Cooling Equipment

Note: Select energy efficiency programs for existing homes are transitioning to the utility companies

To learn more about this transition and for utility contact information please visit this page.

Utility customers who purchased appliances or HVAC equipment prior to July 1, 2021 may still submit their projects to NJCEP’s Appliance Rebate Program or the WARM/COOL Advantage Program for heating, cooling, and water heating equipment. Customers will have 180 days to submit their rebate. Appliances and HVAC equipment purchased on or after July 1, 2021 will be eligible for utility-run rebate programs.

The Appliance Recycling Program will no longer be available beginning July 1, 2021. All appliance pick-ups through NJCEP must be completed by June 30, 2021. Please contact your utility for more information about available recycling programs if you are unable to schedule a Recycling Pickup before June 30, 2021. 

The COOLAdvantage Program provides rebates for qualifying high efficiency central air conditioners, ductless mini-split AC units and heat pumps. To be eligible, you must purchase, install, and operate a system that meets all applicable efficiency requirements. Call 866-NJSMART or see below for detailed information.

For a status update of processing COOL and WARMAdvantage applications, please visit the HVAC Portal landing page. Please allow up to 150 days to receive your rebate.

Enhanced Incentives

Please note that all homeowners located in a designated Urban Enterprise Zone (UEZ) may be eligible for an additional $200 incentive per unit for the purchase of qualifying equipment (above). Verification of homes being located in a designated UEZ required. Also, low to moderate income (LMI) residents or projects identified as an affordable housing project may be eligible for an incentive of $200 per each eligible measure. Residents may benefit from only one bonus incentive: UEZ, LMI or affordable housing incentive. Apply here for the LMI incentive. Visit the eligible measures document for the affordable housing definition. 

Eligible Equipment

Heat pump rebate amounts are based on the unit's SEER, EER and HSPF ratings and documentation that the proper installation requirements have been met. All three rating factors must meet minimum requirements in order to qualify for a rebate (except for geothermal).

Application Form

Note:   The State Energy Program (SEP) funding threshold has been met and therefore we are no longer accepting and processing SEP applications for oil, propane and municipal electric customers.

Homes constructed under NJ's Residential New Construction Program are not eligible to receive COOLAdvantage Program rebates.
