If your home is primarily heated by oil, propane, kerosene, butane, or wood, you may be eligible for a cash payment if you install a new, efficient oil furnace or replace your furnace's oil burner. Homes primarily heated with natural gas or electric heat do not qualify for SHOW cash payments.
The cash payment is valued at 50 percent of the cost of the project, up to $500 ($2,500 for Community Action Agencies).
Qualified oil furnaces must:
- Have a tested steady state efficiency rating of at least 81%.
- Replace an oil heating system that is more than 20 years old or has an efficiency rating of 70% or less.
Qualified oil burners must:
- Have a tested steady state efficiency rating of at least 80%.
- Replace a burner that is more than 10 years old or has an efficiency rating of 70% or less.
See the full SHOW program requirements in the Administrative Rules .
Please Note: Administration of the SHOW program will move to Oregon Housing & Community Services (OHCS) in January 2018.
After installing your oil furnace or burner, fill out the SHOW Application and send to the Oregon Department of Energy. Please include your completed Energy Audit Checklist and a copy of your itemized receipt.
Applications are available for owner-occupied homes, rental homes, and Community Action Agencies.
