Rebates Offered by A.J. Michaels
Current Rebate Incentives And New Available Programs
A.J. Michaels is a Maryland Home Performance with Energy Star Contractor, a BGE Smart Energy Savers Program Participating Contractor, and certified by the Building Performance Institute (BPI) to evaluate whole home performance. As such, we can offer rebates, incentives, special financing, and services that very few air conditioning and heating contractors can do.
In 2008 the Maryland Legislature passed the EmPowerment Maryland Energy Efficiency Act which mandated that the Maryland Energy Administration, working with utilities statewide and the contractor community, develop energy saving programs. Its purpose is to reduce the demand on our electrical grid in order to prevent severe electrical shortages and rolling black outs in the not too distant future without the need to build new power plants.
These initiatives provide you with opportunities to make your home more energy efficient, more comfortable, and to considerably lower your monthly operating costs for a substantially reduced investment.
Home Performance and HVAC rebates up to $7,500 are available through EmPower Maryland’s Performance Based Incentive program to make your home more comfortable and energy efficient. You must have a home energy audit performed to become eligible.
Contact us for additional details on all rebates and enjoy the comfort and savings that a professionally matched and installed cooling and heating system from A.J. Michaels can provide.

Whole Home Duct Sealing
Duct leakage in homes is a significant problem in most homes. A 20% duct leakage causes a 50% drop in your new HVAC system efficiency. This loss is significant. Rebates up to $750 off are available when combined with a home energy audit and home performance shell measures.
Home Energy Audits and Home Performance with ENERGY STAR
A $400 whole home energy audit can be performed by a participating contractor and your cost is only $100 as there is a $300 rebate. The auditor will then make recommendations to make you home more energy efficient using such measures as whole home duct sealing, insulation and air sealing. These measures are eligible for a rebate of up to $7,500.
Bonus Home Performance with Energy Star rebates are available for a limited time on weatherization measures for your home, including duct sealing, air sealing and insulation.
