Did you know that you could be losing up to 20% of the heated or cooled air in your home through leaky ducts? That means that you could be paying a lot of money to heat or cool an attic or floor crawl space instead of a room in your home or business. Properly sealed and installed ductwork can make your heating and air conditioning system operate more efficiently and reduce operating costs.

When you test and seal your HVAC ducts, you may qualify for a rebate of up to $200 from Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) if you meet the requirements and conditions of the program.

Duct Sealing Rebate Requirements and Conditions

  1. You must have an active residential single family or small commercial PG&E electric account
  2. Installation must take place at a PG&E service address
  3. You must be located in Climate Zones 2, 4, 11, 12, or 13
  4. Individual systems must be between 1.5 and 7 tons cooling capacity
  5. Air conditioning systems with multiple compressors and economizers are not eligible
  6. Multiple systems at the same address are eligible
  7. If duct leakage is less than 15% of fan flow (the volume of heated or cooled air that comes out of the registers), no repairs are required and no incentive will be provided
  8. You must not have had previous duct test and seal work completed on your home within the past six years funded under a Utility administered program
  9. You must have an existing central air conditioning or heat pump or replace an old central air conditioning or heat pump system with a new system
  10. New system installed when no prior equipment was present will not qualify; state building code already requires a duct test on these systems
  11. All work is subject to validation prior to payment. A refusal to allow PG&E to perform an on-site validation of the work performed may result in a declined rebate payment
  12. Actual rebate amounts are based on a variety of factors, including age of your central air conditioning system and the system's Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER)
  13. Incentives vary based on the cost to seal the ducts and whether the central air conditioning equipment is existing or a new high efficiency unit is being installed as a replacement in your residence. The incentives are paid only when ducts are sealed
