Natural Gas Water Heating Rebate

Rebates for High-Efficiency Storage or On-Demand Natural Gas Water Teating Equipment
With efficiencies of up to 85 percent or more, installing high-efficiency natural gas water heating equipment is a smart way for businesses to save gas and cut energy costs. Rebates let you enjoy the energy-saving benefits without paying a premium price.

Upgrade and See Recognizable Energy Savings

When it comes to high-efficiency natural gas water heating equipment, you have two great choices. A high-efficiency domestic storage unit provides better insulation, heat traps and more efficient burners than traditional models. An on-demand (tankless) domestic water heater provides hot water when you need it without the use of a storage tank. Both are capable of reaching thermal efficiencies of 85 percent or more.

With an on-demand, or tankless water heater, the gas burner is activated by the flow of water whenever a hot water faucet is turned on. The water heater delivers a constant supply of hot water until the faucet is turned off. No water is stored, so standby heat losses are low. These water heaters can be installed centrally or at the point of use.

Commercial water heaters can consume a considerable amount of energy, accounting for about 16 percent of the total energy load in food service and health care facilities and more than 30 percent in hotels. Upgrading to a higher-efficiency water heater can result in recognizable energy savings.

The Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund enables you to install high-performance natural gas water heating equipment without a premium price. Rebates for qualifying equipment make it affordable to save energy and improve comfort and performance. Whether you’re replacing old equipment or installing it in new construction, you'll save money up front.
