There’s no doubt about it—upgrading the energy efficiency of your home with new air conditioning, furnace, heat pump installation, or by replacing your insulation will improve your home comfort and save money on your energy bills. But it can also be a costly upfront investment!

There are ways to make home improvement projects more affordable, but you have to be willing to dig around, shop the available financing options, and research available rebates and incentives for your Phoenix, Tempe, Chandler, or Scottsdale home. It can be confusing and frustrating if you don’t know where to start!

You could do all that work… or you could turn to Ideal Energy, where we make sifting through all of the options out there easy and can help you find the best deals and offers for your house. Here are three smart ways to pay for upgrades for your home in 2020.

1. Take Advantage of Low Mortgage Rates with a Cash-Out Refinance

Mortgage rates are at record lows this year, and refinances are 50% higher than they were a year ago. Homeowners are taking advantage of refinancing, and using that extra money to pay for needed upgrades to their home, whether it’s new heating or AC installation, removing and replacing their home’s insulation or sealing and upgrading their ductwork in order to get rid of hot rooms during the hot Arizona summer months!

If your furnace is blowing cool air, or your energy bills have been rising for years, now is a great opportunity for a cash-out refinance that will give you the extra money you need to make a smart investment in your home.

2. Qualify for Trane’s Fall 2020 HVAC Promo

This year’s fall promo from Trane is officially underway, and offers a great opportunity to get the HVAC upgrades you need for less. The Trane Fall Promotion 2020 runs from October 1 through November 16, and you can receive up to $600 off a number of new Trane heat pumps and air conditioners. Best of all, you can combine your instant Trane rebate with any of Ideal Air’s financing options to get started on your home upgrade sooner rather than later.

Trane HVAC equipment is well known for its durability and energy efficiency, and upgrading your home can transform your energy costs and improve your year-round indoor comfort.

3. Talk to Ideal About Other Available Financing and Rebates

APS and SRP utility rebates are also available to help make home improvement projects more affordable. These rebates can help reduce the cost of energy audits, insulation installation, and even new AC unit and heat pump upgrades. While the rebate amount varies depending on the utility company and the specifics of your home, SRP customers can get as much as $1,125 back on qualifying air conditioners or heat pumps, so in many cases the savings can really add up!

Finally, we offer financing options as well for homeowners that want to take advantage of rebates or soon-to-expire promotions but don’t have the upfront money to get started. Through Synchrony Financial, homeowners can receive 0% financing for 18 months or 5.99% APR, and we also offer a special Trane HVAC financing deal through Wells Fargo!
