SEER 14/15: $650
SEER 16/Greater: $850
Kansas City Power and Light (KCP&L) offers rebates to residential customers to help offset the cost of replacing inefficient central AC and heat pump systems with newer, more efficient models. In order to qualify for a rebate, the system being replaced must have an EER of 8.0 or less, as tested by a CheckMe!-trained HVAC contractor. The replacement of "dead" systems will not be supported under this program because these systems cannot be tested. New systems must have a minimum SEER of 14 in order to receive the basic $650 rebate. Systems with a SEER of 16 or higher can receive a rebate of $850.
Customers do not need to fill out any paperwork to obtain this incentive. The rebate is paid to the installing HVAC contractor who then passes it on in the form of a credit on the billing invoice. For further information on this program, including a list of qualified contractors, customers should consult the program web site.
Customers may qualify for basic maintenance services to help tune-up qualifying equipment, even if they do not purchase a new system.
