Rebates for Efficiency Improvements

Rebates may be available for your energy efficiency projects.  These may be in the form of tax credits from state or local governments (check with your tax professional for the latest information); they may be from local utilities; or they may be from quasi-governmental agencies set up to promote energy efficiency.  Among the current rebates are these:

  1. $400 Instant Rebate from Efficiency Vermont and Burlington Electric Department on Rheem heat pump water heatersQualifying Vermont residents can now purchase a Rheem heat pump water heater (HPWH) for virtually the same price as a standard heater, and you’ll save up to half the cost of running a standard electric or propane heater.  If your current heater is approaching ten years of age, it makes sense to replace the heater now, before you have a failure that could potentially damage your home.  Payback on your investment could take as few as 3 years.   The Rheem HPWH is a 50 gallon model, and there are certain installation criteria you must adhere to.  Ask your contractor for a Rheem HB50, the brand professionals prefer.  The Rheem HB50 is available from any Blodgett branch.  Contact us if you need the name of a qualified installer in your area.
  1. Instant Rebate from Efficiency Vermont and Burlington Electric Department on Circulator Pumps!  If you have “hydronic” heat (radiant or baseboard) chances are you have at least one, and probably more “circulator pumps” in your home.  Each of those older style pumps is silently running up your electric bill.  Thanks to an Instant Rebate from Efficiency Vermont, your contractor can replace those energy hogs with a Grundfos Alpha pump for the same price as an old style circulator,  and you’ll save up to 50% on the cost of operating each pump you replace.  Vermont installations only, for home or residential installations.  Contact us if you need the name of a qualified installer in your area.
