The early bird gets the…rebate? It pays to replace cooling equipment early

April 11, 2018

We know you’re barely thawed out from all those nor’easters this past winter, but have you thought about your home’s cooling equipment lately? If you’re like most people you probably haven’t, because your equipment is still hibernating. But it’s time to put it back on your radar, especially if your cooling system is 12 years or older.


As your cooling equipment ages, it becomes more inefficient, working harder and wasting energy in an effort to keep you cool. That means high utility bills. If you do nothing, eventually, your system will break down, leaving you with a big repair bill, and if it’s a particularly hot and humid summer day, an even bigger headache.


You can prolong your equipment’s lifespan with routine maintenance like replacing the air filters, cleaning the evaporator coil, removing debris from the condenser, and having a professional inspect and maintain your system every year or two. Without that routine maintenance, your cooling equipment ages even faster. According to estimates from the Department of Energy, a central air conditioner can last 15-20 years, and a central heat pump can last 12-15 years.


If you’re looking to avoid a sticky situation, consider early replacement. Replacing an inefficient but still working Central AC or Central Heat Pump system with high efficiency cooling equipment qualifies you for generous rebates from the sponsors of Mass Save®to the tune of up to $1,000.


Beat the heat by a good few months, and check out our early replacement offer to set yourself up for a cool summer of savings.  To qualify, you must have your equipment verified for eligibility by either contacting an Airflow and Charge Check (AC Check) Trained Contractor or by scheduling a no-cost home energy assessment.
