Want to celebrate by doing something impactful to decrease your home’s energy use and carbon emissions while saving money in the process? Pledge to make your next air conditioner a heat pump.
Many homeowners are already aware of the benefits of installing more efficient LED light bulbs, or of a programmable thermostat that adjusts the air-conditioning (AC) or heating when nobody is home. With the recent passage of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), and the rebates and tax incentives included in it, more and more homeowners should consider replacing their AC with a heat pump, especially when their AC is at the end of its useful life.
