Air Conditioner Exchange

AC Program 2020 – May 4 – August 27
Tuesday and Thursday Only
by Appointment Only

67 new window Air Conditioners were provided in 2019.

This year clients will need to call the VAC office at (573) 874-2273 for eligibility requirements at this time. We will be doing no-contact appointments and clients need to have their most recent utility bill from either the City of Columbia or Boone Electric faxed to VAC at (573) 874-9172. 

To participate in this program, you must have the following items:

  • Older, inefficient and/or broken window air conditioner unit to exchange
  • Most recent electric bill for your address FAXED to VAC from Boone Electric Cooperative or City Of Columbia
  • Original form of identification for everyone at the address
  • Proof of all income for everyone at the address

Every summer VAC works together with the Columbia Water and Light Department and Boone Electric Cooperative to provide the Air Conditioner Exchange Program. This program allows low-income Columbia Water and Light and Boone Electric Cooperative customers to swap their older, less efficient, or broken window air conditioner units for new ones that are more energy efficient. This helps them both to stay cooler and to save money on utility bills. Exchange of old units and pick-up of new units both take place in the VAC office. All of the old air conditioners are disposed of properly and recycled by the City.
