Save on Energy Consumption & Get a Rebate
As an overall statement, rebates are given on high efficiency furnaces and high efficiency air conditioning because these companies are providing incentives to install or replace older, less efficient systems with high efficiency systems.
Rebates are available for specified time periods and the offers vary in the type of equipment and the amount of rebate with each new offer. Call us at (630) 425-6943 for current offers.
Which Unit Qualifies and What Is My Discount?
Why Do I Have To Use A Partner Contractor?
Since there is no state-wide licensing program for HVAC contractors in Illinois, they want to make sure a quality installation that ensures the high efficiency aspect of the equipment is fully realized.
The ICC pre-qualifies contractors, making sure the contractors have the technical knowledge required that match their skills against national certification criteria.
How Do I Apply for a Rebate?
Once you have chosen your HVAC equipment and we have installed it, we will complete your invoice and send a copy of it along with the rebate paperwork for processing. You should receive your rebate after about 6 weeks.
Qualifying Heating Equipment
For Natural Gas Customers
As of the date this page was created, for furnaces, the rebate available is for a 95% AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) natural gas furnace.
For Electric Service Customers
If you have an electric only system, a furnace utilizing an ECM system (which is a variable speed fan motor, minimizing temperature swings) qualifies you for a rebate.
Qualifying Air Conditioning Equipment
The air conditioning installation requirements are a bit trickier. Good thing we figure it all out for you! First, the air flow requirements and sizing of the unit must match your home’s needs.
Registered AC contractors take the following into account:
- Age of the home
- Type of insulation
- Window size, number and type
- Depth of exterior wall construction
- Orientation of your home (north, south, east, west)
Next we make sure the air flow around the unit is sufficient to maximize efficiency. We can then give you several recommendations on equipment size and efficiency. Equipment rebate requirements take into account both SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) and EER (Energy Efficiency Ratio) ratings. With both ratings, a higher number indicates better efficiency. Different combinations have different rebate amounts assigned.
