Repairing a RTU

We provide free HVAC consulting and rebates covering up to 60% of project costs for Minnesota businesses. 

From no- or low-cost improvements to rooftop unit (RTU) replacements, our team will help you find energy-saving HVAC solutions tailored to your building and budget. As a nonprofit focused on energy efficiency, our top priority is helping small to medium-sized businesses save money and energy, not selling HVAC equipment.

Project support from start to finish.

To understand the unique needs of your building, we start by evaluating your HVAC system, including your RTU. We follow up by proving all the information you need to make the smartest choice for your business, including no- or low-cost fixes and recommended upgrades with estimated savings, rebates, and payback periods.
