Refrigerator & Freezer Recycling

$50 + Free Pickup

We'll pick up and recycle your old refrigerator or freezer.

Free pickup + $50 back!

Central Hudson can help lower your monthly energy bills -- and pay you to do it! We'll give you $50 to recycle your old, working refrigerator or freezer. We'll even pick it up, free of charge, and properly recycle it. While that old appliance in the basement or garage may provide more storage, it also costs you up to $100-per-year on your energy bill.

Heat Pump
Water Heaters

Up to $750 Rebate

And save an estimated $325 per year off your energy bill!

Hot water and HUGE savings

Is your water heater unreliable or costly to operate? Central Hudson has a rebate for up to $750 on energy efficient heat pump water heaters. Heat pump water heaters (sometimes called hybrid water heaters) run on electric power but use different technology than standard electric water heaters. Heat pump water heaters work like a refrigerator but in reverse.

Central Air-Source Heat Pumps

Up to $300 Rebate

Cools like AC and also heats your home in spring and fall.

Device efficiently heats, cools!

Central air-source heat pumps are similar to central AC systems in that they cool your house throughout the summer. The added bonus is that they can work in reverse and heat your home during the spring and fall!

Natural Gas

Up to $1,000 Rebate

Upgrade to a new energy efficient unit.

Rebate up to $1,000!

We're offering a rebate of $1,000 on a new, efficient natural gas water boiler, or up to $450 on a natural gas furnace or $250 for steam boilers.

Other rebates:
Indirect water heaters: $250
If you are installing a new natural gas boiler, you can include an indirect water heater and receive a $250 rebate instead of using a separate water heater.
