Indiana Energy Star Appliance Rebates To Include Heating & Cooling Systems With Rebates Up To $1000!

Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

The Indiana Energy Star Appliance Rebate program will begin February 1, 2010. The program will provide Indiana homeowners with rebates of up to $500.00 when they purchase an Energy Star rated Furnace or Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning (HVAC) system. The rebate could be as high as $1,000.00 if a Geothermal Heat Pump is purchased.

 

 

A total of $6.1 million has been made available to Indiana for the appliance rebate program, which is part of the government appliance rebate program, and is being administered by the Indiana Office of Energy Development (OED).

 

Indiana’s version of the appliance rebate program is expected to give a boost to some Indiana manufacturing companies, including WaterFurnace, the Ft. Wayne company that is the world’s largest manufacturer of Geothermal systems. Many utility companies offer their own rebates for purchasing energy efficient furnaces and HVAC systems. When other rebates exist, the addition of the new Energy Star Appliance Rebate in Indiana will increase the total amount residents could receive for replacing their heating and cooling system. In areas of the state where utility-based rebates are not offered, the Indiana Energy Star Appliance Rebate will stand alone.

 

The Indiana Energy Star appliance program requires appliances have a certain minimum energy efficiency to gain the Energy Star seal. Energy Star has rated a variety of heating and cooling systems, including gas or oil furnaces and boilers, Air Source Heat Pumps and Geothermal Heat Pumps. Rebates for Indiana residents will be based on documentation of the purchase and installation. The program is on a first come, first served basis and will be discontinued when the rebate fund has been exhausted. The program will not be retroactive, so any purchase must be made after January 31, 2010 to be eligible for a rebate. Documentation will also be required showing the unit is Energy Star rated.
