M�� 5, 2010 New APS Incentive Help Businesses Cut Cooling Costs Prepare Your AC for the Long Hot Summer PHOENIX- APS non-residential cus- tomers have a new opportunity to cut cooling costs this summer. The APS Solutions for Business program is now offering a 75 percent rebate (up to $240 per AC system) for an Advanced Diag- nostic Tune Up. This service can im- prove the AC system performance and save up to 7 percent on cooling costs. Just like a car, a building’s air condi- tioning system works most effi ciently and reliably when regularly main- tained. Poorly-maintained equipment consumes more energy, costs more to operate and is prone to breakdown. The Advanced Diagnostic Tune Up can improve the system’s current operat- ing effi ciency and identify potential repairs before it breaks. A cooling system that is at least three years old and four tons or larger (pack- age or split) is a good candidate for this service, according to Wayne Dob- berpuhl, Program Manager. The program offers additional rebates to repair malfunctioning economizers and test and repair duct systems. “This is a great time to investigate these savings opportunities before the hot summer months,” said Dob- berpuhl. “Together with the tune up, these steps can cut your cooling costs by nearly one-fourth!” Desert Messenger goes ~ YEAR-ROUND ~ publishing once a month during the summer : THE FIRST WED.
