For those thinking about replacing an HVAC unit or interested in a tankless water heater, now is the time to act as the state of South Carolina is offering a Utility Rebate Program for a limited time. Qualified products can earn tax credits.
Mathis Plumbing & Heating Co. can help provide information on these rebate programs and let customers know if they are eligible. Mathis has information on available federal and local programs, such as Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio ratings and qualifications.
The South Carolina Utility Rebate Program offers homeowners a $200 rebate on existing air conditioners and source heat pumps. They must have a SEER rating of 14 or greater, include an EMC fan motor on the indoor furnace and have a Heating Seasonal Performance Factor of 8.2 or greater. There’s also a $300 rebate available to contractors for installation of new building heat pumps and air conditioners. A $250 rebate is available for attic insulation and air sealing, while rebates of $75 and $100 are available for duct insulation and sealing. Heat pump and air conditioner tune up has a $50 rebate.
Geothermal heat pumps must be 11.5 Energy Efficiency Ratio or greater and include an ECM fan motor on the indoor furnace.
The Smart $aver® program offers incentives for residential customers to increase their home’s energy efficiency. Incentives are provided for qualifying heating and cooling equipment installation and service, attic insulation with air sealing, duct insulation, and duct sealing. Duke Energy Carolinas electric residential retail customers residing in a single-family home, condominium, duplex or mobile home are eligible for the incentives. All incentives are paid after completion of the services.
