Cash For Clunker Appliances Coming This Fall.

August 27, 2009

Beginning this fall, a $300 rebate program under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 will encourage consumers to buy new ENERGY STAR-rated home appliances. The new program authorizes rebates of between $50 – $200 for purchases of efficient household appliances. This is great news for folks who have been thinking of replacing their old energy hog refrigerators or freezers, as newer energy-efficient models can save up to $150 a year in utility costs – and use WAY less energy, helping us all. The appliances that are covered under the program will include:

  • Central and window air conditioners
  • Heat pumps
  • Furnaces
  • Washing Machines
  • Dishwashers
  • Freezers
  • Refrigerators
  • Water heaters

    I’m excited about this new ‘Cash for Refrigerators’ program, I think it will have a lot of benefits.. Including economic and green. Small business owners will get a much needed spike in business, I just hope that the old appliances are disposed of properly (hopefully this will somehow be regulated).
