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

$450 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 $450 rebate for energy efficient heat pump water heaters.

Heat pump water heaters work like a refrigerator but in reverse.
