Efficient Home Program

Keep your home comfortable and energy efficient all year long

Heating and cooling account for the largest energy use in a typical home. If your cooling and heating systems aren’t operating efficiently, you’re wasting energy and money and sacrificing comfort. Our Efficient Home Program offers instant rebates for the purchase and installation of a new certified air conditioning and heat pump unit through one of our participating contractors. The rebate is taken off the purchase price when you retire an older working unit or a non-working AC unit. Rebates also are available for duct sealing, mini split and AC tune-ups.

You can start by scheduling a free virtual home assessment. During your appointment, we’ll help you determine if your home’s heating and cooling system is operating efficiently. You’ll also receive a customized report with energy-saving recommendations and information about available rebates. This information can help you decide if an energy-efficient upgrade is right for you and your home.

If you already have a heating and cooling project in mind, you don’t need to schedule a virtual assessment. Instead, you can work directly with an participating contractor to receive your rebate.

To qualify for the rebates, you must use a participating Efficient Home Program contractor. This ensures your equipment or services were properly completed, inspected and tested for optimal performance. Participating Trade Allies provide the installation services and deduct the rebate amount from the customer’s final project cost.

Please verify that your contractor is participating with the Efficient Home Program to perform these services before work begins. For additional information about potential tax benefits for energy efficiency improvements, visit the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency.
