Heating & Cooling Rebates

Heating and cooling may account for as much as 50% of your home’s energy use. We offer instant rebates on qualified heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment. When you upgrade to high-efficiency equipment, you save for years to come through reduced energy costs.

During an HVAC appointment, many authorized SMECO contractors are taking additional precautions to ensure the safety of our members. Ask about safety protocols when scheduling your visit.

How It Works

  1. Contact an authorized HVAC contractor or distributor
  2. Work with your authorized contractor or distributor to identify the best, energy-efficient HVAC system for your home’s unique needs
  3. Choose your upgrades and have your contractor perform the installations
  4. Your instant rebate will be reflected in your contract price

Instant Savings on High-Efficiency HVAC Equipment

Equipment (AHRI Rated) Efficiency Level***
Smart Thermostat Qualifying ENEGY STAR® Certified Models (PDF)*
ASHP (Tier 1) including: multi-zone or single-zone mini-split ducted heat pump ≥ 16 SEER,** ≤12.5 EER,† ≥ 9.5 HSPF‡
ASHP (Tier 2) including: multi-zone or single-zone mini-split ducted heat pump ≥ 18 SEER, ≥ 12.5 EER, ≥ 9.5 HSPF
CAC Tier 1 ≥ 16 SEER and ≥ 12.5 EER
CAC Tier 2 ≥ 18 SEER and ≥ 12.5 EER
Ductless Mini Split ASHP ≥18 SEER, ≥ 12.5 EER, ≥ 9 HSPF
Multi-Zone Ductless Mini Split ASHP ≥ 15.5 SEER, ≥ 12.5 EER, ≥ 8.6 HSPF
Geothermal Heat Pump ≥ 17.1 EER and ≥ 3.6 COP§

*Limit 3 per household.

**SEER = Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating: A rating that denotes the efficiency of air conditioning equipment. The higher the SEER, the more efficient the unit and the lower the operating cost.

†EER = Energy Efficiency Rating: The ratio of an air conditioning unit’s cooling capacity in British thermal units (Btus) per hour to the total electrical input in watts.

‡HSPF = Heating Seasonal Performance Factor: The total heating output of a heat pump in Btus during its normal usage period for heating, as divided by the total electrical energy input in watt-hours during the same period.

§COP = Coefficient of Performance: A ratio that measures the efficiency of a heat pump. The higher the number, the more efficient the heat pump.

***Efficiency levels are in effect for equipment purchased on or after 06/17/2020.

Tips for Saving on Heating & Cooling

  • Maintain your HVAC systems with routine maintenance throughout the year. Our authorized contractors can help you set a maintenance schedule
