Underscoring the company’s continuing commitment to environmental sustainability, Concepcion Industrial Corporation (CIC) through its subsidiary Concepcion-Carrier Air Conditioning Company (CCAC) has partnered with Meralco in promoting responsible air conditioning unit disposal and recycling with its Aircon Trade-in Program.
Most people with old air conditioners continue to use their own units without knowing that they actually consume as much as 50 percent more electricity. There are also those who resort to selling their old units to junk shops without thinking about the negative impact to the environment brought about by the harmful chemicals. With CIC’s AC Trade-in Program, the harmful chemicals contained in old air conditioning units are carefully extracted by a DENR accredited agency and turned over to the DENR for proper disposal. Metal and plastic parts are also appropriately recycled by the same DENR accredited agency.
CIC sees the AC Trade-in Program as an important step to get more people to become more environmentally responsible through the products they use.
“Many people are not aware that old air conditioners—those that are ten years and older—actually consume more energy than newer models,” noted Concepcion. “Replacing these with new air conditioning units will certainly enable people to enjoy significant savings in their electricity bill. Less electricity means less carbon emission.”
With CIC’s AC Trade-in Program, customers also get to enjoy discounts on new, environmentally balanced AC models by trading in their older units. They simply have to present the AC Trade-in Program coupon sent with their Meralco electricity bills along with old air conditioners of any brand to accredited service centers, where they will receive cash vouchers which they can use to get discounts on selected Carrier and Condura window-type air conditioning products.
“Our environmentally responsible air conditioning units not only use non-ozone depleting refrigerants, they are more energy-efficient too,” said Harold Pernikar, Jr., CCAC Director and Head of the Consumer Solutions Group. “With the combination of both advantages, our consumers will enjoy guilt-free cooling comfort.”
Discount vouchers can be used for purchase at participating branches of Abenson, SM Appliance Store, Robinson’s, Anson’s Emporium, Western Marketing, and Automatic Center.

The CIC AC Trade-In Program runs from October 1 to December 31, 2016.
