Appliance and HVAC Rebates

The DCSEU offers $35 rebates on qualifying dehumidifiers and $50–$700 rebates on select ENERGY STAR® certified clothes washers, clothes dryers, smart thermostats, refrigerators, heat pumps, and electric water heaters.

After August 20, 2021, in line with District policy and the Clean Energy DC Plan, the DCSEU will no longer offer rebates for residential natural gas equipment in the Efficient Products program. This includes rebates for residential gas dryers, furnaces, boilers, and water heaters. To help residents make the transition to efficient electric heat pumps and heat pump water heaters, the DCSEU has increased rebates for the most efficient heat pumps and heat pump water heaters. 

All other rebate amounts are good through December 31, 2021.
