There has never been a better time to switch your home over to a high efficiency air conditioning unit. The new models could cut your electric bill in half and right now you can collect almost $2,000 in rebates and tax credits.
No doubt you have already felt the effects of soaring utility costs this summer as you try to keep your central Florida home cool. There are few states in the country like Florida where the air conditioner gets a constant workout.
Replacing your unit now is recommended because no one knows if the rebates and tax credits will still be available next spring. We have already seen the federal government reduce the amount of the tax credit offered for switching to more energy-efficient equipment. And given the budget crisis in Washington, it would be no surprise at all if it was eliminated. The tax credit available right now for installing a high-efficiency air conditioner is $300, which comes right off your tax bill.
In addition to the federal tax credits, some utility companies and manufacturers like Lennox are offering substantial rebates on the purchase of high efficiency air conditioners. Lennox will pay you back $1,100 if you purchase a qualifying home comfort system. Additional savings can also be obtained if you install solar panels to help power your air conditioning unit during Florida’s long cooling season.
