What is Cool Cash?

Understanding Carrier’s HVAC Rebate ProgramHVAC rebate program

We are all looking for ways to save money or stretch our budget – and rebates are a great way to do that! If you are in the market for a new HVAC system, Carrier has a promotion designed to help make the purchase a little easier – Cool Cash.

The promotion offers homeowners a rebate for purchasing a qualifying Carrier system or a qualifying unit and control. That means if you are looking to upgrade your HVAC system, you could be eligible to get some money back.

Here’s what you need to know:

 

  • How Can I Qualify?


In order to qualify, you must purchase an approved system during the time of the promotion, which begins on April 1, 2015. To get more information on what products or product combinations qualify you can call Carrier Consumer Relations at 1-800-CARRIER or find a dealer near you by going to the Stay Comfy Minnesota website.  

 

  • How Much Can I Get Back?


The amount you will get back in the rebate depends on the system’s SEER rating – or how the Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) rates the energy efficiency of the system. A product with a higher SEER rating means the more energy efficient it is, and the higher the rebate.

Make sure you are purchasing a system that has qualifying SEER rating, not just a unit. Keith Hill, manager, technical support, for Minnesota Air says a contractor claiming to sell a high efficiency “unit” is really not. Replacing only the outdoor unit and leaving the existing evaporator coil will provide an unknown efficiency level, which would disqualify you for any utility rebates and Cool Cash.

 

  • How Do I Fill Out A Claim?


You will need to fill out one claim form per system in order to get the rebate, and the offer is not valid with any other Carrier factory-sponsored rebates. You can, however, fill out multiple claim forms and receive multiple rebates if you purchased multiple qualifying units.

Note that when you fill out the form, you will need to provide information provided by your Carrier dealer. The Carrier dealer can help you complete the rebate claim form by providing necessary model number information along with dealer identification information. 

 

  • How Are Rebates Paid?


Rebates are paid with a prepaid card. Once your claim has been submitted and you’ve received a confirmation number, allow 4-6 weeks for the prepaid card to be mailed to you.

  •  Are There Other Rebates Available?


Yes! Nearly all utility companies in Minnesota, for example Xcel Energy and CenterPoint Energy, have incentives and rebates available. In past years, rebates from Xcel have been as much as $450.
