Who Qualifies?

You qualify if you:

  • Are a natural gas customer of Xcel Energy and live in Colorado.
  • Purchase and install the equipment between Jan 1, 2013 and April 30, 2014 (92% AFUE furnace - $80 rebate, 94%+ AFUE furnace - $120 rebate, 85% AFUE boiler - $100 rebate), complete and submit application by July 31, 2014, for 2013 applications.
  • Purchase and install equipment between May 1, 2014 and April 30, 2015, complete and submit application by July 31, 2015, for 2014 applications.

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.
