Save energy at home by making the switch to high-efficiency heating and cooling equipment.


If your heating or cooling equipment is more than 10 years old, now is an ideal time to replace it!

Through our residential HVAC Instant Rebate Program, you can get instant rebates of up to $450 when you upgrade to a cost-effective, energy-efficient central or mini-split air conditioner unit, heat pump, or ENERGY STAR® certified smart thermostat through a PSE&G participating contractor—and instant rebates of up to $660 on a new gas water heater, furnace, or boiler system.

Better yet, you may be eligible for PSE&G's low financing rates through our on-bill repayment program to help you pay for your upgrades.


How You Can Participate

To get started, contact a PSE&G participating contractor who can help guide you through the process, install your equipment, and provide you with an instant rebate once the installation of your new high-efficiency unit(s) is complete.

What You Can Expect

Your selected participating contractor will contact you to confirm your account eligibility and will provide information about PSE&G’s convenient on-bill repayment option as well as additional incentives for Low to Moderate Income (LMI) customers.

On your scheduled appointment day, your contractor will install your high-efficiency HVAC heating, cooling, or water heater equipment, note your PSE&G instant rebate on your invoice, and ask you to sign a customer acknowledgment form upon completion.
