There’s still time for you to take advantage of this great rebate program, which provides a rebate for a qualifying Boston boiler replacement. The rebate program is offered through Gas Networks and can put as much as $3,500 back in your pocket!
Now through July 31, 2012, if you have a boiler that’s at least 30 years old, you can get a rebate of $3,500 on a new gas, forced hot-water boiler or $1,900 on a steam boiler if you replace the system. Homeowners are required to complete home energy assessment through MassSaves as part of the qualifying process.
Summertime is the ideal time to consider a boiler replacement. Homeowners can consider all of their options without the pressure of having to make a snap decision in the middle of the winter, or having to make expensive, emergency repairs to an old boiler that really should be replaced.
One of the catches to the program is that the boiler being replaced must be operational at the time of replacement. It’s hard for some homeowners to justify the cost of replacing a boiler when the one they have still works. But keep in mind that new boilers are more efficient and cost less to operate, and take up less space than the 30-year-old models do. You can also assure yourself that a new boiler will get you all the way through the coming winter without expensive boiler repairs or maintenance work.
The home energy assessment must be completed no later than July 31 to qualify for the rebate. If you’re considering replacing your boiler, or would like more information about this great rebate program, contact us at Boston Standard Plumbing & Heating at (617) 288-2911 for a consultation. We’ll come to your home, perform your home energy assessment and make sure you qualify for the program rebates.
