From NW Natural
For homeowners thinking of investing in a tankless water heater, it’s time to turn that idea into action. From now until August 31, 2010, NW Natural customers can receive more than $2,200 in incentives toward a purchase that provides endless hot water, saves them money and is environmentally friendly.
NW Natural customer Jim Shores of Forest Grove made the purchase and couldn’t be happier. Jim’s wife, Amy, loves to take long showers so Jim researched natural gas tankless water heaters and settled on a Rinnai.
“Energy efficiency never felt so good,” said Shores. “It’s a great investment, good savings, and we’ve upgraded the value of our home.”
NW Natural has teamed up with Rinnai and Energy Trust of Oregon to offer NW Natural customers in Oregon and Washington up to $2,240 back with the installation of a Rinnai tankless water heater. The following are the incentives and tax credits for changing a tanked water heater to a Rinnai tankless water heater:
- $200 gas credit on their NW Natural account, courtesy of a participating Rinnai dealer;
- $200 cash rebate from Energy Trust of Oregon for installation of a tankless water heater with Energy Factor of 0.80 or greater;
- Up to $340 Oregon tax credit (25% of installation and equipment costs), with installation of a tankless water heater with an Energy Factor of 0.80 or greater (OR customers only);
- Up to $1,500 federal tax credit for installation of a tankless water heater with Energy Factor of 0.82 or greater.
Relax, it’s a Rinnai
With Rinnai tankless water heaters, there’s no tank to leak or break, thus reducing the risk of flooding. Plus, Rinnai offers a line of controllers that make it easy to set water temperatures precisely for multiple locations in the home to ensure comfort and prevent scalding accidents. Rinnai tankless water heaters heat water on demand, so users aren’t limited to a fixed preheated supply as with a tank.
With up to $2,240 back in gas credits, rebates and tax credits, and the lowest natural gas prices in five years, enjoying a Rinnai natural gas tankless water heater is really affordable. Customers can enjoy hot water when they want it, for as long as they need it, so taking showers, washing dishes and doing laundry can be done all at the same time.
