How Do I Participate?
For installations completed January 1, 2018 – December 31, 2018:
I am a landlord of a residential property with a ComEd account. Can I receive a rebate?
Yes, a landlord may participate and receive a rebate for the purchase and installation of qualifying equipment. If the landlord holds the ComEd account, the landlord may apply for the rebate as the account holder. If the account is in the tenant’s name but the property owner or manager is purchasing and installing qualifying equipment in the unit, the tenant may allow the landlord to apply for a rebate using the tenant’s ComEd account information. The tenant must provide his or her ComEd account information and sign the customer rebate authorization section on the rebate application, releasing payment to the landlord.
When are applications due?
For installations completed January 1, 2018 – December 31, 2018, applications must be submitted within 60 days of installation or by February 28, 2019, whichever comes first. The product must be installed and fully operational prior to submitting a rebate application.
Can I receive more than one rebate for the same type of equipment or product?
Participants may receive more than one rebate for the same type of equipment if all rebate requirements are met, except for the ductless heat pump rebate. Limit of one ductless heat pump rebate per home.
You may select any equipment that meets the rebate requirements. Consult the list of rebate requirements in the
Heating and Cooling Rebates Eligibility Catalog. Work with a
ComEd Residential Trade Ally to select equipment that meets your home’s needs and the minimum efficiency requirements to qualify for the available rebate(s). Equipment that requires a minimum Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) must be verified at the required minimum efficiency by
AHRI to qualify for a rebate.
Need help selecting a product?
The ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient list recognizes this year’s exceptional products on the leading edge in energy efficiency; choose Most Efficient products to help achieve the largest rebate and highest efficiency rating available.
Do I have to use a specific installing contractor?
Yes, use of a ComEd Residential Heating and Cooling Trade Ally (or Geothermal Trade Ally) for the installation of your qualifying equipment is required to receive ComEd rebates.
New Illinois legislation regarding the Administrative Rules for Certification of Energy Efficiency Installers have impacted the ComEd Energy Efficiency Program incentive payment requirements. As a result, ComEd requires contractors to provide Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC) certification to join the ComEd Heating and Cooling Trade Ally (or Geothermal Trade Ally) Network and install qualifying heating and cooling equipment for customer rebate eligibility. Additionally, to become a ComEd Geothermal Trade Ally, contractors must be accredited by the Geothermal Alliance of Illinois (GAOI) and trained to install qualifying geothermal heat pump projects for ComEd customers. Contact an approved ComEd Geothermal Trade Ally to learn more about geothermal rebates.
Are room air conditioners eligible for rebates?
Yes, select ENERGY STAR room air conditioners qualify for rebates. Visit
Appliance Rebates for details.
How can I check on the status of my rebate?
If you applied for your rebate using the online Heating and Cooling Rebates Application, you can use your last name and account number to check the status of your rebate at

How long will it take to receive my rebate?
