The HERO Program encourages investment in environmentally-friendly home energy upgrades.”
Pasadena, Ca (PRWEB) March 27, 2014
A new clean energy financing program is taking southern California by storm, as individual city councils throughout Los Angeles County pass resolutions approving the HERO Program for use in their communities. With support from residents and registered HERO contractors like General Heating & Air Conditioning, HERO could soon be available in every city in the San Gabriel Valley.
The HERO Program is designed to encourage investment in environmentally-friendly home energy upgrades. Homeowners can choose from over 150,000 eligible energy efficient products, and if they meet the program’s qualifications, they can receive HERO financing to pay for their project. HERO loans offer competitive interest rates and will be repaid through homeowners’ property tax bills. The program offers tax benefits as well. Homeowners can still take any tax breaks they may be entitled to for the specific project they have done, as well as deduct the interest on their HERO financing.
Representatives of General Heating & Air Conditioning say it was natural for them to support the HERO Program, since their company already encourages homeowners to invest in ENERGY STAR heating & cooling equipment in order to save money on their utility bills and benefit the environment at the same time.
Being a licensed contractor already, it was easy for General Heating & Air Conditioning to secure approval as a registered HERO contractor. Now, this venerable San Gabriel Valley HVAC contractor is able to assist homeowners with HERO-financed projects involving the following technologies:
- Air-Source Heat Pumps
- Central AC Units
- Whole House Fans
- Ventilating Fans
- Thermostat-Controlled Attic Fans
- Duct Replacement, Sealing, or Insulation
- Programmable Thermostat Controls
These technologies represent ways for homeowners to reap serious savings and reduce energy consumption with a relatively small investment, especially compared to the cost of more dramatic projects such as conversion to solar power, which has been the primary media focus in relation to HERO.
All of the products carried by General Heating & Air Conditioning come from Carrier, a trusted HVAC brand with a long history of superior performance and efficiency. But representatives from General Heating & Air Conditioning caution homeowners that choosing quality equipment is not enough—quality installation and maintenance from an expert contractor is also vital in order to reap the full promised benefits of an energy-efficient upgrade.
Homeowners who are unsure what types of upgrades they may be eligible for and what kinds of energy savings could accrue from such upgrades should contact a registered HERO contractor for advice. General Heating & Air Conditioning can provide services such as home performance testing to identify areas for improvement as well as expert advice regarding the benefits of the HERO-eligible products they carry.
