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


Enjoy instant rebates and long-term savings.

Heating and cooling can account for nearly half the energy you use at home. If your HVAC equipment is more than 10 years old, replacing it with ENERGY STAR® certified models could reduce your annual energy costs by 10%–30%.*

Through our residential HVAC Instant Rebate Program, you can get access to instant rebates up to $900 on dozens of products when you work with a PSE&G participating contractor. It’s more affordable than ever to make the switch to a more energy-efficient system.

Better yet, you may be eligible for up to $15,000 in no-interest on-bill repayment to help defer the cost of your energy efficiency 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.
