Efficient Home Program

Make your home safe, comfortable and energy-efficient.

The air conditioner and heat pump account for the largest energy use in a typical home. If your system’s not operating efficiently, you’re wasting energy and money and sacrificing comfort.

TEP’s Efficient Home Program is designed to help you reduce your cooling and heating energy use, keep more money in your pocket and improve the comfort of your home.

TEP offers instant rebates for the purchase and installation of a new ENERGY STAR® certified air conditioning and heat pump unit through one of our authorized contractors. Rebates also are available for smart programmable thermostats, duct sealing and AC tune-ups.

To qualify for the rebates, all work must be completed by one of TEP’s authorized Efficient Home Program contractors. They follow specific quality guidelines for the testing, inspection and installation of equipment to ensure proper installation and performance of your new energy efficient equipment.

Please verify that your contractor is authorized by TEP to perform these services before work begins. A list of participating contractors can be found at the bottom of this page.
