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, heat pumps and air-duct sealing.

If you are going to be doing multiple improvements, our Home Performance Program may be for you.
