Air Conditioner Rebates
Current Air Conditioner Rebates For 2015
Ontario’s ENERGY STAR Program is offering rebates to encourage you as a homeowner to install and use energy efficient cooling or air conditioning systems. Here’s how it works.
You will need a participating ENERGY STAR installer, (which we happen to qualify as) who will ensure you are eligible for:
- A $250 Purchase Incentive when installing a 14.5 SEER and 12 EER (Or Better) ENERGY STAR Air-Conditioner
- A $400 Purchase Incentive when you replace an existing central air conditioning system with a tier 2-or better unit (15 SEER or better).
The Program Has Expired (Ended Jan 2012)
The Government has pulled the plug on the eco-energy audit and removed the incentive program aimed at homeowners interested in improving the efficiency of their homes. There was an incredible amount of work and resources put into this program, I wont be surprised to see it re-emerge in some form or another.
The Ontario Government is offering air conditioner rebates to home owners that switch out their current cooling system for a new more efficient unit. The air conditioner rebates value will change according to the new system you install but you can expect to save on energy costs on top of the offered incentives.
You can expect a Government rebate of $250 on any air conditioner with a SEER rating of 14.5 or better. You will need to get a home energy audit on your home (find out more and get one here) which is a government sponsored program that enables home owners to discover how efficient their home is and where improvements can be made. Once this program or audit has been completed you will be mailed a cheque with the value of the rebates that you should receive pertaining to your upgrades.
Provincial air conditioner rebates are available to all of the greater Toronto area and all cities within Ontario. Any Air Conditioner with a SEER rating of 14.5 or higher will qualify you for a rebate of $250.
