Rebates are processed in the order in which they are received and can take up to 4 to 6 weeks for processing. To check your rebate status, call EFI (our rebate fulfillment contractor) at 877.313.8799.

Please submit a separate rebate application for every rebate that you qualify for. For example, if you switch to natural gas from an alternate fuel source, and install a natural gas furnace AFUE ≥ 94 with ECM, you would be eligible for a statewide conversion rebate and an energy efficiency rebate.

Not sure which heating equipment you have?

Boiler - Hot water or steam generated from a boiler is circulated throughout the house through pipes to radiators, baseboard radiators, or radiant floor systems.

Furnace - Heats air and uses a blower motor to distribute the heated air throughout the house through ducts, to vents or registers in the walls, floors or ceilings of each room. Furnaces are also called forced hot air systems.

Note: In most cases it makes sense to choose the same type of boiler or furnace system you currently use to heat your home. That way you will only need to switch the heating unit, and NOT the existing baseboard or ductwork.
