Who Qualifies?

You qualify if you:

  • Are a natural gas customer of Xcel Energy and live in Colorado.
  • Purchase and install the equipment in 2013.
  • Submit a complete application by July 31, 2014.

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.
Note: 2013 rebates are available until further notice. Rebate applications must be postmarked by July 31, 2014.

How to Get Started

  1. Purchase and install a new, qualifying furnace or boiler between January 1, 2013, and December 31, 2013.
  2. Get your 2013 Heating System Rebate application from your contractor or download the rebate application.
  3. Complete and mail the application by July 31, 2014 (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 equipment listed on the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) website (residential section) is eligible for rebate. Efficiency ratings are from AHRI.

A representative from Nexant may follow up with you to confirm that your home’s energy efficiency improvements have been made.

Xcel Energy is proposing in its 2014 DSM plan to eliminate rebates for residential furnaces less than 96% AFUE (efficiency), due to reduced cost-effectiveness and low gas commodity prices. Pending approval by the PUC, this change may go into effect as early as March 15, 2014. $120 rebates for furnaces 96% AFUE (efficiency) and higher, and $100 rebates for residential boilers 85% AFUE and higher, would remain in place in 2014.

Qualifying 2013 Residential Heating Systems projects – 92% AFUE ($80 rebate) and 94% AFUE ($120 rebate) furnaces – must be purchased and installed between January 1, 2013, and the effective date of the 2014 DSM Plan (approximately March 15, 2014). Rebate applications must be POSTMARKED by July 31, 2014, for the account holder to be eligible for a rebate.
