The Coolsaver A/C Tune-up Program is a grant from the Department of Energy for only residential Entergy Louisiana customers. The purpose of this program is to collect data before and after a coil cleaning and refrigerant adjustment to show how much more efficient a system will operate after a "cleaning". Any residential Entergy Louisiana customer with a central air conditioner or heat pump that is at least one year old and has not participated in the CoolSaver Tune-up program within the past 5 years is eligible to receive a $150.00 discount for the CoolSaver program . This $150.00 "discount" or "rebate" is in the form of a $150.00 check sent from Entergy directly to the Coolsaver contractor (us) for our time and efforts to collect their data. It is called a discount or rebate as it does not cover all the cost associated with this service.
Their instructions to the contractors for cleaning coils in order to meet their data collection purposes are to only brush clean the coils. Most coils will require a deeper method of cleaning, including cleaning with coil-safe chemicals or removing coils and blower wheels, nor are cleaning coils and adjusting refrigerant the only items required for a complete "Check and Service" of an AC system. In addition to the $150.00 check we will receive directly from Entergy or the additional charge we must collect from the Entergy client for any refrigerant required, we must charge the Entergy client in order for the system to be properly serviced an additional $150.00 to do the following items:
- Seal air leaks around plenums and equipment.
- Clear bacteria blockages in drain pans and condensate drains
- Check for loose insulation in equipment that could block air flow
- Check electrical components for wear and inefficiency
- Chemically clean condensing and evaporator coils
- Inspect furnace components
There is another CoolSaver grant available for Duct Sealing. We will take readings of your home's air flow before and after we seal any air leaks in your ductwork, plenums and equipment cabinets, and Entergy pays us approximately $0.75 per CFM we are able to recapture, which maybe be $25.00 - $100.00 rebate toward our charge of $450.00 per system. By sealing in air that should be distributed to your living areas and not escaping into your unconditioned attic, Duct Sealing will make your system more efficient and lower your energy bills.
