Rebates for Maryland Residents

As your trusted HVAC service provider in Central Maryland, including Mount Airy, Frederick, Westminster, Ellicott City and neighboring areas, we want you to know about Maryland’s energy-efficient rebate programs.

Empower Maryland Home Performance Program

This program starts with an in-depth whole-home energy audit. During this audit, a certified professional assesses your home’s energy usage by examining various aspects like insulation, appliances, windows, and your heating and cooling systems. Using advanced tools and techniques, they pinpoint areas where your home may be losing energy and offer tailored solutions.

Once the audit is complete, you’ll receive a detailed report that prioritizes recommended energy-saving upgrades. What’s unique is that these suggestions come with rebate amounts specifically tailored to your home. You decide which improvements align with your budget and energy-saving goals. As you complete these upgrades, your power company rewards you with rebates based on the estimated energy savings your home will achieve. These rebates range from $100 to a generous $7,500, so the more you save, the bigger your rebate becomes. It’s a win-win, making your home cozier, your energy bills lighter, and your wallet happier.  Click here to learn more about Empower Maryland and how it works through your power company.
