As Spring and Summer approach Albuquerque and Rio Rancho, you may realize that the air conditioning in your house is either in need of replacement or repair. Your initial thoughts may be “Great, another expense I can’t afford”. But, did you know that the utility companies offer huge rebates for installing energy efficient equipment? Surprisingly, a lot of people are unaware that these rebates exist, and some may even think that it seems counterintuitive. Affordable Service helps break down how to take advantage of these rebates and why they’re offered in the first place.
In Albuquerque and Rio Rancho, renewable energy is a high priority. Utilities and government agencies have reserved tax dollars for reducing energy usage. There are two reasons for this; one is limited energy is high in demand and the other reason is capital. It is more cost-efficient to offer incentives on energy-saving products than it is having to build newer and larger energy-producing facilities.
Again, we understand that the cost of an unexpected repair or an older, inefficient energy unit needing to be replaced can be a cause for stress. But, when you consider the rebates available to you and add in the potential year over year savings, you can save money on a new HVAC system! PNM offers rebates on swamp coolers (large or window mounted), large refrigerated air conditioning units, heat pumps, and smart thermostats.
PNM has a cooling rebate program that offers residents of Albuquerque and the surrounding area a reduced cost to purchase and install certain energy efficient units in their home. They’ve even made it convenient for you by being able to file your claim online. This year you can also take advantage of a rebate up to $300 for certain evaporative coolers. They also have air conditioner and heat pump rebates. The installation of your new cooler must be done by a PNM certified installer, such as Affordable Service! Call us today at 891-8907. We service Rio Rancho and Albuquerque.
Purchasing a new air conditioner unit for your home is a major decision that you may have to deal with at some point in your lifetime. If you’ve had problems with your refrigerated air levels or additional problems, it may be time to invest in a new one.
When buying a new air conditioner, you may wonder, “When is the best time to shop for one?” You may be surprised to know that the most affordable time for purchasing one may be in the fall or winter. You may not like to hear this because Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner. Spending more money in the fall may not be in your budget, and you say to yourself, “I can just wait until spring!”
To help with your decision, consider some reasons why fall may be the best time to do so. In the fall, refrigerated air isn’t needed as much, so you won’t need to rush. You can take your time shopping for the best air conditioner with the best value at Affordable service. In the off-season, companies may offer price reductions on their products. Affordable Service may have extra air conditioners available that are left over from the summer and will offer you a significant discount. In the summer, the demand is higher when everyone else is purchasing one; therefore, the cost may be higher.
