Oilheat Equipment Rebates Are Yours to Claim

Rebates

While Mainers from Cornish to Calais are shedding their winter layers and looking forward to lobster bakes, it’s a great time to look into upgrading your home’s oilheat system and storage tank.

With a new equipment rebate available thanks to the Maine Energy Marketers Association–with support from the National Oilheat Research Alliance (NORA)–Maine homeowners who qualify can save up to $500 when they install a new high-efficiency home oilheat system and a new aboveground heating oil tank.

This rebate program has limited funds, so don’t snooze because you may lose when it comes to getting your rebate!

What’s in it for you?

The Maine Energy Marketers Association rebate program gives Maine homeowners like you not only ways to earn a rebate, but to also get the benefits of high-efficiency oilheat equipment. Here’s what’s offered:

  • Receive a $300 rebate for buying and installing a high-efficiency oilheat home heating system that is a greater efficiency than the one you now have in your home
  • Receive a $200 rebate when you buy and install a new above-ground heating oil storage tank
  • Purchase both, and receive both rebates whether you buy them at the same time or separately

The rebates are only the start of how you’ll benefit. In recent years, there have been so many improvements and advances in oilheat equipment. Today’s systems are not only more energy efficient, they’re more compact, saving you valuable space. But they’ll still keep your house affordably warm.

In terms of your storage tank, this can last many years. But it will eventually need to be replaced. While many oil tanks that are failing look okay on the outside, the damage is being done to the tank by corrosion happening from the inside of your tank out.

Upgrade to a new above-ground tank and avoid this worry. Heating oil tanks have greatly improved, with an outer wall of corrosion-resistant galvanized steel, leak detection systems, and updated design that allow tanks to fit in smaller, and even oddly-shaped, spaces.
