How to Claim TECO Rebates In 3 Steps

No one can deny that energy costs are soaring high. Some estimates show that average American homes spend more than $2,000.00 per year on electricity alone. This is what makes the program such a benefit to people in Florida. To collect rebates, all you have to do is take steps to lower your energy bills and watch the money come back to you.

This can sometimes be easier said than done, though. Companies, both big and small, often offer rebates to customers as an incentive to have them buy certain products. TECO does the same. It usually works well for everyone.

However, many people forget to collect their rebates. This leaves companies like Menard's with a bigger profit. DoNotPay can help you avoid the cycle and collect the rebates that you have coming.

What Are TECO Energy Rebates?

A is an incentive offered by the power company to both help you and reduce wasted energy. Therefore, you will find that there are rebates available for virtually anything you want to do to save energy in your home. This includes:

  • Improving Your Ductwork
  • Improving Your Heating or Cooling System
  • Improving Your Windows by Adding Energy Efficient Ones
  • Improving the Insulation in Your Ceiling
  • Improving the Efficiency of Your Pool Pump

Basically, any improvements that you make to your new or existing home may qualify for rebates.

Who Qualifies for a TECO Energy Rebate?

To ensure you get the rebates you deserve, you only need to be able to provide a valid account number for Tampa Electric. However, this does not mean the rest of it is easy.

There are stipulations that must be met to ensure you get the rebate in full. For instance:

  • Your Contractor Receives the Rebate Cash

When you are a Tampa Electric client, you must have a contractor deduct the rebate from your invoice, if applicable. This deduction will have its own line on the invoice. The rebate is then paid in full to the contractor after they complete the rebate form. You still get the rebate if you hire a contractor, but it comes to you in savings rather than a profit later.

If you do the work yourself, you will need to fill out the TECO rebate form within 90 days of installation.

  • Documents to Include When Seeking Rebates

When you submit the rebate form, you will need to provide either the AHRI reference sheet or your paid receipt/invoice to show proof of purchase.

  • Hired Contractors Must Be Registered

Tampa Electric requires contractors to be registered, or they will not be able to collect rebates or pass on those savings to you. The registration provides them with an eight-digit vendor number that must be on rebate applications.

Therefore, before you hire someone to do the work on your home, you may want to ensure that they can provide you with rebate discounts.

Please note that some restrictions do apply when you want to try and cash in on TECO Peoples Gas rebates. Some of the main restrictions that will ensure you DO NOT get rebates are

  1. Equipment with Purchase Receipts Older than One Year
  2. Installing Used/Refurbished Appliances (Including those purchased from eBay, Goodwill, Habitat for Humanity, and other thrift stores)
  3. All Propane Conversions
  4. Fireplaces, Fire Logs, and Fire Pits
  5. Tankless Water Heaters that Provide Less than Five GPM
  6. All Portable Space Heaters
  7. Outdoor Cooking Areas

How Can I Take Advantage of the TECO Rebate Program?

The easiest way to ensure that you benefit from the is to look at what is required or choose installations that are not on the restricted list and then have a contractor that is registered do the work for you. However, this is often one of the more costly options since you do have to pay for labor, parts, and more.

If you choose to do the work for yourself, you will need to fill out your own TECO Peoples Gas rebate form. Some information you will need to provide includes:

  • Your Account Information
  • Information Regarding Who Installed the Equipment
  • Who Money Was Paid To
  • HVAC System Information (if you want TECO HVAC rebates)
  • Incentive Summary Information
  • Documentation You Have (Proof of Purchase, Invoice of Labor Costs, ETC.)

Other home improvement projects will require other information and other types of forms for you to fill out. For instance, if you install your own ceiling insulation, you will need to provide: your account information, whether you have an insulation certificate, and your documentation.

What to Do if You Cannot Claim TECO Gas Rebates Yourself?

Getting rebates for yourself is never easy. Often, companies will make it harder so that you don't take advantage of them. If you feel that you are entitled to a TECO water heater rebate, you may have to prove it by seeking an inspection or having Tampa Energy look at your information.

The downside is fighting to get a rebate without the proper proof that you deserve it can become an endless battle. Perhaps one that will last well beyond the timeframe that makes it possible for you to collect the rebate.
