WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) -- Replace that out-dated air conditioner, furnace or old home appliance with an Energy Star qualified model and get a federal rebate, up to $200, for each one.
It's all part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
You will not have to trade in the old appliances to receive the rebate.
But states are expected to have a recycle plan in place.
