Save Money & Energy
Save Money & Energy

Saving energy and money go hand-in-hand. We can all contribute to reducing Austin’s energy demand by making simple lifestyle changes and energy-efficient home improvements. When demand decreases, we all save. Austin Energy is committed to helping our customers achieve the greatest savings possible.

Window Air Conditioners

Replace your old window air conditioner and save money.

Receive a $50 rebate from Austin Energy to buy a new ENERGY STAR®-qualified window air conditioner.

ENERGY STAR window air conditioners use up to 15% less energy than conventional models. Timers on the unit let you adjust temperature settings for comfort and savings.

Austin Energy offers a $50 rebate to help you purchase a qualifying ENERGY STAR-qualified window air conditioner.

Be sure you choose the right size based on the cooling area square footage. A unit that is too large for your room will make your air conditioned space damp and uncomfortable. The benefits of getting a right-sized unit include:

  • Getting the best value
  • Enjoying optimal operation cost
  • Removing humidity properly
