SMUD Rebates for Home Performance

SMUD Rebates for Home Performance

SMUD’s Home Performance Program (HPP) gives you the ability to improve your whole home’s energy performance, increasing its efficiency and saving you more money. An approved SMUD Home Energy Upgrade Contractor of your choice will conduct a full energy review of your home and present a recommended upgrade plan. Once you approve their plan, they’ll provide the upgrades and handle all the SMUD Home Performance Rebate paperwork for you. The SMUD Home Performance Program is an easy and inexpensive way to improve your home’s energy efficiency. McDonald Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning (MPHAC) is a local expert in home energy performance, and one of the few approved vendors for both SMUD and PG&E assessments, improvements and rebates.


SMUD Home Energy Upgrade Contractors

To be eligible for your SMUD Home Rebate, you’ll need to choose a SMUD approved contractor from a comprehensive list. The Building Performance Institute has set standards that each contractor must meet, including training in building science and technology. As with any contractor, practice due diligence and get references. McDonald Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning has a solid reputation with extensive testimonials from local clients. We are happy to talk with you about our experience and answer all your questions about SMUD Home Performance Upgrades and SMUD Rebates.


SMUD Home Performance Assessments and Upgrades

When your McDonald Plumbing contractor arrives, they’ll discuss the SMUD Upgrade and Rebate Program with you and answer your questions. Then they will conduct a complete assessment of your home’s energy systems. Examples of the systems they’ll assess include


  • HVAC unit and ducts
  • Attic, crawlspace and wall insulation
  • Air sealing and air quality
  • Window condition
  • Domestic hot water
  • Thermostats
  • Whole house fans
  • Lighting fixtures
  • Pool pumps


Your McDonald Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning SMUD Home Performance expert has extensive SMUD-related training in addition to years of experience serving local customers. You’ll benefit from our expertise and dedication to empowering customers like you to enjoy a comfortable home and affordable energy bills.


IMPORTANT: To qualify for your SMUD Home Performance Rebate, you must select a SMUD Home Energy Upgrade Contractor to perform the upgrades as part of a comprehensive plan. That means single-item upgrades do not qualify for the rebate, such as only an attic insulation or thermostat upgrade.


SMUD Performance Upgrade and Rebate Process

Following the assessment, we’ll discuss where energy is being lost and provide you with a detailed report of our recommended performance upgrades, as well as the total SMUD Home Rebate amount available to you. Each element of your home’s energy system is a potential source of savings for you. You’ll be eligible for up to $5,000 in rebates if your home is heated with gas and $8,000 if it’s heated with electric. Average annual savings for customers is approximately 15% off their electric bill.
