Appliance rebate program begins in NY
The Great Appliance Swap Out kicked off Friday, offering consumers rebates for replacing their old appliances with new ones that meet Energy Star standards.
Refrigerators and washers qualify for a $75 rebate, while freezers qualify for $50. However, customers who choose to recycle their appliances will be granted a bigger rebate.
"I think it's going to stimulate business, but certainly it gives the consumer an opportunity to get additional money back for buying an energy-efficient item," says Ron Yoel, sales manager of Silver City Appliance Center.
The federally funded program is scheduled to run until Feb. 21, or until the $17 million allocated for the rebates run out.
