  • New Heating and Cooling Equipment: Get up to $1,500 when you upgrade existing equipment to high-efficiency heating and cooling equipment.
  • Geothermal Heat Pump: Get a $1,500 rebate when you buy a geothermal heat pump.
  • Ductless Mini-Split System: Get up to $400 when you buy a ductless mini-split heat pump system.
  • Smart Thermostat: Get a $100 rebate when you upgrade to an ENERGY STAR certified smart thermostat.
  • ECM Furnace Motor: Get up to $100 when you buy an ECM furnace motor. 

Choose the rebate that's best for you—you'll get cash back now and enjoy continued energy savings in the future! You could be eligible for more than one rebate if, for example, you have multiple systems in your home. Please note that a participating contractor must install the HVAC equipment upgrade to qualify for a rebate.

*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.
