An ENERGY STAR® certified a smart thermostat can help provide household comfort, real energy savings, and lower energy bills.
Texas law prevents us from offering programs directly to residential customers. All of our programs are implemented by third-party contractors.
If you are interested in energy-efficiency upgrades to your home and have an annual total household income that is less than 200% of current federal poverty guidelines, learn more about our Residential Energy Efficiency Program or view a list of participating agencies.
Here are some tips that can help make a difference in the amount of electricity you use and money you save:
Just as a tune-up for your car can improve your gas mileage, a yearly tune-up of your heating and cooling system can improve efficiency and comfort.
A Coolsaver A/C Tune-up may improve the cooling output and efficiency of your air conditioning unit by up to 27%. A Coolsaver qualified technician will identify ways to improve the efficiency of your air conditioner (A/C) and implement any recommended improvements.

Heating and cooling represent about 50% of your home's energy use. If you replace your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system with a more energy-efficient model, you can earn incentives that can be applied to your installation invoice from participating contractors, depending on system size and the system’s seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) rating level.
When an A/C unit works efficiently, it uses less energy to cool your home. The SEER rating divides your system’s annual cooling output during the cooling season by the total electric energy input for the year. The resulting ratio measures your A/C’s cooling efficiency. The higher the SEER rating, the more energy efficient the system. The current minimum SEER standard for an A/C in Texas is 14; our rebates start at 16 SEER.

Your pool pump could be your home’s second largest energy user, costing you nearly $500 in energy every year!
Variable speed pool pumps:
Conventional pool pumps use the same high pump speed regardless of the task assigned, even though filtration, the number one task of a pool pump, requires one-half the speed (using one-eighth the power) of pool vacuuming. Variable speed pool pumps deliver the right speed for different tasks, using much less energy.
Your pool pump may show these warning signs of wearing out and wasting energy:
If so, it could be time to call a pool services contractor. Select from our
