Ceiling insulation repair rebate
Upgrading the insulation in your attic keeps conditioned air from escaping through the ceiling. Reduced air loss makes your heating or cooling system more efficient and supports lower utility bills.
The OUC offers a rebate on ceiling insulation. Any homeowner whose current insulation has an R-value under 30 is eligible for the rebate. You can find the R-value printed on the batts, the fiberglass material, of your current insulation.
The rebate covers 10 cents per square foot of insulation. The new insulation must have an R-value of 30 or more, but any brand of fiberglass insulation is fair game.
This rebate offers a major perk for fans of DIY projects: professional HVAC installation is not required. You’re welcome to replace the insulation yourself. If you aren’t experienced with insulation, our network of top Orlando technicians can get the job done.
Heat pump / AC rebate
Heat pumps are a great option for year-round heating and cooling in Orlando. The system operates like an AC during the summer. While the heating mode isn’t powerful enough for freezing climates, it’s perfect for mild Floridian winters.
Any OUC customer is eligible for the rebate. To apply for the rebate, you must buy or lease a complete central heat pump system. This includes both the indoor (air handler) and outdoor (condenser) units.
Depending on the capacity and energy efficiency of the new heat pump, you could earn anywhere from $90 to $1,630 credit. The table below shows exactly how much you’ll earn back.
