Just like cars, heating systems that are regularly maintained will run more efficiently and last longer. The boiler tune-up rebate helps ensure your gas fired boiler is operating at maximum efficiency and can help you avoid expensive repairs.

Minnesota Energy Resources offers rebates from $250-$500 when a professional heating service technician performs a gas fire boiler tune-up that includes the following nine services:

  • Measure tune-up combustion efficiency using an electronic flue gas analyzer. Combustion analyzer test results to be provided when applying.
  • Adjust air flow and reduce excessive stack temperatures
  • Adjust burner and gas input, manual or motorized draft control
  • Clean burners, combustion chamber and heat exchanger surface, when weather or operating schedule permits.
  • Clean and inspect burner nozzles.
  • Check for proper venting.
  • Complete visual inspection of system piping and installation.
  • Check safety controls.
  • Check adequacy of combustion air intake.

After the qualifying system is tuned-up, work with your HVAC technician to complete and submit the commercial boiler tune-up rebate application.
