GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - As winter approaches many of us are turning up the heat in our homes, which means a costly utility bill. There are a number of things that you can do to keep that Xcel bill low and still keep your home warm.
Xcel Energy has a number of rebates that will help pay you back for some the cost of installing energy efficient equipment in your home, plus it will help keep your energy bills low.
Heating rebates will pay you back up to a $120 for replacing that old furnace or boiler with a new energy efficient one or anywhere from $50 to $500 for installing a new qualified air source heat pump.
There are also rebates available for buying new qualified natural gas water heaters, with rebates range from $40 to $100.
Keeping that heat trapped in your home just got a little cheaper, with the insulation rebate, which will pay you back 20% of the total cost of insulation, up to $300.
Each of these rebates has different deadline dates and requires you to fill out a rebate application to get the money. Click the link below for more information.
