TENNESSEE VALLEY-The dog days of summer are not far away and about half of the energy used in the average
home each month is through a heating and cooling system.

That’s why the Tennessee Valley Authority is offering a $50 rebate to make sure those HVAC systems are operating as efficiently as possible.

To apply, it’s as simple as contacting your local power provider or going to energyright.com/rebates.

“It’s really simple to get a rebate for an HVAC tune-up,” said Ashley England, TVA Energy
Services and Programs manager. “As long as you’re using a member of our quality contractor
network, that member will go ahead and submit the paperwork for you to get your HVAC unit
tune-up rebate. You’ll get a confirmation email and you just need to click on the confirmation to
have a check sent to your house for $50.”

The list of quality contractors is on the EnergyRight website.

“We maintain the list of the quality contractor network so you can know you’re getting a
contractor who’s trained on the most updated energy efficiency practices, who’s vetted, who’s
licensed and insured and really we offer that to give you peace of mind that you’re going to get
quality work.”

Getting your HVAC checked regularly will prolong the life of the unit and save you money on
your energy bill because it will be running at maximum efficiency. Prices for the inspection
typically range from $49-$150, depending on the location and company.

“An inspector will look at the overall condition of the unit,” said TVA Home Energy Inspector
Terence Williams. “They’ll come in and check for any refrigerant leaks, they’ll look at electrical
wires to make sure they’re in good condition and charge the refrigerant if it’s low.”

If you need to replace your unit, TVA is offering rebates of up to $1,500 on qualifying equipment.
Anyone looking for a more comprehensive analysis of any potential energy waste in their home
can sign up for a TVA energy assessment.

“If you’re not sure where to start or if you’re not sure how to make your home more energy
efficient, you can get a home energy evaluation through EnergyRight and your local power
company,” added England. “In that evaluation, one of our expert home energy advisors will
come and do a full inspection of your home and let you know all of the ways you are losing
energy and give you a prioritized list of ways to save energy in your home.”

Since October 2023, TVA began investing $1.5 billion through 2028, to help homeowners and
businesses save money on their power bills, especially in the hot summer and cold winter
months, through energy efficiency incentives and demand response programs that help
consumers lower their energy use.
