The Buderus Logano G215 Oil/Gas Fired Boiler is available in 5 models which have heating capacities from 134 to 294 MBH all of which have an efficiency of 86% AFUE or better which makes them Energy Star Rated Boilers when fired on oil. When fired on gas the Logano G215’s have a combined efficiency of 83.5% so the G215’s are not Energy Star Rated when fired on gas. Having the Energy Star rating is important because it signifies the boiler meets standards of efficiency and makes purchasers eligible to receive a variety of Rebates, Grants, and Tax Credits for installing a Buderus G215 Boiler. The Buderus G215 boiler purchasers are eligible for up to a $200 Rebate under the Appliance Stimulus Package, a Grant up to $6500 under the Weatherization Assistance Program if you qualify, and Income Tax Credit of 30% of the money you spend to have a Buderus G215 installed in your home up to $1500. These incentives are part of the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act which is seeking to provide incentives to consumers which will stimulate the economy providing work for the US employees of Buderus and the installers while providing a savings on energy consumption and lowering our dependence on foreign energy. The Rebate, Grant, and Tax Credit programs can greatly offset the cost of the boiler upgrade and put the energy savings in your pocket sooner.
