Replacing your old air conditioner, heat pump or water heater with an energy-efficient model saves energy and money. Newer, more efficient AC systems use up to 40% less electricity! You can receive a rebate from Austin Energy to install qualified energy-efficient air conditioning and heating equipment. Fox Service Company can help you choose the right HVAC system or water heater for your home and submit rebate applications for you.

If you have an older home that requires more energy efficiency improvements to properly size a new air conditioner, consider Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® rebates.

Austin Energy helps maximize your investment in new air conditioning. 
Explore their Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® program when you need to upgrade your air conditioner, especially to correct:

  • Underperforming air conditioning systems
  • Inefficient ductwork
  • Inadequate attic insulation levels 
  • Air leaks

This whole-home approach to energy upgrades delivers:

  • savings
  • comfort
  • healthier indoor air quality

Plus, Home Performance with ENERGY STAR customers can enjoy an average of $1,800 in rebates and 3.99% interest loans combined with an average savings of 20% off summer energy bills. (exact savings may vary between customers)

If you are not quite ready for this comprehensive approach to energy efficiency, Austin Energy provides rebates averaging about $450 to just install qualified energy-efficient air conditioning equipment. Replacing your old air conditioner with a new high-efficiency HVAC system can save you energy and money when a registered contractor installs the correct size for your home.

If your air conditioning system 10 years or older, a new energy-efficient air conditioning equipment can create a significant difference in your home's comfort.

When you are ready to make the rest of the energy upgrades to optimize the new AC to its peak performance and extend the life of the unit, remember to turn to Home Performance with ENERGY STAR for additional rebates.
