Illinois energy efficiency incentives are available to help you keep your home's air conditioner running efficiently
Last month we talked about the impact of your air conditioning tune up (Part I), this month we will focus on the local impact of energy savings.
Two years ago, the State of Illinois commissioned the Smart Ideas program to help Illinois become one of the “greenest” states.
Smart Ideas is a cooperative program between the state of Illinois, Comed and local heating & cooling contractors, to improve the value Chicago homeowner receive from their electric energy dollars.
What does this mean for me?
Last week we talked about saving over $32 per month on your energy bills by having your air conditioning tune up. The Smart Ideas program is a champion of this idea. By educating homeowners on the importance of testing, cleaning & repairing a home's air conditioning systems – the Smart Ideas program, saves money, and just as important, reduces the energy use demands from Illinois residence.
How does it work?
The program is easy. Just contact a participating Smart Ideas contractor to tune up your air conditioning system. The participating dealer will arrive at your home with a special tool to measure the performance of you air conditioning system. After measuring your systems performance, they will perform a tune up on your air conditioning system. Finally, the heating & cooling expert will re-measure your ac systems performance to determine your annual electrical savings.
