Central Air Conditioning
Rebates of Up to $200 for Qualifying Systems

Before upgrading or installing a central air conditioner, consider a centrally ducted heat pump. Central heat pumps work with your existing ductwork to keep your home cool during the summer, but unlike a central air conditioner, these systems can also work in reverse during the winter to keep you warm. Compared to heating with oil, propane, or electric baseboard, a heat pump is the lowest cost fuel source. We offer rebates up to $15,000 on qualifying heat pump systems.

Additional Details

Selecting the right system for your home has never been more important. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, heating and cooling account for up to 56 percent of energy used in a typical U.S. home, making it the largest energy expense for most homes.

Fortunately, there are now a wide variety of energy-efficient air conditioners available to cool your home. In addition, many of these systems have supporting equipment in common, such as thermostats and ducts, which provide opportunities for more energy savings. An ENERGY STAR certified central air conditioner is 15 percent more efficient than a standard system. Those savings can add up.

Qualifying Systems

Qualifying systems are electric central air conditioning systems of matched assembly, in which both the condenser unit and the evaporator coil are installed simultaneously. A matched assembly is a model combination that is listed in the AHRI Directory of Certified Equipment. A matched assembly must also include the air handler, furnace or other component that is used to determine the rating according to ANSI/AHRI STANDARD 210/240-2008. To see a list of qualifying units, download the CT Qualified Products List (QPL).
