    • How to Purchase New Central Air and Get $995 Trade-In


      National Program Helps us trade-in old, non-compliant Freon systems

      By Jim Wilson 
      As recently publicized by USA Today, it is a little known, and a somewhat inconvenient fact that Home Central A/C’s using R-22 (most commonly know as ‘FREON’) are no longer being made as of this past January 2010. A/C’s today now use R410A, a more efficient, environmentally sound refrigerant than the Old Freon. R410A has actually been used in Home A/C’s since 1996, but has only penetrated a small portion of the market because of a lack of urgency, until now.
      This phase out step is a Federally mandated requirement originally set in motion by the Clean Air Act of 1992.  You may even remember when this happened with our cars in 1992.  However, unlike our cars, existing central A/C cannot use R410A because it is compressed at a much higher pressure and requires different equipment.
      This now leaves the majority of homeowners in the U.S. sitting on Obsolete, ‘Old Freon’ systems to cool their home.
       One Hour Air Conditioning, one of North America’s leaders and Experts in Home Service, have put together an exclusive ‘National Comfort Compliance’ (NCC) Program to help homeowners replace their now ‘Obsolete’ FREON systems.  This program takes advantage of three (3) separate, little known programs to help minimize the investment impact of installing a Compliant Central A/C system that is 2010 Federally compliant.
      #1 –$300 in Government Tax Credits and rebates have been made available for qualifying systems being installed, many of which qualify under the NCC Program.
      #2 - $995 NCC Cash Trade-in on old Freon systems toward the new Compliant A/C
      #3 - A special Home Improvement line of credit with America’s #1 retail financer: NO MONEY DOWN along with either 12 months no interest OR low 9.9% APR options on Compliant systems

      What To Do Next
       Smart Homeowners are calling One Hour Air Conditioning to take advantage of their exclusive National Comfort Compliance (NCC) Program before the deadline. The Baton Rouge area One Hour should be reached at 225-752-0001.  They can schedule for a Technician to come out and perform a FREE, no-obligation Compliance, and Energy analysis.  At that time they will be able to share all program details and the cost on a compliant system that meets your needs and budget, one of your choosing.
       Do not wait until summer when your system breaks down at the most inconvenient time, and you will virtually be required to be compliant, with little or no incentives. Call One Hour A/C at 752-0001 today.  The NCC Trade-in portion of $995, which comes out of One Hour’s pocket, is limited to the first 120 compliant system installations.  Also, the current deadline for the NCC program is March 31st 2011.

       Call One Hour Air Conditioning today at 752-0001.
