Any homeowners who have been thinking about upgrading their home appliances should make the decision to do so—starting in March. As a part of the Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, each state has been given funds to rebate homeowners for their participation in purchasing Energy Star home appliances.
Colorado has been granted $4.7 million for this project to rebate back to any homeowners who participate in the program. The program is tentatively set to begin in March—so hold off on any appliance purchases until then.
Eligible appliance upgrades include:
- Gas storage water heaters
- Gas tankless water heaters
- Gas furnaces
- Gas boilers

The program does not include retroactive purchases, so be sure to wait for the launch of the program before you purchase any new appliances. Similarly, not all appliances qualify. The Governor’s Energy Office web site has more information for program participants. The program will be continued on until the funds are exhausted—so don’t wait too long to get started on renovation projects!
