How to Get AC Savings Through a New Unit in Your Home

AC SavingsThere’s more than one way to realize AC savings if you’re in the market for a new air-conditioning system for your home. Purchasing a new AC is a significant buying decision—one that most people probably have to make only a few times in life. For that reason, many homeowners aren’t familiar with the options that may provide meaningful AC savings nor where to look for these deals. Here are some of the potential options that may be available to score a lower price or rebate on these major purchases to start you on your way to achieving AC savings.

  • Rebates and tax credits. From the public sector, the federal government’s Energy Star offers — as well as state and local utility programs — may offer savings on air-conditioner or furnace purchases. Rebates that put money back in your pocket or credits that can lower your annual tax bill are often available for new HVAC purchases, including air conditioners. Availability and terms of these programs may vary widely. In some cases it may be possible to qualify for more than one rebate or credit on the same unit.
  • Manufacturer incentives. These offers from the major brand names of HVAC systems come and go. However, if your timing is good, you may be able to realize significant savings in the form of a rebate. One caveat applies, however: Manufacturers tend to limit rebate offers to high-efficiency models versus the low-cost, down-market units. However, a high-efficiency air conditioner delivers lower monthly operating costs due to less energy consumption — another rebate, of sorts, that pays off year after year for the life of the unit.
  • Timing matters. The dog days of summer are usually not the most favorable time of year to shop for bargains on air conditioners. Instead, most of the money-saving offers tend to appear in the transitional fall or spring seasons, when AC sales tend to dip and manufacturers and dealers offer extra incentives to stimulate buyer interest.
