Utilize Rebates and Credits for your next Air Conditioner Replacement05/13/2015 As a homeowner you’re faced with a long list of things to get done, one which can be air conditioner replacement. Sure, there’s a ton to get done around the house, so when it’s time to take on one of the more daunting tasks, be sure you’ve done your research so you can reduce the impact it has on your wallet. Because you live in the Main Line, you might qualify for utility rebates and other local incentive programs when you buy a high-efficiency air conditioner from Lennox®. These rebates are designed for your specific location, so rebates will vary, but chances are, there are savings to be had if you ensure you take the time to do a small amount of research. Savvy homeowners looking for air conditioner replacement can save hundreds, and even thousands, of dollars when getting an energy efficient air conditioner this summer. Between the federal credits and those available in the Main Line, you can boost your comfort while saving money. Something to keep in mind as you’re doing your research is that local incentives can change pretty fast and without notice, so use them when they are available so you can save as much as possible. If you choose to go the solar route, you may be eligible for even greater rebates as well. Purchasing a solar air conditioner like the SunSource® Home Energy System means you’re eligible for the federal renewable-energy tax credit through 2016. That’s just the tip of the iceberg for solar perks too, so be sure to keep that route open as you shop around for the ideal option. Considering air conditioner replacement doesn’t just mean you’re getting a new system, but you’re also gaining the benefits of better technology. The life of the average air conditioner is around 10-15 years, and the advancements made in energy efficiency alone can make the investment cost-effective. You’ll reap the benefits year-round too, with better comfort and lower energy costs month after month. If you want to know more about the various savings available to you in the Main Line, give the experts at O'Brien Heating & Air Conditioning a call or check with your local utility company to make certain you’re getting the most savings possible.
