Minnesota Energy Resources' heating system rebates provide incentives for upgrading to a high efficiency natural gas furnace or boiler, installing a programmable or advanced thermostat, or installing an energy efficient gas hearth/fireplace in your existing homes. Not only will you save on your upgraded system, but you'll continue to save with reduced natural gas use year after year. We recommend that you work with a heating dealer of your choice to determine the best system for your home.

These rebates are not intended for new construction. New construction is defined as being built in the last two years. If your home is new construction, visit our New Construction rebate page.

After the qualifying system is installed, work with your contractor to complete and submit the Heating System Rebate Application. Funding is limited and can change at any time. Applications will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. The program application must be received within 60 days of installation.

If you are a nonprofit, new construction organization such as a Community Development Authority, Housing Development Agency, or Habitat for Humanity serving the low-income community, Minnesota Energy Resources you may be eligible for enhanced rebates through the Low Income New Construction Rebates.
