Heating, Cooling, Water Heatingarrows

Making smart decisions about your home’s heating, cooling and water heating systems can have a big effect on your utility bills – and your comfort. Approximately half of the energy used in your home goes to heating and cooling.

System Adjustment and Verified Efficiency certification assures you purchase the most appropriate, energy-efficient system for your home, and that it's installed correctly for optimum savings and comfort. To receive eligible rebates on new HVAC equipment, MidAmerican Energy requires that an HVAC SAVE-certified contractor tests and verifies your equipment. To find a SAVE-certified contractor in your area, visit

In order to receive an HVAC equipment rebate, the equipment must be pre-enrolled and tested by an HVAC SAVE-certified technician unless otherwise noted. This includes equipment placed in multifamily residential units.
