Before replacing an old, inefficient air conditioning system, SMUD recommends a Home Performance energy assessment to determine the most cost effective and efficient unit for your home. Your HPP contractor will verify the size and/or tonnage of the unit which may qualify you for additional rebates and greater financing.

Comprehensive Energy Assessment

Home Performance Program (HPP) starts with a Comprehensive Energy Assessment. Find out if your home is leaking energy with SMUD's Home Performance Program. Starting with the comprehensive energy assessment, you'll learn where your home's losing energy and how to save. Your HPP contractor will provide you with a report highlighting recommended upgrades, rebate amount, and a quote to complete the work. Only a SMUD qualified Home Performance contractor can conduct this assessment and install recommended upgrades. Find a contractor.
