Electronically Commutated Motors
Install an electronically commutated motor, get $100
Have an HVAC contractor install a new fan-forced heating system with an efficient electronically commutated motor (ECM), and we’ll give you a $100 rebate.
The benefits of ECMs
ECMs distribute warm air from your furnace or cool air from your central air conditioner throughout your home. However, because they have an adjustable-speed design, they do this using 75% less energy than a standard fan motor, which typically runs on a high, less-efficient setting most of the time.
ECMs also offer improved indoor comfort:
- Maintaining more consistent temperatures
- Less temperature extremes
- Less airborne dust
- A quieter system
Program eligibility and details
To qualify for the rebate, you’ll need to ensure that your new heating system includes an ECM, and is installed by an HVAC contractor. If ECM is integrated into the heat pump it does not qualify for a rebate. Rebates for these are inclusive under our heat pump rebate program.
If you have any questions about program eligibility, contact our Idea Center or call 800-493-3299 during business hours.
