What is the rebate process?

There are three options to receive a rebate for a commercial air conditioner. The first and easiest is an Instant Rebate where you, or your contractor, purchases a qualifying unit from a supply chain partner. The second and third methods require you, or your contractor, to fill out and submit a form. Read more about the three options below.

    Work with your Supply Chain Partner to identify a qualifying energy-efficient unit that works best for you facility. Then, purchase from the Supply Chain Partner to receive the instant rebate. The incentive is applied at the time of purchase.

    If you are not using one of our participating Supply Chain Partners, you can use option 2 or option 3 below to apply for your rebate.
