Quality Install Cooling

Studies have shown that more than 75% of central air conditioners are operating below their rated performance. This causes wasted energy, decreases comfort, and shortens the life of air conditioning equipment. These problems can be addressed when units are properly installed and maintained.

That is why we have developed the high efficiency cooling rebate. To qualify for the rebate, the air source heat pump must be installed by a qualified HVAC contractor that has successfully completed the HVAC/R Education qualifications and testing.

Residential members of Stearns Electric Association who purchase and install a qualifying air source heat pump from one of our registered contractors may receive a rebate. Qualifying units must be purchased and installed by a registered contractor between January 1, 2023 and December 31, 2023.
