Heating, Cooling, Water Heating

For Residential Customers in Illinois

Making smart decisions about your home’s heating, cooling and water heating systems can have a big effect on your utility bills – and your comfort. Approximately half of the energy used in your home goes to heating and cooling.

System Adjustment and Verified Efficiency (SAVE) certification assures you purchase the most appropriate, energy-efficient system for your home, and that it's installed correctly for optimum savings and comfort. To receive eligible rebates on new HVAC equipment, MidAmerican Energy requires that an HVAC SAVE certified contractor tests and verifies your equipment.
