Nebrasky’s May 2024 Appearance on WTBQ’s “Our Town”

Do you have an unusually high electric bill during the summer? Does it take over an hour for the temperature to drop more than one degree? Do your allergies get worse when you turn your AC on?

If you answered yes to all of these questions, your AC system is most likely in desperate need of some TLC — maybe even (shudder) an upgrade or a replacement.

But don’t panic! New York State (NYS) is offering generous rebates for the installation of heat pump systems, meaning the time to make the switch is NOW! 

Nebrasky’s Jesse Blitz hopped on WTBQ’s Our Town on May 9 with some pointers on how to tell if your AC system is healthy or in need of replacing, along with information on incredible rebates offered by NYS; get rebates ranging from $2,000 all the way to $12,000 for switching from oil or gas to an electric system!

Not sure where to start? As the Orange County Clean Energy Campaign’s designated Heat Pump Specialist, Nebrasky is here to help you figure out the best heat pump system (and rebate offer) for you! 

Listen to this month’s episode of WTBQ’s Our Town with Jesse Blitz to learn more about the benefits of heat pump systems and how to qualify for NYS rebates!

Do you want to take the quiz for yourself? Answer the questions below with a YES or NO. Each YES is worth 1 point.

  • Is your system older than 15 years old?
  • Does your AC system have R22 refrigerant (check the nameplate/label on the outside of the unit)?
  • Are there any rooms in your home that don’t feel the same as the rest?
  • Do you have an unusually high electric bill during the summer?
  • Have you spent more than $2,000 on repairs on your HVAC unit in the past 2 years?
  • Does it take an hour or more for the temperature to drop more than 1 degree?
  • Do your allergies get worse when you turn your AC on?
  • Is your outdoor system unusually loud?
  • Do you have any humidity issues in your home?
  • Do you have any electrical components that look charred, singed, or rusted?
  • Is your condenser pad level?
  • If you were going to get a new system, do you want to get money back on your replacement/installation from the state?

If you have 5 points, your AC is probably fine (though, don’t forget to schedule your annual maintenance to make sure).

If you have 6-8 points, your AC might be due for a replacement soon, but you have time to plan and prepare.

If you have 9 or more points, you should definitely call Nebrasky TODAY to schedule your replacement.
