Save Your Air and Save Money with Barlow Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning Published on April 06, 2017 If you invested in qualifying energy-efficient home improvements before December 31, 2016, you may receive a tax credit of up to $500 when you file your 2016 taxes. This credit, part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, is no longer available for purchases made this year, but don’t get too discouraged yet: many rebates and incentives are still being provided by local utility and energy providers on energy-efficient upgrades including heating and cooling systems, insulation, and water heaters. “Electric and gas providers are proceeding with their efforts to help homeowners conserve energy and save money by giving valuable rebates and incentives, even though the federal tax credit has expired,” said Dave Moody, Vice President of Marketing for Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. Did you know that upgrading your heating and air conditioning system to a newer, more efficient system can save up to 50% on energy bills? Did you also know that the right level of attic insulation can save up to 20% on heating and cooling bills? Not only does this directly influence your wallet, it also provides a huge environmental benefit. Speaking of the environment, research shows that if one in 10 households upgraded to ENERGY STAR®-rated heating and cooling equipment, it would prevent 13 billion pounds of yearly greenhouse gas emissions. Now that really helps #ServetheEarth and #SaveYourAir! To help our customers take advantage of these benefits and the rebates, Barlow Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is offering discounts through June 9th on home comfort systems!
