Why upgrade? As heating and cooling equipment and water heaters age, their efficiency can decrease dramatically. Replacing older, less efficient equipment before it breaks down can save you money on utility bills and ensure your family's continued comfort. Plus, with SCE&G's rebates and current federal tax credits available for energy-efficient home improvements, there's never been a better time to upgrade!
Hot Savings with Cool Rebates!
SCE&G is offering cash-back rebates worth hundreds of dollars on purchases of high efficiency heating and cooling, and water heating equipment, and investments in energy efficiency improvements. Please see Program Overview for complete details.
Rebates for Installing a New System
Through the Heating & Cooling and Water Heating Program, SCE&G electric customers can receive cash rebates for purchasing and installing ENERGY STAR® qualified central air conditioning systems and heat pumps (air source, dual fuel and ground source) in either new or existing residences. Rebates are also available for installing non-electric resistance water heaters.
Rebates for Improving an Existing System ($60–$150)Many existing heating and cooling systems operate at less than their designed capacity and efficiency, which can reduce comfort and increase energy costs. In addition, leaky, poorly insulated, or inadequate duct systems can reduce equipment efficiency by as much as 15 percent.
To help address these problems, SCE&G's Heating & Cooling Efficiency Improvements Program provides cash rebates to residential electric customers who make certain improvements to their existing heating and cooling systems.
Customers can qualify for both the duct rebates by sealing and insulating existing ductwork or by completely replacing existing ductwork, ensuring that conditioned air stays in the house, not in the crawlspace.
- $60 Rebate for each System Optimizer, a one-time service that measures and improves the operating efficiency of an air conditioner or heat pump
- $150 Rebate for sealing exisitng ductwork
- $150 Rebate for insulating existing ductwork
Rebate for Replacing an Existing Electric Water Heater ($250)Current SCE&G residential electric customers can receive a $250 rebate check when they replace their existing electric resistance water heater with one of six qualified options.
