Financing for the Sun: Our HERO Program

Discover a Brighter (and More Affordable) Way to Go Green

At some point, you might ask yourself, “Is going solar the right energy solution for me?” Homeowners that forego solar energy typically do so for two reasons: the fear of change, and budget restrictions.

In addition to offering air conditioning service in San Diego, CA, Mauzy Heating, Air & Solar specializes in solar panel installation. If cost is keeping you from going solar, we can help you power past that hurdle, too. Our team can guide you through the entire process of solar financing, making the “green” solution that’s right for you also a budget-friendly option. We are proud to participate in the San Diego HERO financing program so that we can help you make the transition to solar—on terms you can feel good about.

Going Solar

Going solar means opting to live a more energy-efficient and eco-friendly lifestyle. From being more conscientious with your energy usage to reducing your reliance on nonrenewable resources, solar energy systems allow you to reduce your effect on the environment. Although solar energy requires a significant upfront investment, you’ll enjoy a significant return on that investment over time.

To help you manage the initial expense, Mauzy Heating, Air & Solar can connect you with the HERO program.

Become a HERO for Your Home

The HERO program is an affordable and flexible program that is designed to make solar energy a more feasible option. This program spreads the cost of a solar energy system over a 15- to-20-year span.

With this financing, you can break the full cost into lower monthly payments. Even more, the long-term refinancing helps you avoid affecting your debt-to-income ratio more than a short-term plan would.

According to, you may be eligible for this program if you meet the following conditions:

– Poor credit score
– Limited or no credit
– Outstanding monthly debts that prevent you from obtaining new financing (i.e. car loans, student loans, etc.)
– You have good credit, and want to continue bettering your score.

The Big Break: Property Tax Benefits

Depending on the product that you choose, your HVAC system and solar system can be financed for 15- to-20-year terms. These financing agreements are then

rolled into your property tax payment. What does this mean for you? Your entire monthly payment for both the principal and interest are available as a tax write-off because it’s part of your annual property taxes. This will reduce your tax burden and can even cover the cost difference of an upgrade. Best of all, the HERO program allows you to write off the entire cost of the solar installation (and not just the interest).

Upgrade & Save

By upgrading to a new system, you will reduce your energy costs, minimize your carbon footprint, and most importantly, save money. Enjoy all the benefits of a new, high-efficiency air conditioning unit—without the upfront financial burden.

Financing Without Personal Credit

Too many consumer loans or private home improvement loans can hurt your credit. With the HERO program, you can finance your solar upgrade as part of your property tax payment. This way, your personal credit won’t be affected.

Affordable & Transferrable

The HERO program offers affordable terms for all budgets. Even more, the cost of your solar investment stays with the property, not you. This way, if you ever leave the area or buy a different home, you won’t be stuck paying for solar panels that you don’t need.
