Efficient Home Program

Keep your home cool, comfortable and energy efficient all year long

Heating and cooling account for the largest energy use in a typical home. If your system is not operating efficiently, you’re wasting energy and money and compromising on comfort.

UniSource’s Efficient Home Program can help you reduce your cooling and heating energy use, keeping more money in your pocket while making your home more comfortable.

UniSource offers instant rebates for the purchase and installation of a new ENERGY STAR®-certified air conditioning and heat pump unit through one of our authorized contractors. Rebates also are available for duct sealing and AC tune-ups.

To qualify for the rebates, all work must be completed by one of UniSource’s authorized Efficient Home Program contractors. They follow specific quality guidelines for the testing, inspection and installation of equipment to ensure proper installation and performance of your new energy efficient equipment.

Please verify that your contractor is authorized by UniSource to perform these services before work begins. A list of participating contractors can be found at the bottom of this page.
