Heating, Ventilation, & Air Conditioning

HVAC Incentives

Capitalize on utility incentives to retrofit or upgrade your HVAC system. Upgrades can include options such as smart controls for roof top units (RTUs) or heat pumps that improve comfort, lower energy usage and maintenance costs. By combining different measures in one project, incentive multipliers increase.


Why invest in HVAC?

Improve energy efficiency

Upgrades decrease energy usage and peak demand. For instance, a Dept. of Energy study showed rooftop controls cut energy use by 57% on average.

Reduce maintenance

Upgrading or retrofitting older, maintenance-heavy HVAC equipment boosts performance, reliability, and lowers costs.

Improve employee satisfaction

HVAC equipment and retrofits improve the cooling and heating efficiency of your space to make a more comfortable environment.

Lower environmental impact

Newer HVAC equipment and retrofits contribute to lowered greenhouse gas emissions and reduced use of toxic refrigerants.

Equipment Upgrade

Older HVAC equipment has costly preventative maintenance contracts, experiences frequent unplanned service, and provides inconsistent comfort. Investing in new equipment can lead to decreased operating costs, reduced energy usage, and improved conditioning.

Controls Upgrade

For equipment that is still in good condition, thermostat controls, RTU upgrades, occupancy controls, and the addition of economizers improves energy efficiency and leads to lower utility costs. Precise and automated temperature, humidity, and air quality management enhances system performance and comfort.

Building Automation

These technologically advanced systems allow you to automatically "Listen to Your Building™" and its needs via continuous monitoring, facilitating the identification and implementation of control strategies tailored to usage, occupancy, and function. This optimizes efficiency and maintains comfort levels.

Energy Efficiency Programs

There are a variety of utility programs in place to support your business or organization whether small or large. Artis conducts a no-cost, no-risk assessment before working collaboratively with you to develop and install the project.

Small Businesses

Through the Small Business Energy Assessment (SBEA) Program, eligible small and medium-sized organizations can receive a comprehensive energy assessment of their facilities at no cost to identify potential energy-saving opportunities and recommended measures. These measures can include lighting upgrades, HVAC system improvements, insulation, and other energy-efficient technologies. 0% on utility bill financing is available for qualifying customers.

Large Businesses

The Energy Opportunities program is an affordable way for large businesses to upgrade to energy efficient equipment. Our energy experts help our customers maximize cost savings by developing projects that combine multiple measures to qualify for higher incentives. We replace or retrofit inefficient operating equipment such as lighting, HVAC, chillers, motors, compressors, and controls.


Through the Multifamily Initiative, property owners can identify energy-saving opportunities and implement measures such as lighting upgrades, insulation, HVAC system improvements, and more. The program provides financial incentives, rebates, and financing options to help offset the upfront costs associated with these energy efficiency upgrades. Income-eligible properties may qualify for higher incentives.

Affordable Financing

Each program has unique financing options for businesses that want to upgrade their equipment. Based on eligibility, small businesses may receive 0% on-bill financing on energy efficiency projects. For larger businesses, your utility company partners with banks to provide low-interest financing on the remaining balance net incentives.

We look deeper than just

Our philosophy involves taking a comprehensive approach to assist you, not only with lighting but also in assessing other building systems to enhance comfort and reduce costs. By combining multiple upgrades, we are able to earn you higher incentives to improve payback to help you greenlight your project.

We assess specific lighting needs and requirements of a space and provide tailored lighting solutions that maximize energy efficiency while ensuring optimal lighting quality and performance.

Enhance your current refrigeration and retail cases by installing more efficient LED lighting and high-performance motors. These upgrades not only help you save money but will better showcase your merchandise.

Evaluate your building for insulation and weatherization opportunities to maintain better comfort and lower your energy expenses.

Automate control of your building processes to monitor and adjust energy usage during peak demand periods.

We offer fixed distribution rates through third-party providers, which can assist you in managing your distribution electricity expenses and reduce volatility in projecting your energy expenses.
