Furnace Rebate Program is an incentive program that encourages consumers to choose a cleaner product, with fewer air polluting emissions, when purchasing a natural-gas-fired, fan-type central furnace. These Ultra-Low NOx furnaces meet the SCAQMD Rule 1111
nitrogen oxide (NOx) emission limit requirements. Furnaces that do not meet the Rule 1111 NOx emission limit can be purchased, but are not eligible for the CLEANair
Furnace Rebate Program and are subject to a mitigation fee.
Furnace Rebate Program is funded by the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD). On March 2, 2018, the SCAQMD Governing Board authorized an initial $3 million, as well as additional funds from fees collected from those furnace manufacturers selling non-compliant furnaces.
