Cornerstone Pros in Land O’ Lakes is always keeping a sharp eye on how it can benefit its customers by saving money, especially now, in the current economic climate. The answer for this summer: rebates.
Different from a coupon, rebates allow buyers to get money back for the purchase. They come from the utility company and/or manufacturer. Once your rebate application has been processed and closed, you should see a check or credit in the mail if it wasn’t already applied at the time of purchase.
“If you’re looking to update your water heater or gas furnace, we recommend you take advantage of rebates, and act now while utility companies and manufacturers are offering them,” said Miguel Silva of Cornerstone Pros.
Price increases are happening everywhere, and Cornerstone Pros has done its best to keep its prices as low as possible and is continuing to try to make its services affordable for homeowners. They also want customers to be aware of any deals that can save them money in the long run.
Right now, utility companies, like TECO, are offering rebates for Tank Water Heating, ENERGY STAR Tank Water Heating, Tankless Water Heating, and Gas Furnaces.
“Unfortunately, water heaters age and eventually will start to fail. Some warning signs include corrosion buildup on pipe fittings, water leaks, hot water that doesn’t last long enough or hot water that is MIA,” said Silva. “We always recommend regular maintenance and planning ahead when it comes to taking care of your home. This will save you money, and allow you to budget for future repairs.”
Cornerstone Pros recommends going tankless. While the rebate is offered for tankless systems, it’s best to take advantage of it. Tankless water heating not only gets rid of that enormous tank, but it also carries a longer warranty than the average water heater.
“Tankless water heaters heat up on-demand for 99% operational efficiency,” adds Silva.
This guarantees that customers don’t have to pay to maintain the heat; they will only need to pay when they use the hot water. Tankless isn’t instant hot water, but it does warrant endless hot water throughout someone’s home.
“Tankless heaters were engineered with safety in mind; their designs incorporate numerous user-friendly features along with technologies like dry-fire defense, freeze protection, smart-grid capabilities and leak detection that prevent product failure,” said Silva.
There are plenty more rebates to take advantage of this summer. Manufacturers also are offering rebates to customers who are looking to update their appliances. Right now, you can receive $1,000 off of the Daikin Fit System and $500 off the Daikin 20 Seer System.
