Replacing Your Air Conditioner Now Makes “Cents”

Phoenix, Ariz. (November 01, 2010) – More than $1500 is up for grabs for Arizona homeowners. How can you get your hands on that money, you ask? It’s pretty simple.

Instead of sweating through another hot summer with an old air conditioner, replace it before the end of this year and you can qualify for up to $1500 in tax credits. The federal stimulus bill passed by Congress last year provides Arizona homeowners with tax credits for replacing their air conditioning units with more energy-efficient models.

Arizona homeowners who install qualified central air conditioning units through December 31, 2010 may qualify for a tax credit for 30% of the installation costs, up to $1500. To find out which units qualify and how you can get your fair share of the money, contact a reputable, trustworthy air conditioning replacement and service company like Chas Roberts Air Conditioning & Heating. APS customers may also qualify for an additional rebate of up to $525 and Tucson Electric Power Company customers may qualify for rebates of up to $250 for installation of high-efficiency systems.

Need more incentive? Chas Roberts Air Conditioning & Heating is offering Arizona homeowners a “Cool Deal” in November.

And on top of these amazing Chas Roberts deals, manufacturer rebates are available up to $1250 if you purchase qualifying Trane® units by November 30; Carrier® units by November 15 or Ruud units installed by November 15. Chas Roberts is an authorized dealer for all these brands and can provide you with details on qualifying units.

Tax credits and product rebates are the short-term ways you’ll save money. Over the long run, a more efficient air conditioning unit can reduce your energy costs by up to 40%*. This could add up to significant savings. And who couldn’t use extra money for the holidays or for next summer’s family vacation?

Combine the new tax incentives with the rebates being offered and the money saved on electric bills and the new unit can quickly pay for itself.

Help Yourself and the Environment

In January 2010, new rules went into effect that regulates the chemicals used in air conditioning units, chemicals that damage the ozone layer. Your current unit likely uses the R-22 coolant that causes chlorine emissions. Chlorine gas is one of the manmade emissions which damage the ozone. New units will now use a chlorine-free and non-ozone damaging coolant. The new units will not only be better for the environment but will make the air you breathe at home cleaner and healthier.
