Evaporative Air Cooling Rebate
Amount: $100.00 to $300.00
The PNM Air Conditioning Rebate program reduces the cost for residential customers to purchase and install certain energy-efficient cooling equipment in their homes.
Advantages: Works very well in dry climates; lower cost to purchase, install, and operate
Disadvantages: Adds moisture to the air, so it may not work as well on humid days; may negatively affect indoor air quality
Evaporative Cooling, sometimes referred to as "swamp cooling" is used to lower air temperature by using the process of evaporation. Warm dry air is changed to cool, moist air and the heat of the outside air is used to evaporate water, causing a cooling effect.
