Illinois Homeowners Qualify for Unique Savings

September 14, 2010

Been thinking about remodeling your kitchen but putting it off?

Between Uncle Sam’s “Cash for Clunkers” program available for household appliances and Wood-Mode Fine Custom Cabinetry’s Special Savings Event, there’s certainly no better chance to save than now.

The Energy STAR Replacement Appliance Rebate Program, which had previously expired in Illinois in April, was recently reinstated.

Illinois homeowners now have a second chance to receive an instant rebate on Energy Star-eligible appliances purchased on September 24. This program provides an incentive to replace your older, inefficient domestic devices with Energy Star-rated models designed to yield substantial savings on your home’s energy bills.

“If you’ve been procrastinating on your kitchen renovation project, now is the perfect time to get it in gear,” said Karla Krengel, Chief Operating Officer for Chicago-based Krengel & Associates, exclusive representatives for Wood-Mode and Brookhaven cabinetry in Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. “Not only can you save serious dollars by capitalizing on the cash for appliance clunkers, but you will do your part to help our environment, too. In fact, I plan on taking advantage of this chance myself.”

Krengel noted that a Wood-Mode (custom) and Brookhaven (semi-custom) cabinetry promotion is also running until November 12. This promotion offers 50 percent off savings on an upgraded door style, wood species or finish. That’s maximum flexibility and can equate to thousands of dollars in savings, she said.

“Combine the savings on the appliances with the savings on cabinetry and it’s an opportunity I haven’t seen before,” said Krengel. “Put the money in your pocket or invest it in upgrades, some of which might have been out of reach otherwise.”
