Rheem and Clarke Kent Plumbing Join Texas Gas Service in Offering Substantial Rebates to Austin Residents
Rheem and Clarke Kent Plumbing Inc. have teamed up and are working with Texas Gas Service to offer Austin-area homeowners a comprehensive rebate for high-efficiency tankless natural gas water heaters. Texas Gas Service already provides a $600 limited-time rebate toward the purchase of a tankless or super-high-efficiency natural gas water heater through September 30, 2012. While this time, Rheem and Clarke Kent Plumbing will each provide $150 in rebates for the purchase of a Rheem tankless water heater. Combined, these rebates lower the cost for a tankless installation by $900 - taking the total price for the unit and installation from about $3,495 to roughly $2,595.
"Texas Gas Service's rebate is impressive, as it's double the rebate amount they've offered in the past. Rheem and Clarke Kent Plumbing realized we could as well make a considerable impact on the program by offering our own instant rebates," said Mike Siuda, director of tankless sales and marketing for Rheem. "Combined, our rebates lower the upfront investment for a tankless water heater by about 25 percent, which is a tremendous advantage to a homeowner."
Texas Gas Service, Rheem and Clarke Kent Plumbing will be on-hand at the Sustainable Food Center's Farmers' Market in Downtown Austin on Saturday, June 30, from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. The companies will be raffling off one Rheem Prestigeâ¢ Series Condensing Tankless Water Heater to a lucky farmers' market attendee that day. Operating at 94 percent thermal efficiency, the Rheem Prestige Series Condensing Tankless Water Heater is Rheem's most efficient tankless water heater to-date. This unit earned recognition on This Old House magazine's 2011 list of Top 100 Best New Home Products. For more information, please visit www.sfcfarmersmarket.org.
