MILWAUKEE — Johnson Controls announced new emergency relief rebates that HVAC contractors can offer eligible homeowners who live in and work in areas affected by Hurricane Ian. Contractors can provide rebates on qualifying YORK, Luxaire, Coleman, Champion, and Fraser-Johnston brand equipment installed between October 1 and December 31, 2022, to those who live and work in Florida, South Carolina, and North Carolina counties within the defined Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Disaster Area (DR-4673-FL, DR-4675, EM-3584-FL, EM-3585-SC and EM-3586-NC).  

“The level of destruction Hurricane Ian has caused is unparalleled, and our thoughts are with everyone touched by this disaster,” said Doug Schuster, vice president and general manager of global ducted systems at Johnson Controls. “Through new emergency relief rebates offered by Johnson Controls, contractors can begin to help homeowners rebuild.”

Contractors can apply for rebates online at using the Personal Use Rebate Program. The program assigns rebates according to equipment efficiency, with more efficient products earning larger rebates.
