HVAC Tune-Up Rebate
When was the last time you had your home’s HVAC system tuned up? If it has been a few years, this is a good time to have an HVAC contractor inspect, service and clean it.
Typically, tune-ups on cooling systems that have been neglected for a few years can provide as much as 15 percent energy savings. Just as a tune-up for your car can improve gas mileage, a yearly tune-up of your cooling system can improve efficiency and comfort. Plus, an annual tune-up can increase the life of the system.
Beginning April 1, 2017, Cotton Electric is offering a rebate of up to $50 per home (50 percent of the cost of your tune-up, excluding repairs, up to $50) for members who get a tune-up for their HVAC system. In order to qualify, the following guidelines must be met:
1. Must be a Cotton Electric Cooperative member. Residence must be served by Cotton Electric.
2. Rebate is not available for homes newer than one year.
3. A completed Rebate Application is required. Download form HERE.
4. Application must be signed and dated by both the member and a licensed and bonded HVAC contractor.
5. Member must submit a dated, itemized invoice as proof of service completion from a qualified contractor. Failure to provide required information will result in denial of rebate.
6. Rebates are awarded on a first‐come, first-served basis until program funds have been depleted.
7. Rebate not valid on gas-fired furnaces.
8. Rebate limited to one tune-up per home annually.
9. HVAC tune-ups must be completed by June 20, 2017. Rebate applications must be received by June 30, 2017.
