COOLAdvantage Program

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 energy efficient central air conditioners or heat pumps as well as "best practices" on proper sizing and installation that affect operating efficiency. 

Do you first need a little guidance to help you make home energy upgrade decisions?  Review our "customer journey" to determine if you are experiencing any of the problems mentioned in your home.

For a status update of processing COOL and WARMAdvantage applications, please visit the HVAC Portal landing page. At this time it could take up to 150 days to receive your rebate.

Apply Online!

It is highly recommended that customers or contractors submit applications online for quick and easy submissions. The HVAC portal may also be accessed and utilized via Tablet and Smart Phones (Android, iPhone).

Note: Any heating and/or cooling equipment you install under New Jersey's Clean Energy Program may be subject to random verification inspections conducted by the program team.  Call 866-NJSMART should you have any questions.

COOLAdvantage Checklist

  • Call Us.
    Call 866-NJSMART to learn how to reduce your energy bill and receive rebates for choosing energy efficient equipment.  This HVAC Program Guide can help you understand what to expect as you apply for the rebate.
  • Get the Most for your Money.
    Select a properly trained contractor certified by North American Technician Excellence (NATE). It's not just the quality of the equipment installed, it's also the quality of the installation. It takes good training and advanced technology to properly install today's high efficiency equipment.
  • Don't Cool the Outdoors.
    Before putting in a new air conditioner or heat pump, schedule a Home Performance assessment to find out where energy is being wasted. If your home does not have enough insulation, or leaks too much air, even the most efficient unit will waste energy.

Note: Homes constructed under NJ's Residential New Construction Program are not eligible for the COOLAdvantage Program.
