What you'll receive
Earn up to $1,800 in instant rebates with these upgrades, designed to work together to increase your home’s comfort and to lower your energy bills.
Air Conditioning or AC/Furnace
Replace your current AC system or AC/furnace systems to increase reliability and provide maximum energy savings.
Replace your current thermostat with an eligible smart thermostat to receive maximum benefit from your HVAC system.
Leaky ducts can waste energy and lower indoor air quality. Duct sealing is essential for a high-performance system.
Energy Performance Monitoring
Your monthly energy data will be checked to ensure that your home is saving energy as expected, and that your system is operating efficiently.
Monthly Cool Saver Reports
You’ll receive monthly reports on your home’s energy performance, how you compare to others, and whether you’re on pace for a Cool Rewards bonus.
CO Monitor and Safety Testing
Receive a free carbon monoxide monitor (if you don’t already have one) and your contractor will test your existing gas appliances to ensure they are operating safely.
Ask your contractor about additional ways to save and improve your home’s performance! Our participating contractors are industry leaders who are trained in building science and home performance.
