HVAC Tune-Uparrows



In addition to your regularly scheduled maintenance visit, MidAmerican Energy offers rebates with the HVAC Tune-Up program to offset the cost of increasing the efficiency of existing heating and cooling equipment and ductwork. Be sure to ask your contractor to advise you on the possibility of qualifying for this program's performance rebates BEFORE the contractor begins maintenance on the heating or cooling system. In order to qualify for the HVAC Tune-Up program performance rebates, a SAVE-certified contractor must:

  • Perform an efficiency check and additional testing, which are above and beyond the normal semi-annual maintenance tasks
  • Verify performance improvements during the service call
  • Confirm that tune-up results in a minimum number of SAVE points performance improvement; this number varies by equipment (10 equipment SAVE points or 12 duct SAVE points)
Customers can schedule a regular maintenance or equipment replacement with a participating contractor. The HVAC contractor tests and determines whether the existing equipment is eligible for an incentive when performing an equipment tune-up. The HVAC contractor tests to determine whether the existing ductwork is eligible for a rebate.
