER and HSPF will continue to be eligible for incentives through June 30, 2023. Units rated SEER2, EER2 and HSPF2 will have the same rebate amounts as the SEER/EER/HSPF units. AHRI may list both SEER/EER/HSPF and SEER2, EER2 and HSPF2 information on the AHRI certificate. If that is the case, please list systems with the SEER/EER/HSPF information on your applications until further notice. Should your system only have SEER2, EER2 and HSPF2 information, we will ensure your system is processed.


If your heating or cooling system is more than 10 years old, replacing it with a new high-efficiency system can add up to big energy savings. Don't wait for your equipment to stop working. Contact your local licensed HVAC contractor to get valuable equipment rebates.
