HVAC Tune-Uparrows

We now offer rebates to offset the cost of increasing the efficiency of existing equipment and ductwork. Our Residential HVAC Tune-Up program promotes the proper maintenance and operation of heating and cooling systems by residential customers in existing homes. There are two ways to participate:

  • The equipment tune-up measure is available to customers during their regularly scheduled maintenance visit by participating contractors.
  • The ductwork improvement measure is available to customers during an equipment tune-up or when installing a new piece of equipment with a participating contractor.
Customers can schedule a regular maintenance or equipment replacement with a participating contractor. The HVAC contractor tests and determines whether the existing equipment is eligible for an incentive when performing an equipment tune-up.
