Heating and Cooling Rebates

If your heating and cooling systems are old, they're probably inefficient. Replacing them can trim your energy bills. SMUD offers rebates on energy-efficient central air conditioning systems, room air conditioners, whole-house fans, heat pumps, air-duct sealing and even Cool Roofs.

You can apply for most rebates in your SMUD My Account. If you are going to be doing multiple improvements, our Home Performance Program may be for you.
