High Efficiency Natural Gas Hot Water Rebates

Go Tankless and Save

Say goodbye to your tank water heater. Install an ENERGY STAR®-certified high-efficiency natural gas-fired tankless water heater and enjoy hot water on demand, energy savings and a rebate up to $500. You’ll never have to worry about running out of hot water again.

Trim your water heating costs up to 30 percent!

You don't use hot water 24 hours a day. Yet a standard tank-type water heater consumes energy around the clock to keep the water in its tank hot. ENERGY STAR-certified natural gas tankless water heaters give you hot water when you need it, without an energy-consuming storage tank. Using a tankless water heater can trim your water heating costs up to 30 percent. You’ll also enjoy these benefits:

  • Continuous hot water – Tankless water heaters provide a continuous flow of hot water, on demand. That means you don’t have to suffer through a cold shower if you're the last one in line. Unlike a conventional tank-type water heater, hot water is always there when you need it.
     
  • Space-saving design – A qualified tankless model saves you an extra closet's worth of space compared to a tank-type water heater. Gas tankless water heaters are small and wall-mounted, unlike bulky tank-type water heaters.
     
  • Fewer worries – Tankless water heaters typically last 20 years, much longer than any conventional tank-type water heater. And because it’s tankless, you don’t have to worry about tank leaks and water damage.

Going tankless is more affordable with a rebate up to $500*. It’s available if you install an ENERGY STAR-certified tankless natural gas water heater with electric ignition. Whether you’re replacing an old water heater or installing one in a new home, you'll save money up front.

ENERGY STAR is a widely recognized and trusted label on products that meet strict energy efficiency requirements set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy. By using less energy, these products also help reduce greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change. Learn more at the ENERGY STAR website.

Looking for a more conventional hot water heater? We also have a $100 rebate for ENERGY STAR-certified Standalone Storage Tank gas water heaters. These high efficiency models have better insulation, heat traps, and more efficient burners than standard models. Improvements that have a modest impact on price but increase efficiency by about 7.5%.
