Air Conditioners

Keep comfortably cool inside your home when the temperature rises outside.

Upgrade to a high efficiency model and get rebates up to $500.

How it works

If you are a DTE residential electric customer, you may be eligible for a rebate when you upgrade to a new, high-efficiency central air conditioning unit.

A participating contractor will come to your home with information about models that qualify for rebates.

After you select a new model, your contractor will:

  • Properly size your system for maximum efficiency and comfort.
  • Remove your old equipment and install your new unit.
  • Fill out and submit a rebate form for you online.
  • Your rebate check will arrive by mail in six to eight weeks.

New construction and first-time installations are not eligible for this program.

Please consult your contractor regarding system eligibility and efficiency rating requirements.

For more information, please call us toll free, (866) 796-0512, or email us.

SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) measures the energy efficiency of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment. The higher the SEER rating, the more efficient your equipment runs, lowering your energy use and saving you money.

*AHRI eligibility for split system central air conditioners are based on installation of matched outdoor unit, indoor coil and furnace. Rebates are available for 15 SEER or higher air conditioning units. Each requires AHRI certification that, when installed, the package of the equipment meets the specified SEER.  Since these efficiency levels are above those required for ENERGY STAR certification, an efficient furnace upgrade may be necessary to meet the SEER requirement. Air source and ground source heat pumps are eligible for electric customers replacing an existing heat pump and who use electricity for their main home heating source.

**Ductless mini-splits are eligible for electric customers replacing existing ductless mini-splits or electric resistance heating and use electricity for their main home heating source.

† Premise eligibility is limited to single family homes. Single family homes are defined as 2 or less connected units. Each unit must be individually metered for natural gas and electric and each unit must have its own heating, cooling and water heating equipment.
