Our homes are so much more than just a place to live. It’s where many of us work, learn, relax and have fun. And when it comes to being comfortable in your New Jersey home, your heating and cooling systems are the at the heart of it. They are essential to the operation of your home and your family’s comfort. There’s nothing worse than your heating system breaking down on a cold winter day or your cooling system coming to a standstill during an uncomfortable heat wave.

As you may be spending more time at home, the need for comfort is increasing, along with the demands on your heating system and cooling system. If your heating system and cooling system are more than ten years old, your systems have needed repairs or you’ve been struggling to achieve comfortable temperatures in your home, it’s a good idea to start thinking about a replacement plan now.

Here are some things to add to your checklist:

  • Research heating and cooling system efficiency. The higher the rating, the less energy the unit uses.
  • Investigate new features. Look for upgrades that can help make your home and family more comfortable.
  • Expectations for optimal home comfort. Evaluate your family’s needs and expectations to make sure your new heating and cooling system will meet your requirements.
  • Consider replacing both systems at the same time. Even if one system is still working, you’ll save on labor expenses by installing both units at the same time, in addition to helping maintain maximum system efficiency and longevity.
  • Look for rebates and incentives. By purchasing high-efficiency equipment, you’ll save money on your utility bills and may also qualify for rebates from New Jersey’s Clean Energy Program™ and, for customers of New Jersey Natural Gas, The SAVEGREEN Project® (SAVEGREEN).

New Jersey’s Clean Energy Program™ (NJCEP)
Rebates are available with the purchase and installation of eligible high-efficiency AC and heating systems. For more information on NJCEP, including equipment eligibility requirements and program dates, visit the Residential section of njcleanenergy.com.
