Benefits and Advantages of the New HEEHRA Rebate Program

There are quite a few benefits and advantages to the new HEEHRA Rebate Program being offered to low to moderate income households. From saving money to helping reduce your environmental footprint, this rebate program can benefit your home, wallet, and environment in the following ways:

  • Decreased Energy Bills:  By switching from an electric furnace and water heater to an energy-efficient heat pump system that is covered under HEEHRA, households can save on average $500 a year on monthly utility bills. Not only are you saving money with the rebate, but you can also save money on your monthly energy bills as well, helping you save money all around!
  • Upgrades for Low to Moderate Income Households:  Most low-income to moderate-income households are unfortunately prone to outdated, energy-inefficient HVAC and water heating systems. This causes higher monthly utility bills and frequent costly repairs and replacements that can be hard for these low- to moderate-income level households to afford. Thanks to the new HEEHRA rebate program, these households will now be able to afford installing new, higher energy efficient appliances that will allow them to have more reliable systems as well as save a significant amount of money on energy bills and repairs.
  • Promotes Jobs and Economic Growth:  According to the Bluegreen Alliance, the new HEEHRA rebate act will help to create over 170,000 jobs in the United States, as well as the Inflation Reduction Act overall aiding in over 400,000 jobs over the next ten years. This contribution should help economic growth and a reduction of inflation in the U.S. economy. 
  • Reduced Carbon Emissions:  The U.S. Department of Energy states that HVAC systems and water heaters consist of 46% of residential building carbon emissions. According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, replacing these natural gas heaters with electric heat pump systems could help to decrease carbon emissions anywhere from 46% to 54%! Additionally, switching from natural gas to electric water heaters could help to reduce carbon emissions by 50% to 70%!

Air Quality Improvements:  Electric appliances such as furnaces and gas stoves can help improve indoor and outdoor air quality for low income communities. These households typically have outdated appliances in their homes coupled with smaller square footage in comparison to higher income households. Utilizing the HEEHRA rebate program can help contribute to an improvement in air quality for these lower income households.
