Heating Appliance Incentives Available for Construction Pros and their Customers Ahead of Winter
The Propane Education & Research Council is reminding construction professionals to use the considerable number of propane-powered heating appliance incentives available from a variety of sources before the temperatures drop and customers begin calling.
“There is an abundance of incentives available for propane water- and space-heating appliances, which keep customers happy for longer because they provide superior comfort, are more efficient, and perform better than other energy appliances,” said Jesse Marcus, PERC director of residential and commercial business development. “While some incentives are only offered to homeowners – and don’t directly benefit the builder or remodeler – knowing what is available for their customers is critical to being an expert partner who can help them get the full savings benefit available. Other incentives directly benefit the builder or remodeler to help them maximize the return on each installation.”
For homeowners, Rinnai has three new rebates that are available through the end of the year. The manufacturer is offering $50 to $100 rebates on various propane-powered tankless water heaters, wall furnaces, condensing boilers, and hybrid water heating systems.
Additionally, some states and localities provide tax credits, rebates, grants, and other incentives to customers who choose propane. Many are listed on the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency, while safe installation rebates are also widely available and can provide additional savings to many propane-powered appliance purchases.
For larger, whole-home projects that may begin this winter, the Propane Council has incentives available for builders and remodelers. The Propane Construction Incentive Program offers installers the option to incorporate three or more qualifying propane applications into projects during 2018 to be eligible for an incentive between $500 and $1,500, per home.
