MidAmerican Energy Residential Equipment Rebate Program offers rebates to its residential home-owning customers for the purchase of energy-efficient heating and cooling appliances. Rebates range from $50-$600 for natural gas furnaces, natural gas boilers, air conditioners, natural gas water heaters, and air-source or geothermal heat pumps. A printable version of the rebate application is located on the program website.

MidAmerican Energy also offers a free home energy check for customers who live in (and own) a home built prior to Dec. 31, 1994, and the primary heating energy is supplied directly by MidAmerican. The HomeCheck program can help customers identify areas in their homes where they can make the most significant energy efficiency improvements. During the assessment, an energy specialist will check the home's insulation levels, the efficiency of the heating, cooling and water heating equipment and the condition of the home's windows. There are a number of improvements the specialist can make during the inspection including the addition of a water heater insulation blanket, six feet of water pipe insulation, water controls, a water bed mattress pad, and up to six energy-efficient light bulbs. Customers can call 800-894-9599 to request a HomeCheck.
