Minnesota Energy Resources' heating system rebates provide incentives to customers who upgrade to a high efficiency natural gas furnace or boiler, install a programmable thermostat, or install an electronic ignition on their gas hearth/fireplace. 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.

Customers who purchase a new home that participated in the Minnesota Energy Resources Home Energy Excellence Program are not eligible for heating system or programmable thermostat rebates under this program. Internet-enabled or learning thermostats are eligible for a rebate.

The Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) will be used to determine the AFUE, EF, and CAE for heating purposes. Please reference all of the rebate requirements prior to installation in order to ensure eligibility.

1AFUE: Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency

2CAE: Combined Annual Efficiency

* Rebate amount is 50% of total improvement cost, up to maximum rebate amount listed above.

This program is pending modification. Some rebates may decrease or be eliminated altogether. All rebate applications must be received by 11/30/2016 to be considered for current rebate structure.

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 or 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.
