Get cool cash for energy-efficient central air conditioning.
When temperatures soar it's essential to keep your home cool. But maintaining a comfortable home doesn't have to mean soaring electricity bills. An energy-efficient central air conditioner can keep your home comfortable and significantly reduce your electricity bill. Program-qualified central air conditioners are approximately 15 percent more efficient than standard models. If your central air conditioner unit is more than 12 years old, replacing it with an energy-efficient model could cut your cooling costs by up to 30 percent! Using less energy means more money back in your pocket plus, upgrading your cooling unit helps to avoid the emission of greenhouse gases. If you want to install a central air conditioner, or it's time to replace an old unit, consider buying an energy-efficient model.
