Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) April 22, 2010
Earth Day is about motivating individuals to make personal commitments to sustainability. As Earth Day celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, there is no better way to mark this important day by making a difference right at home. And now it's even more affordable to do so with Arizona energy efficiency initiatives.
The federal stimulus bill passed by Congress last year provides homeowners with tax credits for replacing their air conditioning units with more energy-efficient models. But don't wait too long because the tax credit expires at the end of this year. 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 . In addition, APS customers that are committed to Arizona energy efficiency 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.
Tax credits and product rebates are the short-term ways homeowners and businesses save money. Over the long run, a more efficient air conditioning unit can reduce energy costs by up to 40%. Combined with the new tax incentives and Arizona energy rebates being offered, the new unit can quickly pay for itself.
For those who are not sure of the efficiency of an air conditioning unit, Chas Roberts is now offering a free Energy Efficiency Evaluation. The company is dedicated Arizona energy efficiency and will offer this no-cost energy audit through May 15, 2010. A Chas Roberts technician will come to any home to confirm the age and assess the working condition of your units. The technician will check the units for proper sizing and the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating. If it's time to replace the air conditioner, Chas Roberts will recommend the best, most energy-efficient unit for the home and provide information on possible financial incentives available, including Chas Roberts' $1000 Trade Up deal, manufacturer and utility company rebates and the federal tax credit.
When a customer can take advantage of Arizona energy rebates, they are doing good for the environment as well as something positive for their bottom line. Call Chas Roberts today to schedule a no-cost Energy Efficiency Evaluation. Call (602) 328-5058 in the Phoenix area or (520) 292-6858 in Tucson, or visit ChasRoberts.com.
