Water Heater Rebates

Save energy and money when you install a high-efficiency natural gas tank water heater with a 62-64 percent or greater energy factor, or a tankless water heater with an 80 percent or greater energy factor. You'll also get an immediate benefit of a rebate up to $500. Whether you are replacing an existing water heater or installing a new one, a CenterPoint Energy rebate makes that purchase easier on your budget.

Qualifying equipment

Type of natural gas water heater  Energy Factor  Rebate 
Tank (40 gallons or more) .62 or greater EF $75 
Tank (less than 40 gallons) .64 or greater EF $75
Tankless .80 or greater EF $500

Note: Ratings will be determined using the Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) system.

*Energy Factor (EF) is the ratio of useful energy output from the water heater to the total amount of energy delivered to the water heater.

Program basics

Program dates are Jan. 1, 2014 - Dec. 31, 2014. 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.

Three easy steps to receive a rebate

1. Purchase and install qualifying new natural gas equipment at a location with natural gas service from CenterPoint Energy in Arkansas or the Texas communities of Texarkana, Nash, Redwater and Wake Village. Account number must be activated for installation address in order for rebate to be processed.

2. Complete the rebate form with your contactor or installer.

3. Submit the rebate form with a copy of the invoice to:

Water Heater Rebate
CenterPoint Energy
PO Box 59038
Minneapolis, MN 55459-0038

Make sure the invoice includes the date, brand, model number, serial number and applicable efficiency rating. Submit all the paperwork within 90 days of installation or by calendar year end (Dec. 31), whichever comes first.

Some utility rebates are taxable under Internal Revenue Service rules. Customers are responsible for all applicable taxes.

CenterPoint Energy reserves the right to limit any rebate and conduct on-site inspection of installed equipment. All decisions by CenterPoint Energy regarding energy savings, cost savings, rebate amounts and approvals are final. CenterPoint Energy cannot guarantee energy savings and does not warrant rebated equipment.

Allow eight weeks for rebate processing.
