The Rebate Programs

Florida’s Home Energy Rebate programs come with two big deals: Whole Home Rebates (HOMES) and Home Electrification and Appliance Rebates (HEAR). These programs are designed to help you save energy and cut down on your utility bills by offering financial help for home upgrades.

Whole Home Rebates (HOMES)

The HOMES program gives you cash back for making energy-saving improvements to your home:

  • Rebate Amounts: Get back between $2,000 and $4,000, depending on how much energy your upgrades save.
  • Extra Help for Low- and Moderate-Income Homes: If your income qualifies, your rebate could double, meaning you might get up to $8,000 to help with your energy-saving projects.
  • What Qualifies?: This program covers upgrades like better insulation, air sealing, and new HVAC systems. These improvements can make a big dent in your energy bills.

Home Electrification and Appliance Rebates (HEAR)

The Home Electrification and Appliance Rebates (HEAR) program is a great way for low- and moderate-income households to get help buying and installing high-efficiency appliances. Here’s the lowdown:

  • Rebate Cap: You can get up to $14,000 per household, and there are some additional caps for some equipment types.
  • Eligible Appliances: The HEAR program covers a variety of high-efficiency appliances, such as:
    • Heat pump water heaters
    • Electric heat pumps for space heating and cooling
    • Duct sealing ad air sealing
    • Insulation 
    • Advanced electric heating and cooling systems
  • Income Eligibility: To qualify, your household income must be less than 150% of the Area Median Income (AMI).

The HOMES and HEAR programs are game-changers for Florida’s energy future. They offer big financial incentives, making it easier for you to not only lower your utility bills but also make your home more comfortable and sustainable. 

Plus, this initiative is part of a larger effort to build a more resilient and energy-efficient infrastructure across Florida, benefiting everyone.

Why Florida Energy Rebates Matter for Millian Aire Customers

The newly approved energy efficiency rebate programs bring a lot of benefits to Millian Aire customers. Let’s get into how these advantages can really make a difference for you:

Immediate Cost Savings

By jumping on the Whole Home Rebates (HOMES) and Home Electrification and Appliance Rebates (HEAR) programs, you can significantly cut down the initial costs of installing new, energy-efficient systems. These rebates can cover a big chunk of your project costs:

Depending on the upgrades and the energy savings they achieve, rebates can be between $2,000 and $8,000, depending on your income level and the energy efficiency improvements you make.

Home Comfort

Florida is heating up quickly this summer, with temperatures soaring into the 90s already in and around Tampa. Upgrading to an energy-efficient system can make you a lot more comfortable, allowing you to run your HVAC colder without paying more. 

Energy-efficient HVAC systems keep indoor temperatures steady and eliminate hot and cold spots. These efficient systems are better at managing humidity levels – super important in Florida’s humid climate to prevent mold and mildew.

Advanced filtration and ventilation features improve indoor air quality by reducing pollutants, allergens, and other harmful particles, which is especially important for households with members who suffer from allergies or respiratory issues.

Increased Property Value

Buyers recognize the long-term savings and environmental benefits of homes equipped with energy-efficient systems, making these homes more desirable in the real estate market.This is important, as Tampa is one of the few places with falling home prices.

Energy-efficient homes sell at a premium compared to homes with standard systems because potential buyers are willing to pay more for homes that promise lower utility costs and a reduced environmental footprint. The higher price, pared with your rebate, may mean you can actually make money from installing an efficient HVAC system if you’re planning on selling your home. 

Even if you’re not planning to sell, energy-efficient upgrades are a smart long-term investment. They provide immediate savings on energy bills while enhancing the value of your home and its attractiveness to homebuyers. This makes it a win-win for homeowners looking to improve their living conditions while increasing their property’s worth.
