KCP&L Air Conditioning Upgrade Rebate
This rebate is no longer available for KS residents. The Missouri rebate qualification is still available.
OPHC is Your Authorized Service Provider and KCP&L Partner
The Kansas City Power & Light air conditioning upgrade rebate program is a residential central air-conditioning rebate program that helps KCP&L Missouri customers maintain the operating efficiency of central air conditioning systems and offset the cost of upgrading to new high-efficiency systems. KCP&L customers can save energy and reduce cooling costs while staying comfortable all season long.
How the Air Conditioning Upgrade Rebate Program Works
This rebate program is no longer available for KS residents.
KCP&L Missouri customers may have their existing central air cooling system tested by a trained OPHC technician to see if it can be brought back to manufacturers' specifications or replaced with a high-efficiency air conditioner or heat pump.
Rebates are applied, per system, toward the purchase of a high-efficiency air conditioner or heat pump through Overland Park Heating and Cooling. (For example, a large house with three air conditioners may qualify for a rebate on each of the three air conditioners.)
KCP&L customers may qualify for basic maintenance services to help tune-up qualifying equipment, even if they do not purchase a new system. If the cooling system can be brought back to manufacturers' specifications, limited services such as recharging the cooling refrigerant, providing non-ductwork airflow adjustments and basic filter cleaning or replacement may be provided. (Customers may receive a quote for additional costs required to service the equipment)

Air conditioning upgrade rebate is available to any KCP&L Missouri customer receiving a residential electric rate, including single and multi-family homes.
Cool homes is not available to customers that have already purchased a new system.
The instant rebate applies only to residential central air conditioner or heat pump systems at the time of purchase, and only when offered by Overland Park Heating and Cooling.
Window or portable air conditioners do not qualify for rebates or tune-ups.
Only systems with a nameplate or operating EER of 8.0 or less are eligible for replacement. This can only be determined after the OPHC technician completes a test of the cooling system.
Only central air conditioner or heat pump systems in working condition are eligible for the program.
Cool homes is not available to customers whose air conditioner or heat pump has died, malfunctioned, or is not working during the evaluation.
Any inoperative or "dead" air conditioner and heat pump equipment cannot be tested, and therefore cannot be eligible for a rebate.
Rebates and Incentives
Instant rebates of $650 and $850 may be available (at the time of purchase) for customers who replace their inefficient equipment with new equipment rated at 14.0 to 15.9 SEER or 16.0 SEER and above.
No paperwork is required to claim this rebate incentive. KCP&L pays Overland Park Heating and Cooling, so you will receive the savings in the form of a credit on the invoice when purchasing a new high-efficiency system.
Customers purchasing electric heat pumps will qualify for a lower electric rate through KCP&L, eight months of the year (mid-September to mid-May).
A government tax credit may be available for purchasing high-efficiency cooling equipment. Learn more at www.energy.gov/savings ($500 maximum credit)
