Furnace and Boiler Replacement Rebate Program

April 25, 2010


This program is no longer accepting applications as of March 10, 2010. No additional funds are expected. Connecticut’s Furnace Replacement Rebate Program encourages households to replace existing residential furnaces or boilers with more energy-efficient models. The program provides 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 June 30, 2017. Rebates are available for replacement natural gas furnaces or boilers that meet or exceed federal Energy Star standards, and for propane and oil furnaces and boilers that are at least 84% efficient. The amount of the rebate, which depends on household income, decreases as income rises. The program is administered by the Connecticut Office of Policy and Management (OPM). Only natural gas, oil and propane furnaces/boilers installed in existing residential structures containing a maximum of four units are eligible. Rebates are not available for new construction/installation. The rebate amount may not exceed the total cost of the replacement furnace/boiler.
