National Fuel offers pre-qualified equipment rebates for the installation of certain energy efficiency measures to residential customers in Western New York. Incentives from $25 to $400 are available for furnaces; steam and hot water boilers; storage and tankless water heaters; and programmable thermostats that meet the program's minimum efficiency requirements. In order to be eligible for a rebate, equipment must be installed in a western New York residence on or after January 1, 2013 and be fueled by natural gas. Rebate amounts may not exceed the purchase price.

All measures must be installed by a licensed contractor. New construction is not eligible for rebates. Low-income customers may be eligible for free weatherization assistance, and National Fuel also offers energy efficiency incentives for small non-residential customers through the NYSERDA Existing Facilities Program.
