    Hello Florence –

    Based on the work you’ve done, I would say you definitely qualify for a rebate. However, you would have needed to do a pre-renovation home energy audit.

    Please see information on the ecoENERGY Home Retrofit program.

    We replaced our electric heating system with a high efficiency propane furnace, do we qualify for the rebate even though our licensed contractor is not a member of the program?

    We had our new furnace and air conditioner installed weeks ago and have since sent in our paper work. Our paper work was approved on April 21st, 2011. We were to receive our rebate within six weeks. Now I’ve called and am told due to back logs I am not to expect it less than 12 weeks from the approval date. Has anyone else been lied to about the amount of time to receive the rebate? Also, i read above that a themostate qualifies for $50.00 but was told by by installer that it does not.
