How does the UES Efficient Home Program work?
- Call a UES Efficient Home Program participating contractor and request an air conditioner efficiency screening.
- Your program participating contractor will perform an efficiency screening on your existing equipment and confirm in writing the UES rebates you are eligible for.
- When you elect to replace your existing equipment with qualifying new equipment and have your ducts sealed, your participating contractor will use CheckMe!® computer diagnostics to confirm a proper installation with the correct refrigerant charge and air flow.
- Your UES Efficient Home Program rebate will be provided by your participating contractor as a line-item credit at the time of invoicing.
How will I receive my rebate?
UES Efficient Home Program rebates are always provided by your participating contractor as a line-item credit at the time of invoicing.
Why use a UES Efficient Home participating contractor?
Unlike other major appliances, your air conditioner or heat pump is not a "plug and play" appliance. Proper installation starts and ends with diagnostics to ensure it is operating at its peak efficiency. UES Efficient Home Program participating contractors follow specific quality guidelines when installing your new equipment. Then they test their work using CheckMe!® diagnostic software through the UES Efficient Home Program. Quality installation also means your contractor will inspect your duct system and perform certain specified repairs to ensure the air you heat and cool stays inside your home. In homes where significant duct leakage is detected, additional incentives may be available for repairs not included under the installation of new equipment.
