HVAC Tune-Uparrows

In addition to your regularly scheduled maintenance visit, MidAmerican Energy offers rebates with the HVAC Tune-Up program to offset the cost of increasing the efficiency of existing heating and cooling equipment and ductwork. Be sure to ask your contractor to advise you on the possibility of qualifying for this program's performance rebates BEFORE the contractor begins maintenance on the heating or cooling system. In order to qualify for the HVAC Tune-Up program performance rebates, a SAVE-certified contractor must:

  • Perform an efficiency check and additional testing, which are above and beyond the normal semi-annual maintenance tasks
  • Verify performance improvements during the service call
  • Confirm that tune-up results in a minimum number of SAVE points performance improvement; this number varies by equipment (10 equipment SAVE points or 12 duct SAVE points)
View our equipment and ductwork performance improvement table.

  • Participants must be residential customers located in MidAmerican Energy Company’s Illinois service territory.
  • MidAmerican Energy Company must deliver the primary electricity or natural gas to the equipment for which the rebate is being paid.
  • Tune-ups must result in a certain number of equipment SAVE points improvement; this number varies by measure.
  • Rebate is available only once every five years for each equipment type.
Reminder: As a HomeCheck participant, you also are eligible to receive an HVAC efficiency check tune-up coupon valued at $20.
