High Efficiency Furnace, Natural Gas Boiler* and Boiler Circulator Pump Instant Discount Program

 

January 1, 2017

Dear Customers and Program Partners,

Due to the extreme popularity of our ratepayer funded Energy Efficiency programs, The Southern Connecticut Gas Company (SCG) is currently experiencing strong demand for its residential programs. As a result of this overwhelming popularity, the SCG budgets for these programs are severely constrained and as of January 1, 2017, SCG will not offer incentives for natural gas boilers and natural gas water heaters for installations in the SCG territory. There will be an $800 natural gas furnace instant discount available for qualified high efficiency natural gas furnace purchases made for SCG service territory natural gas customers

We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause. We look forward to resuming program activity at such time that additional funding becomes available.

Please be advised that this does not apply to CNG customers.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Respectfully,

Marissa Westbrook
Manager, Residential Energy Services

$75 - $800 instant discount!

Reduce your home heating costs with a high-efficiency furnace or natural gas boiler*. You’ll enjoy clean, reliable heat and receive an instant discount of up to $800 when you install a qualifying natural gas, oil or propane furnace or a boiler circulator pump.

 

Achieve efficiencies as high as 97 percent!

 

In most homes, heating is the single biggest energy expense. Replacing your old furnace, boiler* or boiler circulator pump with new high-efficiency heating equipment can take a bite out of your energy costs, plus make your home more comfortable. Older furnace and boiler systems have efficiencies in the range of 56 to 70 percent. High-efficiency heating systems achieve efficiencies as high as 97 percent, converting nearly all the fuel to useful heat for your home. That can mean big savings!

 

Before you invest in a new furnace, boiler, or boiler circulator pump, make your home as energy efficient as possible. Improving insulation and sealing air leaks to stop heat loss may allow you to purchase a smaller, less expensive heating system. Our Home Energy Solutions program can help you identify and make energy-saving improvements that are right for your home.

 

To Receive Your Instant Discount**:

  • Prior to purchase, confirm your system qualifies for the discount with your HVAC contractor or by checking the minimum efficiency chart below and at the ENERGY STAR website: www.ENERGYSTAR.gov/products.
  • Have your licensed contractor provide a quote for qualified equipment from an EnergizeCT.com listed participating distributor that includes the instant discount.
  • Finally have your licensed contractor purchase and install qualified equipment from a participating distributor. It’s that easy!

Instant discounts are valid for The United Illuminating Company, Eversource, Connecticut Natural Gas Corporation, or The Southern Connecticut Gas Company residential customers who purchase and install* a qualifying:

  • Natural gas, oil or propane furnace
  • Boiler circulator pump

*SCG has no funding for natural gas boilers through December 31, 2017.
 

**Qualifying equipment must be installed between January 1, 2017 and December 31, 2017. Multiple discounts for the same unit (equipment serial number) will not be accepted.
