New Blower Motor Added To Program

Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) has added a new blower motor to the eligibility list of qualifying blower motors.  The blower motors listed are the only motors that qualify for the Replacement rebate measure. See the full list of approved blower motors here.

Refrigerant System Adjustment: Important Updates
Section 1106.3.1 of the 2010 California Mechanical Code (CMC) requires refrigerant service ports located outdoors and serving residential or non-residential HVAC systems to be fitted with locking-type tamper-resistant caps. When completing the refrigerant charge adjustment, technicians must replace the existing caps with refrigerant locking caps that meet IMC and IRC codes. Starting December 1st, jobs that are QC’d for refrigerant charge that do not have locking caps will be sent back for contractor correction.

*Note that locking caps are required only when the refrigerant charge adjustment is completed; if this measure is not completed, locking caps do not need to be installed.

A Refrigerant System Adjustment may only be performed when weather conditions will support accurate results. This means the work must be done within eight months of completion of the SA Mobile/ACCA 4 Assessment (the delay is to allow proper time for weather conditions to resume). For more information, see the Contractor Handbook.
Assessments: Invoice Requirements
With the recent SA Mobile/ACCA 4 Assessment rebate amount increase from $50 to $100, we would like to remind you that the invoice must still be equal to or greater than the rebate amount. Please note that the entire invoice for all measures completed must also remain greater than the total rebate amount as well.
