UCAIR and Chevron Corporation are once again teaming to provide rebates of up to $500 to Utah homeowners in non-attainment* areas to replace their existing, standard water heater with an air quality-efficient ultra-low NOx (ULN) natural gas water heater.
“Chevron is proud to have partnered with UCAIR since its founding. In connecting citizens, government, business and nonprofits, UCAIR brings practical action to air quality, an issue of critical importance for Utah. We are excited to once again support this initiative,” said Mitra Kasanschi, general manager of Chevron’s Salt Lake Refinery.
Earlier this year, hundreds of Utahns received rebates for exchanging their water heaters during the inaugural water heater exchange. Based on this success, Chevron donated funding for a second ShowUCAIR water heater exchange.
“Air quality remains a top health and quality of life issue in our state,” said Thom Carter, UCAIR executive director. “While there are no perfect answers to improving our air, there are simple and practical solutions and exchanging your standard water heater to an ultra low NOx water heater is a simple, and now more affordable, solution to reduce water heater NOx emissions by 75%.”
Rebates provided as part of this program will cover 50 percent of the total purchase price, including sales tax and installation costs, of an ULN water heater up to $500. Program details and rebate applications available at UCAIR.org/waterheater. – Only natural gas, ultra low NOx water heaters purchased after February 26, 2019 are eligible. – Limit of one rebate per household. – Applicants must be the owner of the home, which is a primary, private residence not used for commercial or other rental purposes. – New construction homes are not eligible. – Water heaters must be professionally installed. Water heaters installed by the home owner/purchaser are ineligible.
