Rebates for Colorado

Home Comfort Rebates & Tax Incentives

As a leading residential and commercial HVAC contractor based in the Vail Valley, we pay close attention to rebates, tax credits and special offers. Our goal is to provide maximum savings to every customer we serve. 

When we consult with homeowners and businesses, we help them find the right equipment that qualifies for the most savings. We supply and install central and ductless mini-split AC and heating systems from different manufacturers, allowing us to help you find the best possible deal on cost-effective, reliable units that deliver outstanding comfort while letting you take advantage of every possible opportunity to save on the initial cost.

Rebates can save you up to $10,000.

Below, you’ll find information on how to get maximum savings by choosing models that also cost you less every month on your electric bill.

Sample project:
Project amount: $20,000
Holy Cross rebate: ($4,000)
Walking Mountains rebate: ($4,000)
Income tax rebate: ($1,200)
Net project cost: $10,800 - a 46% savings!

Going green helps not only the environment but also your wallet.  There are many utilities and government agencies that are providing financial incentives to help you make the move to more efficient heating and cooling systems.  

When you install a new or replacement central or ductless air conditioning/heating system, you can realize big savings by choosing a high-efficiency model with a SEER rating over 16. The higher the SEER number, the more you’ll save. 

Naturally, the initial cost of these high-efficiency systems is higher than a standard 13 SEER air conditioner or 80% efficient furnace. By taking advantage of rebates from manufacturers and energy companies, seasonal discounts and federal tax credits, though, you can offset that higher cost.

Colorado utilities are making a big push to "go green" and reduce or eliminate the use of fossil fuels for our energy needs.  To incentivize their customers to electrify their home heating and cooling systems, two programs have been rolled out:

Incentives From Walking Mountains

Up to $4,000 residential electrification rebate when you switch from natural gas to an electric system.  Learn more about saving money when you make the switch. 

Incentives From Holy Cross

Rebate amount equal to 25% of the project cost up to $4,000 when switching from natural gas to an electric system.  Learn more about saving money when you make the switch.  

Incentive From Black Hills Energy

Rebates up to $1,500 available depending on work being performed. Learn more about saving money.

Listed below are some of the incentives available for homeowners in 2022. More are coming in 2023, so check back often to see what incentives are available for your home!
