You can email, fax or mail the application into the Council – see the info located on the bottom of page 2 of the application.
Does the Installer check ($400 or $300) get written out to the installing company or the person installing the unit?
The check is made out to the installer company.
Does warranty work qualify for the rebate?
No, the unit needs to be a new purchase. Warranty work is a replacement of the original purchased unit and therefore does not qualify.
I am sub-contracted through a builder, but installed a propane water heater in the new home, can I qualify for the rebate?

For an install to qualify as a “New Construction,” there must be no prior unit being replaced and proof of new propane lines being trenched must be provided.
I installed a new propane water heater or furnace in a cabin, which is located in Ohio, but the primary residence of my customer is in a different state. Does my customer and I still qualify for the rebate?
Yes, fill out section 2 with your customer’s primary address but also make sure to include the installation address.
I’m a Homeowner and Ohio Licensed Installer, do I get the Installer rebate if I install it myself?
Yes, if you’re the homeowner and a licensed installer and install the unit yourself, you qualify for ONLY the higher amount of the installer incentive ($300-$400), NOT both the installer and homeowner rebate ($300 or $400).
