Natural gas commercial customers are eligible for incentives for high-efficiency boilers, furnaces, and controls. Installing a high-efficiency system can reduce your business’s energy costs and ongoing operating expenses, leaving you more money to grow your business. If you’re starting a new business, switching to natural gas, or your current natural gas equipment is old or inefficient, it’s the right time for you to consider installing a high-efficiency unit.
