If you bought a water heater this year — or think yours should be replaced soon — this post could be worth $300 to you.
KSTP reported last night that taxpayers have until the end of 2011 to buy energy efficient products to qualify for incentives, such as a $300 water heater tax credit. See the website for full details on what qualifies and the maximum amounts you can receive.
Also if you for replace your water heater with an energy efficient model, local utility companies such as Xcel and Centerpoint both offer water heater rebates (about $40-$200) , which you can find on the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency.
I’ve blogged previously about this summer’s air conditioning unit shortage, which will likely not be noticed until more retailers sell out (we still have stock; we were shipped 100% of our order.).
This weekend, my brother Joe Warner shared tips on what to know when buying a window AC, and more importantly, how to keep it working for summers to come.

Really, maintenance becomes most relevant during a manufacturing shortage. If you don’t have a window air conditioner, you probably bought one or are buying one this week.
But what if you already have one, and it breaks down in the middle of July? You probably will be out of luck when trying to replace it. So stay cool and listen to my brother’s wisdom!
As always, professional installation and maintenance is a good investment to consider, and we offer easy (no-sweat, ha!) plans for you.
Twin Cities Live reporter Emily Engberg visited the Warners’ Stellian warehouse to talk to Bob Warner, operations director, about our waste reduction initiatives, including our appliance recycling and Styrofoam and cardboard recycling programs.
