‘Cash for Appliances’ Running Strong
Before you throw that old air conditioner, gas furnace or washing machine in the trash and on to a landfill, you may want to check out what your state can offer you through the Cash for Appliances rebate program. No, it’s not too good to be true.
After exhausting the funds available for the program, some states are getting ready to close up shop. Vermont, for example, doled out $559,000 and collected everything from washing machines and refrigerators to gas furnaces and tankless water heaters. But there are still 33 states and territories just waiting to hand out those rebates.
Tennessee has a whopping $5,936,000 allocated for the program, but like Washington, D.C., they aren’t ready to launch quite yet. Other states like California are deciding whether they should extend the program to include more appliances, such as dishwashers, washing machines and refrigerators.
What is that old appliance doing for you, anyway? Wouldn’t it look much better as money in the bank?
