Program Update: Due to its popularity, the 2017 rebate amounts for the Delmarva Power HVAC Efficiency Program have been adjusted to extend the available funds for eligible customers.

As a result, effective June 1, 2017:

  • New rebate amounts will be applied to the qualified installed equipment for all rebate applications submitted on or after June 1, 2017.
  • Rebate applications submitted on or before May 31, 2017 will receive the original rebate amounts for the qualified installed equipment.

Equipment that has been purchased but not yet installed before June 1, 2017 will only qualify for the new rebate amounts.

The information on these HVAC webpages reflects the new rebate amounts.

*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.
