Funding is currently limited and soon will be exhausted for oil, propane and municipal electric customers who wish to participate in the WARMAdvantage and COOLAdvantage Programs.

Hurricane Sandy Relief

New Jersey's Clean Energy Program has enhanced incentives for residents recovering from Hurricane Sandy.  If your home is located in a zip code designated as a "major" or "minor" damaged area impacted by Hurricane Sandy, you may be eligible for an additional $200 per unit depending on the date you purchased the water heater.

Customers seeking the enhanced incentive should submit the appropriate application (below), and also include a Homeowner Certification Form.  If your home is located outside the eligible zip code list, you may also qualify for the additional $200 per unit by demonstrating that you have experienced damage caused by Hurricane Sandy (to be reviewed on a case by case basis).  Full Hurricane Sandy Relief information can be found here and we also offer frequently asked questions.

IMPORTANT:  If you have already submitted an application, you only need to submit a Homeowner Certification Form.  However, new submissions require both an application form (below) AND a Homeowner Certification Form.

Explanation of Heat Pump Water Heaters

Heat pump water heaters use electricity to move heat from one place to another instead of generating heat directly.

To understand the concept of heat pumps, imagine a refrigerator working in reverse. While a refrigerator removes heat from an enclosed box and expels that heat to the surrounding air, a HPWH takes the heat from surrounding air and transfers it to water in an enclosed tank.

A low-pressure liquid refrigerant is vaporized in the heat pump's evaporator and passed into the compressor. As the pressure of the refrigerant increases, so does its temperature. The heated refrigerant runs through a condenser coil within the storage tank, transferring heat to the water stored there. As the refrigerant delivers its heat to the water, it cools and condenses, and then passes through an expansion valve where the pressure is reduced and the cycle starts over. 

By heating water only when it's needed, ENERGY STAR certified gas tankless water heaters cut water heating expenses, while lso providing continuous hot water delivery. Gas tankless models are a great choice for new construction and major remodeling, but are also becoming popular as a replacement for gas storage water heaters.

Additional Opportunities to Save

If you qualify for the WARMAdvantage rebate, you may be eligible for an extra rebate from your gas company. Check their websites below for applications and information.

Also, consider getting a home energy assessment from Home Performance with ENERGY STAR to help you save even more and improve the comfort, safety, and durability of your home.
