SRP has a great rebate program for high efficiency air conditioners but homeowners need to be aware of SRP’s requirements to qualify for the A/C rebate. Many companies offer “rebates and incentives” but they never comply with the SRP rebate requirements and really just hike their original price up so high, then discount it by applying cash back and incentives and in the end, you still end up paying a higher price for a new A/C system and you miss out of SRP’s quality install requirements. You’ll know you are getting a true SRP rebate when you complete these forms. In this post we will breakdown the SRP air conditioning rebates, SRP rebate requirements and the importance of why SRP puts them in place.
The A/C system is by far the largest energy user in Phoenix homes, often doubling in the summer months so any savings you can get from a high efficient A/C unit will translate into year over year savings for the life of the system. Only SEER 16 and EER 12.0 or higher units qualify under SRPs rebate requirements. There are additional requirements that SRP puts in place to ensure a quality install and for good reason.
SRP Cool Cash Air Conditioner Rebates
SRP has a generous rebate amount for high efficiency air conditioners both for split systems and package units in the table below.
All the requirements must be met for the SRP A/C rebates to apply. Typically SEER is given more attention that EER or HSPF ratings. However, SRP requires the EER for good reason. In hot, dry climates like Phoenix, EER is more important than the SEER rating.
EER Is More Important Than SEER
I like the way SRP has structured their A/C rebates because they put requirements in place that award rebates not only for a high efficiency A/C system, but also to make sure a proper installation takes place. Here is a list of the SRP rebate requirements and explanations.
What Happens If One Of The SRP Requirements Are Not Met?
If for example, the new high efficiency A/C meets all SRP’s efficiency requirements but after installation your contractor finds the airflow or charge is out of specifications and will not meet the SRP rebate requirements, you have two options. The first option is to have the A/C contractor fix the deficiencies to meet SRP rebate requirements. Depending on how much additional work is required, this may be done at no cost or at an additional charge. Now let’s say the airflow is out of SRP’s specifications because the ductwork is sized wrong and fix the problem will cost an additional $300 that you do not want to pay. Under this scenario, the unit would no longer qualify for the SRP rebate.
Are There High Efficiency Package System Heat Pumps?
Just because Trane, Carrier or Lennox do not have a high efficient package system doesn’t mean that they don’t exist. SEER 19 variable speed compressors do exist for package heat pumps. Contact Green ID for a free consultation of our high efficiency A/C systems.
Other SRP Rebates
SRP not only has rebates for high efficiency air conditioners, they provide rebates for sealing ductwork, adding insulation, shade screens, smart thermostats and air sealing. See the table below for details.
Using the SRP air conditioner rebates are a great way to lower the cost of a high efficiency A/C system while ensuring a quality install.
