Heating, and cooling are some of the largest energy costs for most households, and also provide the largest opportunity for money and energy savings.

  • Is your furnace over 15 years old?
  • Is your furnace an older gas furnace with a pilot light?
  • Is your furnace not running properly?

You may qualify for the Emergency Furnace Replacement program in partnership with Midland County Habitat for Humanity and Consumers Energy.

Technology has moved on to electronic ignitions which are much more energy efficient. It’s time to consider upgrading to a newer furnace if you’re tired of relighting your pilot light or the thought of having to do so worries you. An energy efficient furnace allows you to spend less money heating your home, and you will worry less about the quality of your air.

Some qualifications:

  • Furnace must be natural gas
  • Cannot service mobile homes or trailers
  • Must be a Consumers Energy client
  • Applicant must own the home (no land contracts or rent to own)
  • Must have homeowners insurance on the home
  • Must be up to date on taxes and mortgage payments (if applicable)
  • Must meet 30—80% Area Median Income. See for AMI info
