California Will Give You $50.00 For This!

Have an old washing machine like this one sitting around waiting to be picked up?  Planning on purchasing a new one for your home?

The Cash for Appliances program begins on April 22, 2010 (Earth Day) in California and would be a great time for you to get it done!

As a Platinum Partner with the program, Feder’s Distributors will be happy to pick up your old washing machine when we deliver your new one, haul it away and recycle it for you at no extra charge!  We’ll give you a receipt for proof of recycling, along with all the forms that need to be filled out so you can receive a $50 check from the state.

As you probably already know, California received $35.2 million to educate and give incentives to California consumers when they purchase brand-new energy star qualified washers, refrigerators, and room air conditioners.

If you plan to purchase any of these products, now would be the time to get a move on!

In addition to receiving $50.00 for your old washing machine, you can also earn $200.00 for your old refrigerator, and $50.00 for your old room air conditioner.  But not only that, you can still qualify for any additional manufacturer rebates as well as any additional utility company rebates!  Virtually making your new energy star qualified appliance close to free!

For example, when you turn in your old washing machine (like the one that’s more than 30 years old in the pictures above), and purchase a new one, you’ll receive a $50.00 check!

If you plan on purchasing a new energy star qualified refrigerator from Whirlpool, for example, you’ll not only receive $200.00 from the state just for turning your old refrigerator in, an additional $65.00 from your utility company (like DWP) and an additional $35.00 from DWP just for recycling your old refrigerator is also available.  Also, if Whirlpool has additional rebates for purchasing said energy star model, you’ll be eligible to receive that as well!

If you turn in your old room air conditioner, not only will you receive the $50 from California for the Cash for Appliances program, but you could also receive an additional $50 from your local utility company!

The best part? You’ll be helping keep your environment cleaner an use a much small percentage of energy than your old washer, refrigerator, or air conditioner!

We hope to see you on April 22, because the funds may run out soon (as they did in two days for many of the states who implemented the program months ago!).

Please contact us if you have any questions about this or any other program!

Cash For Appliances Program Finally Getting Close To Reality

It looks like details are finally being ironed out in the new Cash-For-appliances program slated to begin a few months ago.

Yesterday, it was announced that New York state would begin their program in February, 2010 and several other states would follow suit during March and April.  California’s program should begin in March,

Authorized by the U.S. Economic Stimulus Legislation earlier this year, states would receive monies from a $300 million package to turn in older appliances (namely clothes washers, dishwashers, central and air conditioners, refrigerators, and heat pumps).

Consumers can apply for up to $150 in rebates when they purchase energy star and other energy-efficient appliances.

Please contact Feder’s Distributors for more information about the program or energy star appliances and air conditioners!

How To Work Your Window Air Conditioner — A Guide For Tenants [English & Spanish]

Operating Window/Wall Air Conditioners

Window and wall air conditioners are not the same as central air conditioners. To ensure you get the best performance from your A/C, we advise that you turn it on in the morning.

Your A/C has a thermostat that will detect the temperature in the room. When the unit reaches the temperature you set it to, it will shut off. When the room gets warmer the thermostat will detect that change and will turn on by itself.

The vent should be closed at all times and should only be open when using the fan mode, to bring in outside air. Having your vent open while operating the A/C will make your unit work harder and it will cost you more money to run.

When turning on your A/C, make sure you set it to 76 degrees and no lower than 72. This will not only will save you money, but it will allow your A/C to work properly.

Check your filter every other week for better performance. If you turn your A/C on when the day’s heat is at its peak, it will take time to get the desired cooling effect, and will use much more energy.

Following these easy instructions will save you money, and better performance from your A/C.

Como operar su aire de ventana o pared

Los Aires de ventana o pared no son iguales a los centrales. Para asegurarse de que su Aire acondicionado este funcionando bien, le recomendamos que lo use de la siguiente manera. Encienda su aire por la mañana y pongalo entre 76 y no menos de 72 grados. Su aire tiene un termostato que detecta la temperatura que usted a elejido, y cuando llegue a esa temperatura el aire se apagara solo. Cuando el termostato detecte que la temperatura este subiendo el compressor se volvera a encender. El vent del aire siempre tiene que estar cerrado y solo debe de abrirse cuando lo use en la posicion FAN. Tambien es recommendable limpiar el filtro al aire 2 veces por mes, si es usado constantemete. Recuerde que encender su aire, cuando el calor del dia esta en su apogeo no es recomendado, porque el aire tardara mas en enfriar su departamento Si usted sigue estas simples instrucciones su aire le ahorrara dinero y funcionara mejor.

Cash For Clunkers is Done, Now How About Cash For Appliances?

Now that the cash-for-clunkers auto program is over, the government has set aside more than 300 million dollars for appliance rebates.

When consumers turn in old appliances and purchase new, energy-efficient appliances they are eligible for $50-$200 in rebates.

Feder’s Distributors has a huge selection of Energy Star appliances and air conditioners in-stock that can be delivered or picked-up within one business day.  If it isn’t in-stock, we can usually get it within a day or two for delivery within two or three business days.

Please contact one of our well-versed associates for more information on this “Cash-For-Appliances” program!


Last month, we helped countless managers and management companies get rid of the frustration of purchasing major kitchen appliances and air conditioners! We’d like to help you do the same.

Call us and find out why more multifamily property managers, owners, builders and contractors are buying appliances and air conditioners from Feder’s Distributors. We make you our top priority. Our customer service, experience, expertise and pricing make us the best in the industry today.





Our family-owned business was founded more than 40 years ago and still remains in the same location today. We have grown to be the leader in sales, distribution and installation of appliances and air conditioners within Southern California.

As always, Feder’s Distributors will beat any printed price and make sure you are 100% satisfied!

Feder’s Distributors Sales Up in a Down Economy!

As 2008 comes to a close, I can look back in amazement at what a year it was for business. Gratefully, our overall business was up over the previous year, but I still feel for those other businesses that suffered greatly. With layoffs, the recession, store closures, and government bailouts, I feel so grateful for what our sales team, deliverymen, warehousemen, installers, and office personnel have accomplished this past year. As sales in our industry ended down about 20-35% overall, I am thankful to report an incredible 17% INCREASE in sales over 2007 for Feder’s Kitchen Appliance and Air Conditioner Distributors!

How did it happen? Well, first and foremost, we had a plan. At the end of 2007, we met and discussed the upcoming year and specifically decided what to focus on. What changes needed to be made, product lines that needed to be dropped, and what we wanted to start selling. We looked at the bulk of our business and decided where we could pick up more business and tried to alleviate what may not have been working.

Next, we decided to focus even more on our customers than in the past. We made a dedicated effort to say thank you as often as possible, using a simple thank you card and other promotions. Next to the Feder’s team, our customers are the most important asset we have. We listened to feedback after all of their purchases and tried to implement our 100% satisfaction guarantee.

We also focused our business on a small niche that give us the expertise where our customers feel comfortable purchasing from us after we give our insight and opinions. We are not only experts in the multi-family management, investor, and builder market, but we have been selling air conditioners and appliances for more than 42 years! In addition, we are not afraid to tell a customer that we can not help them in certain situations. I like to say that we don’t know what we don’t know and that if a customer feels we are making up an answer to a question is a bigger flaw than telling them that we can’t help, or don’t in fact know the answer.

We’ve recently completed our plan for 2009, and with the help of our amazing team and incredible customers, we hope next year will be the best one yet!

Here’s wishing you, your families, and all those you care about the best 2009 has to offer. Happy holidays and Happy New Year!

Gratefully yours,

The Feder Family
