Cooling Efficiency for Trade Partners

Increase your sales of energy-efficient cooling equipment by helping your customers receive cash incentives for buying and installing qualifying models. Our Cooling Efficiency program is designed to help encourage customers to make energy-saving cooling choices.


On average, our prescriptive rebates equate to approximately 60 percent of the incremental costs incurred for purchasing high-efficiency equipment. What’s more, your customers may benefit from at least a 20 percent increase in efficiency compared to older units. Help them save money on cooling costs over time while increasing comfort.

How to Get Started

  1. Complete pages 1, 4, and 5 of the rebate application. Don’t forget about the Alternative Rebate Recipient option.
  2. Include invoices with product model numbers and efficiencies when requested. We need copies of the information provided by the equipment manufacturer to validate efficiencies represented on rebate forms.
  3. Be sure that chiller rebates include the manufacturer’s performance specs under ARI conditions.
  4. Be sure to have the customer sign the application prior to submittal.
  5. Send the completed application to us.

Break Ground, Not the Law

Always call 811 before digging in your yard to avoid hitting buried gas or electric lines. Not only is it the safe thing to do, but it's the law.
