Win-Win: Rebates for HVAC Upgrades that Save Energy 

Homeowners are constantly looking for ways to enhance their comfort throughout the seasons, and manage monthly expenses effectively. When it comes to heating and cooling systems, the thought of upgrades or replacements is often accompanied by concerns regarding high installation costs. 

Homes that use less energy to stay comfortable here in New York are better for the environment and the greater electrical grid that we depend on, which is why homeowners are in luck when it comes to these upgrades. If you are looking down the barrel at a heating and/or cooling replacement, it is crucial to trust a cooling and heating company near you that understands the world of rebates and incentives.

The Urgency of Upgrades

HVAC systems have a limited lifespan, and as they approach the end of their serviceable years, their efficiency quickly declines and heating and air conditioning repairs become more expensive. This results in higher energy consumption and costs, not to mention a decreased ability to maintain comfortable indoor temperatures. 

Upgrading to modern, energy-efficient HVAC systems such as all-electric heat pumps, efficient air conditioners, or furnaces before your old system fails can offer significant benefits, both in terms of energy savings and operational reliability.

The earlier you upgrade your heating and cooling systems, the more you stand to save in monthly costs. 

Modern Efficient HVAC Systems

All-Electric Heat Pump HVAC Systems

All-electric heat pumps are capable of providing both heating and cooling by transferring heat rather than generating it through fossil fuel combustion. This process is far more energy-efficient, reducing electricity use and lowering utility bills. 

Efficient ACs and Furnaces

Today’s high-efficiency air conditioners and furnaces are designed to use less energy to achieve the desired indoor climate. They incorporate advanced technologies such as variable speed fans and modulating burners that adjust operation to match the precise cooling or heating needs of your home, thus avoiding the energy waste associated with traditional systems.

Leveraging HVAC Rebates and Incentives

Various programs offer rebates and incentives to homeowners who make the switch. Energy Savers is well versed in the following incentives that not only promote sustainability but also significantly offset HVAC replacement costs.

NYSERDA Comfort Home Program

The NYSERDA Comfort Home Program provides substantial rebates for homeowners who upgrade to more energy-efficient systems. By participating in such programs with approved contractors like Energy Savers, you can receive financial incentives that reduce the upfront cost of installing new, efficient HVAC equipment like heat pumps. 

*Additional heat pump rebate is available to homes that have completed seal and insulate updates from the Comfort Home Program.

New York State Clean Heat Program

This initiative comes with no income qualifications and is designed to put money back in your pocket. Whether you’re looking to install a heat pump water heater or an air-source heat pump, you could be eligible for rebates starting at $800 and going all the way up to $1,100. You can combine these with other rebates for other energy improvements like insulation and air sealing. 

Federal Tax Credits (25C)

The federal government offers tax credits for energy-efficient home improvements. The 25C tax credit, for example, allows homeowners to claim a credit of 30% of the cost, up to $1,200 annually, for qualifying HVAC upgrades. This incentive is a direct deduction from the taxes you owe, providing a significant financial benefit at tax time.
