HVAC Motor Replacement Program
Tampa Electric's HVAC Motor Replacement program was developed to improve your home's heating, ventilating, and air conditioning system. The program, available to residential customers, enables you to earn a $115 rebate when you have your existing heating and cooling system retrofitted with a high-efficiency electronically commutated motor (ECM). The high-efficiency motor is designed to make your system operate more efficiently and help reduce your energy costs.
- Work must be performed by a licensed HVAC contractor.
- The system must have ducted heating and/or cooling.
- The rebate applies to the installation of a new ECM on a system that does not have a variable-speed motor. The new ECM cannot replace an existing ECM.
Acquiring your rebate
Please have the following information available before you start completing the HVAC Motor Replacement rebate application. You will be prompted to upload this information which is required for rebate processing.
- Paid receipt/invoice (proof of purchase)
- Manufacturer's motor specifications
Please note:Tampa Electric requires the contractor to deduct the rebate amount from the customer's invoice and show the rebate amount as a separate line item on the customer's invoice. Once this is complete, the rebate will be paid directly to the contractor. Tampa Electric verifies the installation of at least 10 percent of all ECM installations to ensure compliance with the program standards. You may receive a call from one of Tampa Electric's "verifying contractors" to schedule a short inspection of the work completed. For additional information, call 813-275-3909.
