Another Public Service Announcement to my readers who live in Connecticut…
Have you replaced your Furnace or boiler recently? If it’s in compliance with established guidelines, you may qualify for a $500 rebate.
This information is available on the State of Connecticut Office of Policy & Management website.
Furnace and Boiler Replacement Rebate Program
The Furnace Replacement Rebate Program is an incentive program for Connecticut households to replace their existing residential furnaces or boilers with more energy efficient models. The program is designed to provide rebates of up to $500 to households that purchase and install replacement natural gas, propane or oil furnaces and boilers between July 1, 2007 and July 1, 2017.
Rebates will be available for replacement natural gas furnaces or boilers that meet or exceed Federal Energy Star standards and propane and oil furnaces and boilers that are at least 84% efficient. The amount of the rebate will decrease as your income rises above a certain level. The Office of Policy and Management, authorized by Connecticut General Statutes Section 16a-46e, is responsible for implementing this Furnace Replacement Rebate Program.
The Furnace Replacement Rebate Program has a retroactive start date of July 1, 2007. Furnaces or boilers purchased and installed prior to that date will not qualify for a rebate.
For further information call 1-866-940-4676.
If you reside outside of Connecticut, you may want to check with your state’s Energy or Public Utility website to see if similar programs may be offered.
