HVAC Efficiency Program

Get up to $1,200 in HVAC Rebates!

Nearly half of the energy in your home goes to heating and cooling. If your HVAC equipment is more than 10 years old, replacing it with high-efficiency equipment can save you up to 20% on heating and cooling costs.*

Get up to $1,200 in rebates when you upgrade to a more energy-efficient system. If you have multiple systems in your home you may be eligible for more than one rebate. Be sure to work with a licensed HVAC contractor to install your high-efficiency equipment and submit your rebate online.

You may be eligible to receive 30% of the cost of high-efficiency ENERGY STAR® certified air source heat pumps with Inflation Reduction Act federal tax credits** (up to $2,000 each). For more information, visit Air Source Heat Pumps Tax Credit or talk with your contractor.

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.
