Go Green and Save Money by replacing your Air Conditioner. Most people don't really think too much about their air conditioning units until summer. But with higher temperatures arriving early this year, now is the time to take a look at your air conditioning unit before it gets too hot, or before your unit breaks. New Tax Incentives Available for Air Conditioner ReplacementThere are new tax credits available to those who choose to go green and replace their air conditioning units with newer, non-ozone damaging, energy-efficient models. The recently passed federal stimulus bill (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009) offers a new tax credit for 30% of the installation costs(up to $1500) to homeowners who install qualified central air conditioning units January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2010. 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 2009-2010. In addition, local power companies like APS, SRP and Tucson Electric Power Company may offer additional rebates of up to $400 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.Contact AirCARE Today About Upgrading Your Air Conditioner With so many compelling reasons to replace that old central air conditioning unit it's obvious that now is the time to upgrade.
