Earlier this year, hundreds of Utahns received rebates for exchanging their water heaters during the inaugural ShowUCAIR Water Heater Rebate program. Due to the program’s initial success, Chevron has donated funding for the program to run again, offering eligible Utah homeowners a rebate to cover 50 percent of the total purchase price, including sales tax and installation of a new, ultra-low NOx water heater, up to $500.
“Chevron is proud to have partnered with UCAIR since its founding. By 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.
Why should I replace my old water heater?
Residential water heaters and furnaces are a significant source of nitrogen oxide (NOx), a gas that contributes to the formation of ozone and fine particulates (PM2.5) that add to Utah’s air quality issues.
“While there are no perfect answers to improving our air, there are simple and practical solutions. Exchanging your standard water heater for an ultra-low NOx water heater is a simple, and now more affordable, solution to reduce water heater NOx emissions by 75 percent,” said UCAIR’s Executive Director Thom Carter.
