Just like in 2023, Able’s online webshop will have a complete chart of eligible systems and the rebate for which they qualify—just type ‘rebates’ in the search bar or click the following link:
We are also updating our solutions page with rebate-ready prebuilt equipment packages. These are essentially turnkey systems designed by Able—guaranteed compatibility, guaranteed rebate, added to your cart with a single click. All qualifying systems will display the rebate value as part of a quote or in your Able cart.
Distributor training is only half of the requirements for 2024 rebate eligibility. Contractors will also have to complete a four-hour webinar training session via ComEd and finish the quiz after each module. The following modules are mandatory:
1. Air Source Heat Pump Applications
2. Replacing Air Conditioners with ASHPs
3. Heat Pump Control Strategies and Best Practices
4. Designing Air Source Heat Pumps with Sizing and Selection in Mind
If you have any questions about the rebate training or your schedule doesn’t allow you to attend one our our pre-scheduled sessions, please reach out to your branch. They will be happy to work with you to make sure that as soon as the calendar turns to 2024, you’re ready for rebates!
