Take Advantage of PA Rebates

Pennsylvania residential customers of Met-Ed, Penelec, Penn Power, and West Penn Power can qualify for valuable rebates by installing high-efficiency HVAC and water heater systems or by having an HVAC system tune up. The savings will continue month after month with decreased energy usage and the resulting billing cost.

Our experienced and professional technicians can assess your current HVAC system, discuss your upgrade options for qualifying rebates, and perform a thorough system tune up or installation.

Present and Future HVAC Savings With High Efficiency Upgrades


Save up-front with rebates that can be earned two ways: Tune up your current HVAC system OR replace a less efficient system with new high-efficiency HVAC technology. Tune up rebates are only available once every seven years.

The initial rebate amount will generally range from $100 to $400 and the savings will more than likely continue monthly on your utility bill. Because the new equipment is more energy efficient, customers experience reduced energy usage and lower monthly heating and cooling costs. The amount that you save on your bill will depend on the quality of your current equipment and the extent to which you choose to upgrade.

FirstEnergy’s Pennsylvania utilities report that those that upgrade to high-efficiency water heaters use 10 to 50 percent less energy than standard systems and reduce their monthly heating costs by up to 50 percent. In addition, the average household will save around $300 per year on costs when switching from a standard electric water heater to a heat pump water heater.
