    Why on earth are you promoting replacing a gas furnace with an upgraded gas furnace? You should be promoting high efficiency air-source or ground-source heat pumps.

    Have you read the County Climate Action Plan? It calls for eliminating all green house gas emissions by 2035. You should be prohibiting the installation of gas furnaces in all new homes immediately and requiring gas furnaces in existing homes to be replaced by 2030.

    Customers will not be happy if, after ‘upgrading’ to a high-efficiency gas furnace, they find out they should have installed a high-efficiency heat pump instead.

      Unfortunately not everyone has the money, time, or means to replace their gas furnace with high efficiency air-source or ground-source heat pumps. Right now, all gas customers pay EmPOWER Maryland charges through their monthly gas bill; these EmPOWER revenues are the funding source for this incentive not the County. The goal of this website and the County is to make sure residents know about programs, incentives, and rebates that are available to them right now to help them lower their energy bills. For those who are unable to make the switch right now, we want to encourage CONSERVATION. The cheapest and most environmentally friendly energy source is the energy we don’t use.
