Get $1,000 Back When You Switch From Gas to a High Efficiency Heat Pump

You could qualify for a $1,000 rebate and save around $700 on cooling and heating costs each year. 

Heat pumps are the most energy-efficient and economical way to keep your home comfortable year-round. When you choose one with a high energy efficiency rating, you can benefit from additional cost savings, and for a limited time, a $1,000 rebate. A unit with a high SEER rating may stake casinocost more initially, but because of its low operating cost, it will pay for itself over time. Learn more about the eligibility requirements below. 

Eligibility

Applicants must:

  • Be an active residential customer of Alabama Power
  • Be the property owner
  • Switch to an all-electric heat pump from a gas furnace
  • Complete a W-9 for rebate processing

The heat pump must:

  • Be the dominant (largest) HVAC unit in the home

  • Have an energy efficiency rating of 20 SEER or 18 SEER2 or higher

  • This rebate may be subject to an onsite inspection by Alabama Power personnel. If the application information is deemed false, the customer will be expected to repay the rebate amount.

Energy Efficiency Rating

Whatever type heat pump you choose, the efficiency rating of the equipment is very important. Heat pumps are rated by a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER). The higher the SEER, the greater the efficiency and the less it costs you to cool your home. The rating is much like the MPG rating for an automobile. The minimum SEER rating on equipment manufactured today is 15 SEER. While units rated 15 SEER provide savings, we suggest at least 20 SEER or 18 SEER2 for even more savings. SEER2 rating stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio 2. This is the new main energy efficiency ratio introduced by the US Department of Energy in 2023. While it’s based on the same calculation as SEER, it’s tested under different conditions. Higher SEER-rated equipment is widely available and efficiency ratings will vary according to the BTUH size and brand selection. A unit with a high SEER rating may stake casinocost more initially, but because of its low operating cost, it will pay for itself over time.
