Spring is officially here! But with traces of snow and chilly temperatures still in the forecast, warmer days seem far on the horizon. Think balmy thoughts and kick off the season right – check out these energy efficient products and programs to help you enjoy the warmer months with more money in your pocket.
Though March can still be cold, doing some spring cleaning around the house is a good way to help it feel like spring inside. This is the perfect opportunity to finally do something about the old, inefficient refrigerator or freezer sitting around the house or garage. PSEG Long Island will come to a home or office and pick up an old, working refrigerator or freezer for free and recycle it responsibly. Along with the energy savings customers receive by recycling their inefficient appliance, those participating in the recycling program will also receive a $50 reward. An additional bonus $35 voucher will be given if an old, working room air conditioner or dehumidifier is recycled at the same time as the refrigerator pick up.
Daydreaming About a Dip
Memorial Day is the unofficial kick-off to summer and the start of pool season for many on Long Island and the Rockaways. But before cannon-balling into the water, customers should ensure their pool is in tip-top shape. Need to replace a pool pump? We’re here to help. PSEG Long island offers rebates of up to $350 on new ENERGY STAR® certified pool pumps. A new ENERGY STAR certified model will use up to 70 percent less energy than a standard unit.
Summer on Long Island and the Rockaways is all about post-beach barbecues with friends and family. But make sure there is good lighting to make sure the festivities really shine. LED lights use 75 percent less energy and will last 25 times longer than incandescent bulbs, helping to keep the party going even when the sun goes down. PSEG Long Island offers discounts on LED lighting throughout the year at participating retailers or through its Online Energy Efficiency Products Catalog.
Though too much heat sounds far-fetched now, come July, it will be refreshing to step into an air-conditioned room after being out in the summer sun all day. If a customer’s room air conditioner or even central air conditioning system barely made it through last summer, now is a good time to look into a newer and more efficient system. PSEG Long Island offers a rebate of up to $50 on a new ENERGY STAR certified room air conditioner. An energy efficient model uses approximately 15 percent less energy than conventional models. The utility also offers rebates of up to $600 on a central air conditioning system through its Cool Homes program. Rebates are available for ducted central air conditioners, ducted air source heat pumps, geothermal heat pumps, and ductless mini split systems.
