ENERGY STAR® Furnace Program
Need to install or replace a furnace in your home? Upgrade to a high efficiency model and let New Mexico Gas Company help you pay for the new furnace.
The cost to heat your home can be significant. Replace your existing furnace with a new ENERGY STAR gas furnace with an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating of 90 percent or greater and take advantage of immediate and long term savings. Depending on the AFUE rating, New Mexico Gas Company offers the following tiered rebate program with increasing rebates for increasing efficiencies.
Install a furnace with a 90 percent AFUE: $200 Rebate
Install a furnace with a 92 percent AFUE: $250 Rebate
Install a furnace with a 95 percent AFUE: $300 Rebate
