Natural gas customers, you can upgrade your home’s gas furnace or boiler with an energy-efficient model and get a cash rebate of up to $120 for qualifying furnaces or $100 for qualifying boilers.

Who Qualifies?

You qualify for the furnace or boiler rebate if you:

  • Are a natural gas service residential customer of Xcel Energy, in Colorado.
  • Purchase and install qualifying equipment between May 1, 2014 and April 30, 2015, and complete and submit application by August 31, 2015.

You qualify for the Electronically Commutated Motor (ECM) rebate if you:

  • Are an electric service residential customer of Xcel Energy in Colorado
  • Purchase and install qualifying equipment between May 1, 2014 and April 30, 2015, and complete and submit application by August 31, 2015.

Even if you qualify, do you need a new furnace or boiler?

  • Consider starting with a Home Energy Audit to see if upgrading your furnace or boiler is right for you.
  • A heating contractor can help you determine if you need a new furnace or boiler and help you determine the right size for your home.
  • It’s not just about efficiency. It's also about finding out if your heating system is safe, which an auditor or contractor can assess.

How to Get Started

  1. Choose a registered Heating contractor. Beginning May 1, 2014, contractors must have at least one NATE Gas Heating certified technician to be registered contractor.
  2. Purchase and install a new, qualifying furnace or boiler between May 1, 2014, and April 30, 2015.
  3. Get your 2014 Heating System Rebate application from your registered contractor.
  4. Complete and mail the completed application, invoice, and proof of ECM (if applicable) by August 31, 2015 (include your dated invoice).

It takes at least six weeks to receive a rebate check. There is no limit to the number of rebates per home. If you install two furnaces, you must submit two applications.

Qualifying Equipment

Only furnace and boiler equipment listed on the Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) website (residential section) is eligible for rebate. Efficiency ratings are from AHRI. If an ECM is included, please include the manufacturer information sheet as proof that the furnace includes an ECM.
