2024 HVAC Rebates for Washington, DC & Virginia Residents

Smiling woman looking at her laptop

At United Air Temp, we’re committed to helping promote a future of green energy, all while ensuring that our customers receive superior comfort.

With premium heating and cooling systems and HVAC rebates in Washington, DC, and Virginia, we’re able to accomplish both.

Plenty of incentives are available to homeowners who upgrade to more energy-efficient units. There’s never been a better time to invest in your home comfort system. 

What’s the Difference Between Tax Credits & Rebates?

When it comes to financial incentives, there are different ways to save. The Inflation Reduction Act was signed into law in 2022, and the U.S. received the largest investment in climate change and cleaner energy.

Since 2023, the tax credits offered under this law reduce the income taxes you owe and are typically either 30% of the investment or a set dollar amount. Rebates, on the other hand, offer either an upfront discount or cash back after your purchase.

What Federal Programs Are There for Home Energy Rebates?

There are currently two programs that offer home energy rebates at the point of sale. These rebate programs are funded by grants given to state energy offices so they can offer incentives to homeowners upgrading their HVAC systems.

Virginia will receive $188,524,540 to be shared by these two programs. The application process is in progress, and incentives should be available to VA homeowners in early 2025

The Department of Energy & Environment is also developing an application for Washington, DC, to receive nearly $60 million but has not provided an approximate date.

HVAC Rebates for Washington, DC Homeowners

Separate from Home Energy Rebates, Washington, DC, already offers the District of Columbia Sustainable Energy Utility Rebates. This includes the following qualifying products:

  • Ductless mini-splits: Tier 1 systems with a $375 rebate must be rated a minimum of 15.2 SEER2 or 7.8 HSPF2. Tier 2 systems with a $700 rebate must be rated at least 16 SEER2 or 9 HSPF2.
  • Air-source heat pumps: Identical to ductless mini-splits, tier 1 products are eligible for a $375 rebate if they’re rated 15.2 SEER2 or 7.8 HSPF2 or higher. Tier 2 units equate to a $700 rebate if the system is rated above 16 SEER2 or 9 HSPF2.
  • Central air conditioners: Tier 1 units must be rated 15.2 SEER2 or higher for homeowners to receive a $250 rebate. Tier 2 systems must be 16 SEER2 or higher for a $375 rebate.
  • Thermostats: Homeowners are eligible for up to a $25 rebate for programmable thermostats and up to a $50 rebate for smart thermostats.

HVAC Rebates From Virginia Utility Providers

While waiting for state funding for Home Energy Rebates, Virginia homeowners may currently be eligible for rebates provided by utility providers, including:

Are There Any Exclusions for HVAC Rebates?

Federal and local incentives do have a few exclusions, including:

  • High-income households: If your household earns more than 150% of the area’s median income, you are not eligible for the Home Electrification and Appliance Rebates Program.
  • New construction properties: The Energy Efficient Home Improvement Credit Rebates are unavailable for any new builds. However, there are tax credits for home builders.
  • Multiple federal incentives for the same system: While homeowners can combine local and federal incentives, you cannot apply for multiple federal credits for the same piece of equipment.
  • Annual limits: Most programs provide annual limits for any incentives, so you may need to plan your upgrades over a few years to maximize your savings. 
  • Retroactive incentives: Any system installed before the Inflation Reduction Act was passed in 2022 is not eligible for today’s rebate or tax credit. However, there were smaller incentives in place before 2022 that you could’ve qualified for.

What Our Clients Are Saying
testimonial_image The tech was at my home less than 10 minutes and gone within 20 minutes due to having my A/C up and running. I really appreciate his response to my home and working with my son due to me being out of town, but we spoke on the phone.
testimonial_image The technician arrived promptly, wore a mask, was very courteous and professional. I am generally very satisfied with service by United Air Temp. In addition to good service (they repair well), it is easy to speak to a person, and promptly. Thank you.
testimonial_image Great service! I called because I was under the impression the AC was not working upstairs. Someone came on the same day, checked out the system, and ensured everything was working. He was polite, thorough, and friendly.
testimonial_image Tech was very attentive and professional. He went out his way to explain everything to me as he was doing it. I appreciated him keeping me informed.
testimonial_image The service technician was awesome! He spent the extra time necessary to ensure the leak in our system was fixed, the system fully recharged and everything was functioning as it should. He was extremely thorough and very professional. We are extremely pleased with the result!
