Smiling is easy when things cost less. That’s why you’ll have a huge grin on your face when you plant your new shade tree—at half the cost. Right now, we’re giving cash rebates equal to 50% of the price of a new tree, up to $50 per shade tree. So while you enjoy a new favorite spot to read, you’ll also be enjoying extra green above your head and in your wallet. Plus, that well-placed shade tree can help reduce air conditioning costs in the summer, increase the efficiency of your air conditioner, and act as a windbreak. And, when the leaves fall off, allow warm sunlight to enter your home during the winter. For more information on our Tree Power program, download our form.
Many summer energy-saving measures can be done at little or no cost. Here are some additional tips to help you keep your cool:
- Close drapes or shades during the day to block the sun. Open them at night to let the heat escape through the windows.
- Schedule a tune-up of your cooling system. Air conditioners can lose up to 5 percent of their original efficiency every year if they are not serviced. That’s why we offer a $35 cash rebate to get your A/C tuned up by a professional service technician. Learn more about our Central A/C Tune-up rebate.
- Don’t forget to regularly replace air conditioning filters. A dirty filter will slow down air flow and make the system work harder—wasting energy.
