Still Time to Save Money This Year

It’s an expensive time of year. There are holiday parties, dinners to host and gifts to buy. That’s why residents with an Arizona AC and heating system are looking for any place to save a few dollars.

Tax Credits and Rebates

Take advantage of tax incentives that will expire after December 31, 2011. The federal government is offering 10 percent of the installation cost (up to $500) of a new, energy-efficient Arizona AC and heating system, in the form of a credit on their 2011 taxes. A list of qualifying systems is available on the website of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ( The unit must be installed before the end of the year.

Arizona power and electric companies are also offering attractive financial incentives. These incentives are on top of what you could receive in tax credits! APS customers may qualify for a rebate of up to $525 for installing an energy-efficient Arizona AC and heating system. SRP customers may qualify for a $400 for replacing their air conditioner or heat pump with a qualifying high-efficiency system.

‘Tis the Season for Great Deals

When homeowners think of the prime time to get a smokin’ deal on a new Arizona AC and heating system, they don’t usually think winter. But surprisingly, many great incentives are available if you replace your system now – before the busy summer rush.

Chas Roberts Air Conditioning and Heating has a great year-end offer for homeowners in need of a new Arizona AC and heating system. They are offering a free, no obligation consultation with a Chas Roberts technician who can help assess your heating and cooling needs. And, if you purchase any qualifying Carrier® gas split system, the furnace is free. This offer provides a total savings of up to $750, but it’s only good until December 31, 2011, and it’s not valid with any other Chas Roberts’ discount.
