Energy Star Rebate Program – Best Appliances in Category

By milo on Jun 26, 2010 | 8 Comments

These days, it pays to be environmentally conscious. By purchasing Energy Star rated appliances, you not only help Mother Earth by consuming less energy, you also fatten your wallet by qualifying for the Energy Star tax rebate program. In addition, owners of Energy Star appliances save substantial amounts of money on utility costs, as less energy consumed means less energy paid for. The financial benefits of making the switch are obvious, but it isn’t always as clear which of these appliances are worth taking home, as “energy-friendly” products are sometimes assumed to be of lower quality or effectiveness. We’ve done our research and have concluded that this perception is largely incorrect, as advances in modern technology have allowed for the development of durable, long-lasting products for every room in the house. Today, we review some worthwhile Energy Star appliances to install that can help you conserve both types of green.

Bosch Stainless Steel Refrigerator

This Bosch Energy Star rated refrigerator features the perfect blend of luxury and practicality for the environmentally concerned shopper. The Bosch offers optimized space for big loads of groceries and spill-proof shelves that contain drips and liquids. Dual evaporators eliminate odors before they have the chance to stick to other foods or make their way into your kitchen. Humidity controlled crispers keep fruit and vegetables tasting delicious and membrane technology locks in freshness until you’re ready to enjoy your produce. The energy conscious Bosch also saves you money on your utility bills and offers purchasers a $50.00 Energy Star rebate. But hurry! The tax rebate offer expires June 30th.

Magnum Winchester Biomass Stove

The Mangum Winchester Biomass stove is an excellent investment both for the tax credit you can receive and for the energy you conserve. These stoves use 75% less thermal energy than traditional stoves by burning Biomass fuel that is made from plants and wood waste. The Winchester can burn for an entire 56 hours on one standard 68 pound hopper of fuel, providing comfortable and efficient heat for your entire home. Simply for installing one of these stoves, you automatically qualify for the tax credit, which is good for 30% of the price of the stove up to $1500.00. For more information, check out the Energy Star rebate website.

KitchenAid Stainless Steel Built-In Classic Series Dishwasher

If you are looking for a new dishwasher that goes easy on water and energy consumption while still getting your plates squeaky clean, look no further than the Energy Star rated KitchenAid Classic Series. Featuring soil-detection technology, the KitchenAid can actually detect how dirty your dishes are and adjust water levels and cycle time to fit the job, making it one of the most advanced dishwashers on the market. In fact, this machine has been shown to use up to 20% less energy than non-EnergyStar rated appliances. Less energy doesn’t mean less clean, however, as the multi-directional washing system attacks dishes from 10 angles, ensuring a sparkling finish to every cycle. Buy one before July 5th and receive a $50.00 rebate.

Energy Efficient Roofing

If you’re tired of paying exorbitant electricity bills during the summer just to cool your home, you should strongly consider installing an energy star qualified roof. Such roofs are made out of special cooling granules that reflect the sun’s rays, lowering the surface temperature by as much as 100 degrees Fahrenheit. A cooler roof means less heat transferred into your home, which decreases the need to run the air conditioner all day long. Lower electricity bills, a cooler home during the summer, and a tax rebate for 30% of the roofing supplies (up to $1500.00) makes the Energy Star efficient roof a worthwhile investment for any environmentally conscious home owner. For more information, check out the Energy Star rebate website.

Windmax Small Wind Turbine

If you have sufficient roof space or an unobstructed yard, it might make sense to install several Windmax small wind turbines to help defray the cost of electricity. These devices harness the natural power of the wind to generate electricity for your home. Best of all, you don’t need to choose between traditional power or wind power, as these turbines integrate seamlessly with your current electrical system so that when wind is not available, your home will be powered by the electricity provider of your choice. The tax rebate is also quite substantial, especially for businesses considering investing serious money in a great deal of turbines. Your rebate is good for 30% of the cost with no ceiling. Check out the Energy Star rebate website for more information.

KitchenAid French Door Refrigerator

This Energy Star rated KitchenAid French Door refrigerator provides a touch of class and sophistication to your kitchen while going easy on your energy bills. Through intelligent new technology, this unit can actually sense the temperature of the food placed inside of it, and will adjust cooling power as needed to conserve energy while keeping your groceries fresh and cold. Easy-to-clean spill-proof glass shelves help keep the inside of the unit sanitized, while sliding freezer baskets and humidity controlled crispers offer increased room and convenience for storing your groceries. Best of all, the KitchenAid qualifies buyers for $200 rebate if you buy before July 5th.

McQuay Geothermal Heat Pump

The McQuay Geothermal Heat Pump is ideal for home use and qualifies for an Energy Star tax rebate of 30% of the cost with no ceiling. Geothermal heat pumps use energy from the ground to heat or cool a home. Most models are also capable of replacing your water heater by using the Earth’s natural heat to provide hot water. Each heat pump comes with two components: the indoor unit and an outdoor piece to be buried deep into the ground. When winter strikes, the outdoor piece collects heat energy from the earth and sends it to the indoor unit where it is intensified and distributed to the home. In the hot summer months, the system works in reverse by collecting heat energy from the home and sending it outdoors and into the ground. For more information, check out the Energy Star rebate website.

Advanced Main Air Circulating Fan

(source)

A circulating fan is a blower that transfers the heat your furnace produces and then circulates it around the house. This component uses the most electricity out of the entire heating system, and is therefore prime for a remodeled version with better efficiency. This is where an advanced main air circulating fan comes in. This product uses some of the electricity powering it to actually help the furnace heat your home. In this way, advanced circulating fans consume much less power than traditional models and also reduce the amount of heat the furnace must produce. Buying and installing this environmentally friendly device qualifies you for a tax rebate for 30% of the co,st up to $1,500.00. For more information, check out the Energy Star rebate website.

Carrier Infinity Series Central Air Conditioner

(source)

The Infinity Series central air conditioner meets Energy Star requirements and qualifies for a 30% tax rebate on cost up to $1500.00. These units use much less energy than traditional air conditioning units, which are known summertime electricity hogs. The Carrier Infinity Series is an especially great choice because it comes with a 10 year limited warranty and actually actively works to improve the air quality within the home. Check out the Energy Star rebate website for more information.

Therma Tru Doors

(source)

Therma Tru doors are designed to keep the heat or air conditioning from leaking out of the home. This translates to a decreased need to run the furnace or air conditioner as frequently in order to keep your house at a comfortable temperature. By reducing your consumption of home heat and cooling, these doors can actually save a significant amount of money on your utility bill. Additionally, they qualify for an Energy Star tax rebate of up to $1500.00. For more information, check out the Energy Star rebate website.

    Wow! I want a wind turbine for my back yard. And its incredible to think that they can actually create an energy efficient air conditioner and dishwasher.
    But if you buy these, you have to know how to get your rebate. I liked this article for that.

    Getting an energy efficient roof seems like one of the most rational “green” decisions around. Particularly if you live anywhere that it gets hot enough to need air conditioning, and frankly that seems like everywhere at this point. Sacrament, Reno, Vermont, etc. I know in Reno back in the 80s people didn’t put AC in because the climate didn’t require it, but now days it sure does. (I’m not suggesting this is because of an inconvenient OR convenient truth, I’m just saying)

  3. I had no idea you would have a wind generator here. Pretty cool!
