Marshall Fire Vendor Discount Programs
The HBA of Metro Denver's Marshall Fire Task Force has been working with HBA Members to identify and compile a list of opportunities for savings to help Fire Families rebuild. Below is the current list of those offerings, and the list will be updated as new savings programs become available.
Mountain High Appliance (LG)
The Builder Program offers a 10% discount off the minimum sales price of the SKS major appliances. With that the Homeowner then would also be eligible for a SKS mail in rebate of 5% or 10% depending on the number of products purchased. Again, the SKS Builder Program will be a 10% discount off the face of the pricing and then another 5% or 10% mail in rebate post delivery. (rebate form required)
Mountain High Appliance (Subzero / Wolf / Cove)
Builders who are already signed up or can qualify for the Builder Program are eligible to purchase the Subzero, Wolf, Cove products at the set Builder Pricing. From there the Home Owner would also qualify for the additional 10% mail in rebate. Discounts will vary depending on model. (rebate form required)
Mountain High Appliance (Thermador)
Thermador offers both a Builder and Retail Programs. With a qualify purchase from the Thermador clients are eligible to receive FREE product(s), while the Builder Program will also offer the FREE products but also a 7% discount on qualifying purchases. Linked here is a copy of the 1-2-FREE Programing and also the Marshall Fire mail in rebate that may be both used together. (rebate form required)
Living in Place Institute (Mitsubishi Electric Trane)
Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US (METUS) will provide a 20% discount to local distributors for eligible Mitsubishi Electric heat pump products. A further 20% discount from distributors may be provided in their pricing to contractors for equipment specifically for residents impacted by the Marshall fire. Contractors are encouraged to pass these savings, along with their own discount, to the resident. The goal is to have a combined discount from METUS, distributors, and participating contractors will total up to 50% off equipment list price.
To receive the discount:
- General contractor or HVAC contractor contacts Shawn LeMons, METUS Performance Construction Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org or 720-648-0505) to learn about the details of the discount and purchasing process.
- Mr. LeMons verifies contractor and project eligibility, then refers project info to a METUS authorized distributor (CD Jones or GA Larson).
- The METUS authorized distributor sends a quote for the product to the General or HVAC contractor.
- General or HVAC contractor uses the distributor product quote, including up to 10% discount (voluntary only) to the homeowner.
*Rebate is available to any resident who lost their home or was significantly impacted by the Marshall fire and is available until 12/31/2023

Heat pumps and home electrification
The legislation provides significant incentives for low- and moderate-income households to electrify their homes, replacing fossil-fuel furnaces, boilers, water heaters and stoves with high-efficiency electric devices that can be powered by renewable energy.
The $4.28 billion High-Efficiency Electric Home Rebate Program would provide a rebate up to $8,000 to install heat pumps that can both heat and cool homes, and a rebate up to $1,750 for a heat-pump water heater. Homeowners can also obtain up to $840 to offset the cost of a heat-pump clothes dryer or an electric stove, such as a high-efficiency induction range.
Many homes will need their electrical panels upgraded before these appliances can be installed, and the program offers up to a $4,000 rebate for such improvements. To make homes more energy-efficient, a rebate up to $1,600 will be available to insulate and seal a house, and a rebate of up to $2,500 is offered for improvements to electrical wiring.
The program, to be administered by the states, would run through Sept. 30, 2031, and homeowners would be able to collect a maximum of $14,000 in rebates. To qualify, household income cannot exceed 150% of the area median income.
“The impact of this program is huge, as it will help over a million low- and moderate-income households make the switch to electric,” Sam Calisch, head of special projects for Rewiring America, a national nonprofit that promotes home electrification, said in an email. “This looks like a slam dunk win for electrification. “For homeowners who do not qualify for the rebates, the IRA provides for a tax credit of up to $2,000 to install heat pumps. Other energy-efficiency measures, such as installing an induction stove or new windows and doors, qualify for tax credits up to $1,200 a year. (edited)
