Rebates and Tax Credits for Air Conditioning and Heating Systems
One of the easiest ways to earn a little money if you are doing HVAC replacement is through rebates. Most local utilities offer excellent rebate programs that many homeowners fail to take advantage of. Generally rebates are structured around the replacement of your old air conditioning system or heat pump. Utilities reward you for improvements in energy efficiency by offering rebates as high as $200.
