The Cash for Clunkers program just ended, but may get a chance to take advantage of another round of rebates this fall--this time by replacing your old appliances.
Part of the stimulus package Congress approved earlier this year included $300 million for the Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate program.
By buying a new energy efficient appliance you could get a rebate worth between $50 to $200. Here's a list of the appliance categories that will qualify:
· central air conditioners
· heat pumps (air source and geothermal)
· furnaces (oil and gas)
· room air conditioners
· clothes washers
• water heaters.
The program is expected to take effect sometime in November.
