2015 Water heater rebates
Save Energy and Money with a high efficiency natural gas water heater


 Water Heater Rebate

After home heating, hot water is the second largest user of heating energy in your home – accounting for 15 percent of your total energy use.

Replacing your water heater when you upgrade your heating system, or before it leaks, will save you time and money. Ask your dealer, plumber or retailer for a natural gas water heater that will qualify for a rebate and fit your household needs.
