Homeowners who purchase an energy-efficient HVAC system from Armstrong Air will get more than just energy savings.

Through its “Cool Comfort Rewards,” Armstrong Air will give homeowners up to $700 in gift cards after the purchase of a 16- or 18 seasonal-energy-efficiency-rated air conditioner or heat pump matched with a variable-speed indoor unit.

The gift cards may be used at dozens of retail stores and restaurants, including Best Buy and Kohl’s, Subway and Macaroni Grill. Some online-only retailers, such as the iTunes store, are also participating.

“Homeowners who need to replace their HVAC systems always seek the best deal. Armstrong Air dealers are very competitive and now, with Cool Comfort Rewards that big-ticket purchase doesn’t have to stop consumers from spending money on eating out or buying spring clothes for their kids,” said Sloan Black, merchandising manager. “And those purchases in the retail sector make a difference to the local and national economies. We want to do our part to keep things moving along toward a full economic recovery.”

The Cool Comfort Rewards program is in effect through June 15, and is available through participating Armstrong Air dealers in the United States and Canada.

“The combination of the Cool Comfort Rewards promotion with a tax credit of up to $1,500 for U.S. homeowners can reduce their overall expenditure dramatically,” said Black.
