New Furnace Rebate Program

The new Connecticut Furnace Rebate Program can provide rebates of up to $500 for homeowners who replace their furnaces with more efficient models. 

The program applies to homes and apartment buildings with four units or less. Replacement furnaces fueled by natural gas must be Energy Star-rated, while oil and propane equipment must be at least 84 percent efficient. The amount of the rebate varies depending on the income of the homeowner.  An application form for the furnace rebate program is available here or at: http://www.ct.gov/opm/cwp/view.asp?a=2994&q=420476&opmNav_GID=1808

The furnace rebate hotline at 1-866-940-4676 can also put residents in touch with the program. Persons who leave their name, mailing address and phone number will be mailed program application materials.
