If you are living in Arizona area then you must try to know about various Government incentives offered to people for using air conditioners.
As we all know that buying a new air conditioner can always put strain on your budget and therefore there are offers of APS rebates and many other rebates by the government which is a welcome benefit.
Some of the incentives offered by the Government are as follows:
- Tax credit 25C
Under this credit, taxpayers were given certain rebates during 2011 to 2013 which has been further extended. Under this scheme an individual was eligible to obtain almost $300 as refund.
- Phoenix AC rebates
Both electric companies like APS and SRP will offer rebates if you qualify air conditioning upgrades as a home or business owners. Any of their newer systems will use almost 40% lesser energy as compared to older systems.
So, most electric companies will prefer that you upgrade your model, and then they will offer lots of rebates to make the cost of new system more affordable.

For higher ratings of SEER, there is SRP rebate program. You need to be a permanent customer of SRP in Arizona as single family.

Also, you have to be permanent APS customer in order to qualify.
