Georgia Power offers $50 HVAC service rebate for residential customers
Fall is the perfect time to service household heating and cooling system, save money and energy year-round

ATLANTA, Sept. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- As the cooler fall weather arrives, Georgia Power reminds residential customers to take advantage of a rebate up to $50 simply for having their heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system serviced by a qualified, licensed and approved HVAC technician. As much as 50 percent of monthly energy use can be attributed to heating and cooling the home and inefficient systems can cost customers hundreds of dollars in additional energy costs every year. Having a home's HVAC system professionally serviced once a year increases efficiency and delivers energy savings year-round.

Servicing a home's HVAC system can take just a few hours and can include various tests to ensure the unit's internal parts are functioning correctly, a filter check and a refrigerant charge if needed. The service will likely also include clearing the drain and cleaning the unit thoroughly inside and out.

Other energy-saving tips to optimize HVAC operation and to save money and energy include:

  • Maximize the efficiency of your units by changing the filters once a month, or every three months for pleated filters.
  • Install a programmable thermostat such as a Nest thermostat, that automatically adjusts temperature settings to your lifestyle. Upgrade and save up to $100 a year in energy costs. Plus, be eligible for Georgia Power rebates of up to $100.
  • Do not place lamps, TV sets or other heat-producing devices beneath a wall-mounted thermostat as rising heat from that equipment may result in false readings.

Georgia Power customers can qualify for the Residential HVAC Service Program rebate by having a qualified contractor conduct a diagnostic assessment on the system during appropriate weather conditions, make improvements that meet the minimum program requirements and perform a post-test assessment using program approved resources.
