TYLER, TX — The Pacific Gas & Electric Company (PG&E) is offering its customers in Northern California a rebate when they install an American Standard cooling and heating system in their home. Homeowners who purchase and install new American Standard Split Systems or Packaged Units (including TXV valves) and live in designated PG&E climate zones are eligible for rebates.

CFM Equipment Distributors Inc., an American Standard distributor, is taking part in PG&E’s consumer rebate program for the second consecutive year. Nearly 80% of CFM Equipment’s 95 American Standard Dealers are currently involved in the program.

According to American Standard, the rebate program is designed to encourage homeowners to increase the efficiency of their cooling and heating units by installing new energy-efficient equipment. The manufacturer says that customers can obtain rebates of $100 to $500 for new cooling and heating equipment, as well as an additional $200 for installing a gas furnace with a 92% Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating.

“This is a great program by PG&E that promotes the use of high efficiency cooling and heating systems for homes in Northern California,” said Lee Hendrickson, western regional sales manager for American Standard. “As a company, we too are strong advocates of energy conservation.”

Once a new system is purchased and installed, a homeowner submits a copy of PG&E’s “Home Energy Efficiency Rebate Program” application to PG&E along with a home improvement contract detailing the installation provided by the dealer. Upon receipt of the information, PG&E will mail the rebate directly to the homeowner.
