What we'll be covering

Why Upgrade?

  • Cut fuel costs with a high-efficiency boiler system
  • Low maintenance, high efficiency
  • Save on maintenance costs and reduce down time
  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions
  • It’s time to replace technology that is no longer reliable
  • Right-sizing your boiler to meet the current demand

For large boiler replacements or reductions in capacity, talk to us about maximising your funding with Measurement & Verification. 

Eligible Upgrades

If you have Gas-fired Steam or Hot-Water Boiler you may be eligible for an upgrade.

  • Full boiler replacement
  • Install an Economiser
  • Heat Recovery
  • Replace an old burner
  • Control system upgrades e.g. O2 Trim, blowdown control

Frequently Asked Questions

What type of grant am I eligible to get with a boiler upgrade?

Depending on where your site is you can access one of the state or federal Energy Efficiency Certificate programs.

How do I access the funding?

Like all government programs there are specific evidence and audit requirements to access the funding. These include, photos, test reports, and sign offs. Talk to Northmore Gordon or your installer before your upgrade to make sure you meet all the requirements.

How long does it take for the incentive to come through?

Using one of the Deemed Methods, the incentive payment will take 1-2 month once the boiler is commissioned. Using an Measurement & Verification approach can give a greater incentive but you can expect payment 15 months after commissioning.

Who can access the boiler rebates and incentives?

All business and industrial customers are able to receive incentives under these schemes. Northmore Gordon can work with your installer to access the funding as part of the installation or we can work with you directly.
