If you are thinking about adding or replacing air conditioning in your home our Cool Cash Incentive Program can help you select just the right system for your needs, and save energy and money!
For example, we know that many Utah families believe upgrading air conditioning means moving from a rooftop evaporative cooler to central air conditioning. But Utah's climate is ideal for evaporative cooling. Evaporative cooling is no longer confined to rooftops. Evaporative systems can be installed indoors, and vented throughout your house through existing vents (called whole-house evaporative cooling). Evaporative cooling will create significant savings on your summer electricity costs compared to central air conditioning. Because evaporative systems save energy, participating UAMPS' energy partners are offering cash incentives when you purchase a new, replacement, premium, or whole-house evaporative system.
However, if you are planning on installing a central air conditioning system, proper equipment sizing, installation, operation and maintenance will make a big difference in the level of efficiency, and therefore cost of your new system. So participating UAMPS' energy partners will offer incentives for high-efficiency appliances, properly sized, and properly installed systems.
