When you are considering a new HVAC system or thinking about upgrading your current HVAC system, rebates are a fantastic way to offset the steep initial cost of an HVAC installation.
The most common rebate offer is designed to encourage energy efficiency. For those upgrading their homes’ heating or cooling systems or installing entirely new HVAC systems, there are rebates available that promote selecting energy-efficient systems. The efficiency of a system is measured by the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER), or for heat pumps, the Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF).
Rebates are offered in two ways: either by the state or federal government or your local utility company and may be subject to change. It’s always a smart idea to look up the current rebate offers by checking the website for your state’s energy department as well as your utility company. Additionally, the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency, the U.S. Department of Energy, and the Energy Star websites all offer updated information about rebates.
Opportunities in Maryland
Every state has different incentives to consider when buying or upgrading HVAC systems. As Exxel Mechanical Services serves the Frederick, Westminster, and Owings Mills areas in Maryland, we are happy to share resources for Maryland residents who want to take advantage of statewide energy policies and incentives.
HVAC system rebates, or any type of heating and cooling rebate that Maryland offers, fall under the “EmPOWER Maryland” initiative. The state works with utility companies to improve energy consumption by providing money-saving deals for customers. HVAC rebates differ depending on which utility company provides service in your area, your yearly income, and other pertinent information.
BGE or Potomac Edison provides service to many of our customers, and they both offer rebates between $300 and $1500 on several types of systems. We list those rebate offers on our website. Click here to check those out.
Maryland’s Energy Administration offers plenty of information on its website, including links to the different utility companies and their offers. Click here to go to the Maryland Energy Administration website and look for the tab titled, “Find Incentives,” for the utility company that serves your area. Additionally, by completing the form on their website, you’ll be able to search for any deal or rebate available to you. Click here for the form.
