An important source of funding for New Yorkers is disappearing soon. Many homeowners in New York qualify for incentives under the state’s Home Performance with Energy Star program . Incentives range from low-interest loans and cash back to 50% grants for income-qualifying homeowners. Some gas customers of National Grid may also qualify for an additional 10% back—but this National Grid program for high-efficiency furnaces ends September 30. When compounded by the fact that National Grid, like many other utilities around the country, has also announced a major rate increase that will hit as we roll into winter, it’s time to seriously think about moving to a high-efficiency furnace or boiler if you haven’t done so already!
