Milwaukee — Johnson Controls is taking steps to assist all homeowners who live and work in areas affected by Hurricane Harvey. Effective immediately, the company is offering homeowners living in Texas counties within the defined Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Disaster Area (DR-4332) rebates on the purchase of replacement heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) equipment.
Homeowners and Johnson Controls employees can apply for rebates online at www.johnsoncontrols.com/harvey. The program assigns rebates according to equipment efficiency (expressed as Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio or SEER for air conditioners and heat pumps and as a percentage for furnaces), with more efficient products earning larger rebates. The program applies to any of these YORK®, Coleman® HVAC, Luxaire®, Champion®, Fraser Johnston®, Guardian® or Evcon™ products:
Air conditioners/heat pumps
20 SEER $250
18 SEER $200
16/17 SEER $150
14 SEER (R410/R407) $100
New, high-value 14 SEER R-407C: $100
All 90+% AFUE models $150
All 80% AFUE models $75
Residential package equipment $125
Air handlers $50
Although rebates cannot be combined with other rebate offers, they can be applied for retroactively. Homeowners can call (855) 324-3650 for rebate filing assistance.
Johnson Controls is particularly hopeful that rebates on R407C units will help homeowners, because they are a cost-effective way to replace existing R-22 systems. R407C units save homeowners money and time as they work to recover from Hurricane Harvey.
To help homeowners find a trusted HVAC dealer in their area, Johnson Controls has also included a dealer locator on its landing page – www.johnsoncontrols.com/harvey. “Our hearts go out to those affected by Hurricane Harvey and we want to be sure homeowners have direct access to the services they need,” said Liz Haggerty, vice president and general manager, Unitary Products Group, Johnson Controls. “After finding a dealer near them, we encourage homeowners to have their HVAC equipment inspected, even if it seems operational, because damage to equipment is not always immediately apparent.”
The site also provides homeowners with useful information—everything from how to deal with damaged HVAC equipment to helpful tips provided by the Federal Trade Commission, FEMA and American Red Cross.
Visitors to the Johnson Controls landing page will also be able to contribute to the recovery by donating to the American Red Cross. “Although the company donates $500,000 every year to the organization as part of our Annual Disaster Giving Program, we realized the current situation calls for a more direct effort by our company,” said Haggerty. “This site makes it easy for employees to help provide the resources that are bringing relief to thousands of people in Texas and Louisiana.”
Johnson Control employees are also benefitting from actions taken by the company.
“The needs of our employees are our number one concern,” said Haggerty. “To that end, we’ve launched a Johnson Controls Harvey Relief Fund, which will allocate donations directly to employees who have lost their homes and property. I’m proud to report Johnson Controls will match donations made to this fund. Additionally, we have put together a team whose focus is assessing the impact of the storm and forming a strategy to respond to the short- and long-term needs of our employees.”
