2015 Heating System Rebates

Heating system rebates  CenterPoint Energy offers homebuilders great rebates when they purchase and install qualifying high-efficiency heating equipment in the homes they build.

Work with your heating dealer in selecting the heating system that best suits the needs of your homebuyers and helps them not only save energy and money, but also helps reduce their impact on the environment!

*Back-up heating system rebates apply only to new natural gas furnaces used as a back-up system to heat pumps for new construction or natural gas retrofits - not for electric heating retrofits to natural gas. Fuel switching is not eligible.

Note: for rebate to apply, the new equipment must be listed and AFUE verified in the Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) directory.

Program Basics 

Rebates are rewarded on a first-come, first-serve basis until funds are depleted.  Rebate program funds are budgeted on an annual basis.  Rebate amounts and availability are subject to approval by the Arkansas Public Service Commission. 

How the program works

1. Work with your heating dealer to determine the best natural gas heating system for the homes you build on CenterPoint Energy's service lines.  Buy and install a qualifying heating system between January 1 - December 31, 2015.

3. Have your dealer sign the rebate application form.
