Entergy Texas works with local distributors and contractors to encourage the installation of high-efficiency air-conditioning and heat pump units. Entergy Texas does not pay direct incentives to homeowners for this program. If you are a homeowner, please contact your local HVAC installer and ask about this distributor incentive.

Year-round comfort and energy savings

Are you thinking about replacing your air conditioner or heat pump? If your HVAC system is nearing the end of its useful life or not working properly, you should consider replacing your system with a new, high-efficiency model. If your system is greater than 10-15 years old, or you notice any of the following in your home, talk to your HVAC contractor about upgrading to a high-efficiency, high-SEER system:

  • Your equipment requires frequent repairs.
  • Monthly energy costs at your home have increased.
  • You notice that some rooms in your home are too hot or too cold.
  • Humidity or excessive dust are problems in your home.

Learn about your options before your system fails so you can make an informed purchase decision. Your contractor can help you understand how the investment in a high-SEER system can provide immediate benefits now and ongoing benefits for years to come.

Make sure to ask your contractor about high-efficiency HVAC equipment. You can enjoy:

  • Savings on qualifying high-SEER systems. SEER is the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, a measurement of how efficiently your system will operate over an entire season.
  • Improved comfort and performance that comes with an energy-efficient HVAC system.
  • Long-term energy savings and lower monthly energy costs.

You can learn more about high-efficiency HVAC systems by talking to your local HVAC contractor or by visiting energystar.gov.
