Air Conditioning by Jay Makes APS Rebates Easy

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - July 31, 2009) - Air Conditioning by Jay leads the pack of Phoenix air conditioning contractors that process more Arizona Public Service (APS) rebates than any other contractor in Arizona. Air Conditioning by Jay customers received thousands of dollars back for purchasing high efficiency air conditioning and heating systems.

The APS Residential Air Conditioner Rebate program offers rebates to residential customers replacing their existing AC unit or heat pump with a high efficiency system. To qualify for the APS rebate, all equipment must be installed by an APS qualified contractor such as Air Conditioning by Jay. Work must meet the Quality Installation standards of APS.

In 2009, Air Conditioning by Jay has already processed 71 rebates with a total payout of $33,500 to their customers. In the past four weeks, an additional $130,000 in APS rebates were approved. Rebates are for duct testing and sealing and renewable geothermal applications.

APS issues a rebate of up to 50 percent of all geothermal related equipment and installation. The tax credits offered on geothermal related equipment and installation are up to 30 percent. Savings continue because energy bills are significantly reduced. New electric AC unit(s) and heat pumps are up to 50 percent more efficient than units installed over a decade ago.

APS Quality Installation standards include proper sizing calculation and airflow and refrigeration charge checks. Many air conditioning units are over 60 percent oversized, leading to higher maintenance costs. Unfortunately, up to 75 percent of installed cooling equipment does not meet manufacturer specifications for airflow and refrigeration charge. This is the reason for the APS rebate program.

Air Conditioning by Jay makes it simple to take advantage of APS rebates. High efficiency units offer improved temperature and humidity control for greater comfort. Modern equipment is quieter than older units. A high efficiency AC system also improves homes' resale value.

Even the city of Phoenix took advantage of APS rebates totaling $825,000. Mayor Phil Gordon stated, "Our participation in the APS energy savings programs makes sense in so many ways. This not only saves us all money during difficult times, but also helps preserve and sustain our environment. It's all green and it's all good."
