Incentive for Residential Customers
If it’s been a few years since your last cooling system tune up, don’t wait! Tune-ups on cooling systems that have been neglected can provide an energy savings of 5-15%, or more. An inspection also helps your unit to perform better.
- Incentive is available to customers who have their cooling system inspected and tuned-up by an HVAC contractor.
- Qualifying systems include residential central – air conditioners, air source and water source heat pumps.
