January 2019 Newsletter
Yes, it's the New Year now and we have to get back to practical considerations.
Whether you've been anticipating/planning for some upgrades or improvements in your investment property or you know you need to (as in that aging HVAC system that could go at any moment or that 17 year old refrigerator), do not overlook the discounts your utility may offer on certain improvements. We'll use JEA as a reference here.
- Lighting Rebates: on Energy Star LED bulbs, with specific participating retailers.
- HVAC Rebates: On purchases of new systems (your home's central heating, ventilation and air conditioning system (HVAC) is responsible for nearly 50 percent of the energy consumed in your home according to ENERGYSTAR®.) Currently offered for 16 seer.
- Insulation: For blown-in loose fill fiber glass or cellulose insulation. The rebate amount is $0.20 per square foot up to a maximum rebate amount of $150.
- Solar Water Heating: JEA SolarSmart is the program created for conversion from electric to solar (we'd only suggest considering this at time the heater needs to be replaced.
Most of these rebates are predicated on using JEA participating vendors, many of whom are our service and supply providers.
Additionally, your insurer may offer reduced rates for some of these improvements.
