Go Green and Save Money - Replace Your Heating and Air Conditioning System Today!
Most of us don't really think much about our Heating and Air-Conditioning units until we are experiencing a cold wet winter or hot humid summer. However with our extreme temperature changes we feel here in North Texas, the available Tax Credit/Utility Company Rebates and the potential 50% savings on our utility bills now is the time to take a very close look at your Heating and Air-Conditioning System before it's too late. Don't wait until 2 AM in the morning during one of our extreme winter or summer nights to make a reactive decision to consider these Family comfort and budget saving opportunities.
Tax Incentives and Utility Company Rebates Available for Heating and Air-Conditioner Replacement
There are substantial tax credits as well as utility company rebates available to those who choose to go green and replace their Heating and Air-Conditioning systems with new, comfort control, non-ozone damaging, energy-efficient models. The Federal Stimulus Bill (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009) offers a new tax credit for 30% of the installation costs (up to $500) to homeowners who install qualified central Heating and Air-Conditioning Systems January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2011.
The stimulus bill also removed the $500 lifetime cap from similar tax credits that were available in 2006 and 2007. Homeowners that claimed tax credits in those years may still be eligible for the full $1500 tax credit for 2009-2011. In addition, local power companies may offer additional rebates of up to $500 for installation of high-efficiency systems.
A more energy-efficient air conditioning replacement unit uses far less energy and can reduce your energy costs by up to 40%. Combined with the new tax incentives and rebates being offered, it can quickly pay for itself.
Environmental Regulations on Air Conditioning Units Change Next Year
Replacement of your older Heating and Air-Conditioning system with a new one provides big financial incentives, increased air quality incentives, Family comfort incentives and there is also an environmental benefit as well.
New environmental requirements will go into effect in 2010 that will regulate the chemicals used in air conditioning units. The R-22 coolant used in most central air conditioning systems manufactured in the past is a HCFC (hydrochloroflurocarbon) that causes chlorine emissions and chlorine gas is one of the man made emissions which damage the ozone. This coolant has been replaced by R410A a new chlorine-free and non-ozone damaging coolant that will ship in new Heating and Air-Conditioners systems sold starting in 2010.
Production of units using ozone-damaging R22 will continue until 2020 but will be substantially reduced as all air conditioning manufacturers switch to using R410A.
New Heating and Air-Conditioning systems today are far more energy efficient than the older units, saving homeowners significant amounts of money of their utility bills on a monthly basis, particularly in our extreme cold winter and hot summer months.
By scheduling for your central Heating and Air-Conditioning system to be examined now, you could take advantage of the available Tax Credit/Utility Company Rebates, the potential 50% savings on our utility bills, the improved air quality, the increase in Family home comfort and the reduction in your carbon footprint. It's true that replacing your central Heating and Air- Conditioning system can be an expensive proposition, but it's also an investment in restoring the ozone layer, which protects us from solar UV radiation, and an investment in making the air we breathe cleaner and safer from poisonous gases like chlorine. It's also a financially sound decision. Efficient Heating and Air-Conditioning systems use far less energy and can quickly pay for itself, especially when you take into account all of the tax incentives and rebates currently being offered.
Best of all, a new and energy-efficient system will make in-home comfort easier and cheaper to establish and maintain all winter and summer long. Consider taking the cost-effective and environmentally responsible step of upgrading to a new Heating and Air-Conditioning system today.
