Don’t Miss Our 2019 Appliance Rebate Deadline!
The last few months of the year can often be hectic as we try to prep and travel for holiday celebrations, while still keeping up with our typical family and work schedules. However, there’s one thing you don’t want to overlook: the chance to submit your 2019 appliance rebates!
Each year, Cape Light Compact works with its fellow Mass Save® Sponsors to provide rebates on energy-efficient appliances that are designed to make your home more comfortable and help you better manage energy costs. Qualifying purchases made from January 1, 2019 through December 31, 2019 are eligible for the 2019 rebates; you must either submit your rebate online or have your rebate postmarked by January 31, 2020.
The deadlines are fast approaching! Check out the rebate opportunities below so you can be sure not to miss out on any year-end savings!
Room Air Purifiers
Whether you’re hosting holiday gatherings or planning to enjoy peace and quiet in the comfort of your home, you’ll want the indoor air to be fresh and clean. An air purifier is perfect for filtering out dust, fireplace smoke, cooking odors, and pet dander. Unfortunately, because you must run air purifiers for extended periods of time, they can use up a significant amount of energy. ENERGY STAR® certified models can help keep energy costs in check since they use 40% less energy than standard models. Plus, the Compact offers a $40 rebate on up to 2 units.
Although the wet, humid weather of late summer and early fall has subsided and we’re instead gearing up for the chill, it’s actually a great time to invest in a dehumidifier. If the unit you ran this year didn’t perform as well as you’d like, or you’re looking for a more energy-efficient version, you may want to explore a newer model. Operating an ENERGY STAR certified dehumidifier, rather than a standard unit, can help you save more than $300 in energy costs over the dehumidifier’s lifetime. You can purchase a unit from your favorite online or brick-and-mortar vendor, or check out the small selection made available through the Mass Save online storefront. By purchasing a qualifying unit, you’ll be eligible for a $30 rebate; plus, you can receive an additional $30 rebate for recycling your old dehumidifier at one of our turn-in events. We’ll begin posting events in Spring 2020.
Now’s the time of year when you may find yourself doing more loads of laundry than usual. Whether it’s from bundling up in layer-after-layer to brace for the cold or having to dry off your wet clothing after a day of shoveling snow, you may find your pile of laundry growing and your dryer, in particular, being put into high use.
Dryer technology has come a long way, which means updating to a newer model can provide long-term energy-savings. Not only do ENERGY STAR certified models use approximately 20% less energy to dry your clothes than conventional dryers, but smarter models can even detect when clothing is dry so that the dryer doesn’t run longer than needed. The Compact offers a $50 incentive for the purchase of a qualifying dryer model.
Fridge and Freezer Recycling
If the New Year conjures up the idea of “out with the old, in with the new”, we’ve got the perfect rebate for you. Our fridge and freezer recycling program offers a $75 rebate to customers who recycle their units through our no-cost program. Just schedule a pickup, and we’ll remove your unit for no cost and with no hassle. Plus, you can feel good about your decision, since 95% of a fridge or freezer can be recycled and transformed into everyday items, such as plastic for consumer goods or metal for building materials.
Room Air Conditioners
Even though we’re just approaching the start of winter, hot and humid New England summers will be back before you know it. Window air conditioners are an easy way to escape the heat, but it’s important to opt for an energy-efficient unit so your summer energy bills don’t jump too high. The Compact offers a $40 rebate on qualifying room air conditioners, which use approximately 10% less energy than non-certified models. Just make sure that you choose an appropriately-sized model based on the room size, otherwise, the unit won’t efficiently cool your space. You can follow these tips to make sure you don’t buy a unit that is too large or too small.
As the year winds down, make sure to treat yourself to the gift of energy-savings. Whether it’s claiming rebates for qualifying appliances you already bought or making some additional year-end purchases to upgrade your appliances, don’t miss out on these chances to save.
