Save Money- Do a Little Research

A few minutes of research could end up saving you big money on your next HVAC purchase- a great way to get started is by checking out www.dsireusa.org. This helpful website, called DSIRE, is an acronym for Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency, and it’s funded by the U.S. Department of Energy. It’s clear and easy to use; just select the state you live in on the map shown and you will be sent directly to a comprehensive and current list of financial incentives that you could be eligible for.

If you’re shopping around for a new heating or cooling system, another great way to find out about rebates and CashBack programs is to check out your equipment manufacturer’s website. For instance, Rheem has a rebate center on their website, which helps you easily navigate local and federal tax credit information.

Also- don’t forget to check out the website for your utility company. Most utility companies have incentives and rebate information on pamphlets they send you with your monthly bill, as well as online information. PG&E has a great resource on their website under Renewables & Efficiency, which makes it easy to read up on local home and business energy savings opportunities.

We hope this is helpful! Feel free to call us or email us with any questions; we want to point you in the right direction so you can feel good about your next HVAC purchase!
