applianceAs a Christian who cares about God’s creation, I want to upgrade some of my appliances. I want to upgrade my dishwasher for several reasons, It’s noisy and old, and I want something more efficient, and that matches my other appliances in my newly remodeled kitchen. Alas, appliances aren’t cheap. But if you manage to submit a rebate form in April and succeed in getting a rebate coupon, then you will get some credit toward that new purchase. This is exactly what I’m planning.

Here is the breakdown on the item and the amount of credit you can get:

  • Refrigerators – $240
  • Freezers – $180
  • Room air conditioners – $45
  • Clothes washers – $150 or $180
  • Dishwashers – $110 or $140
  • Central air conditioners – $600, $800 or $1,000
  • Heat pumps – $1,200 to $1,600
  • Water heaters – $255 to $640

All of these items are eligible for an additional $75 credit if you can prove that the company which hauled the old machine away recycled it.

This government program will allow me to make a purchase on a more efficient appliance, which will lower my monthly bills (just a bit), and lower my impact on God’s creation. I’m all for leaving a smaller environmental footprint.
