Maintaining your central air conditioning (AC) system might not be something you think about, but it should be. Especially when you realize that cooling accounts for 44% of your home energy bill. Your AC system is complex, and needs regular maintenance, just like your car.
Essential, twice-a-year maintenance can help your AC system perform better—to keep your home more comfortable, lower your costs and reduce the chances of a breakdown. Even better: PG&E offers rebates to help you complete this service.
How It Works
Only contractors who have met rigorous criteria can assist you through the program, and will:
- Spend an hour or more at your home going over how your system is working and what you can expect from the program.
- Complete a detailed system assessment.
- Provide you with a detailed evaluation and recommendations, along with information about qualifying for rebates.
You decide what work, if any, you want your contractor to perform. Once the work has been completed, your contractor will help you apply for PG&E rebates to offset your costs.
