Utility Heating & Cooling Rebates Explained
Posted on May 2,2017
In the Miami Valley there are three utility companies offering rebates. The purpose of the rebates is to drive higher efficiency across the region which in turn will reduce the load on our power plants and distributions lines. The rebates available to you depend on where you live and who supplies your power.
For the Dayton area (including parts of Springboro and Waynesville):
DP&L provides a rebate for a new air conditioner if your old a/c is still working or is easily repairable (similar to a trade-in). If your current a/c is not operational and is more than 20 years old, the following rebates are reduced by half.
$450 for 16 SEER heat pump
$300 for 16 SEER air conditioner
The DP&L program contains other rebates based on thermostat and furnace selection.
(For an explanation of SEER, see our FAQs)
Vectren’s rebate applies to gas appliances.
$150 for a 95% AFUE gas furnace
$500 for a 90% AFUE gas boiler
This is a mail-in rebate (we supply the forms), and takes 4-6 weeks to receive a check.
For the area south of Dayton from Springboro through Cincinnati:
Duke Energy provides both natural gas and electricity to many homeowners in this region.
$200 for a 14 SEER air conditioner if it includes an ECM blower motor
$200 for a 15 SEER heat pump if it includes an ECM blower motor
This rebate is filed by our office. Our customers typically receive their rebate check within 10 days.
The Duke rebate is not available to customers who buy their electricity from the City of Lebanon.
Our people are trained to get you the maximum rebate available, and we take care of all the paperwork so that it’s a seamless process. If you have any questions, please call us.
