Say goodbye to drafty rooms, uneven temperatures, mold and moisture problems, and hidden causes of high energy use. The step-by-step information below will guide you through the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® process—from finding your contractor through project completion and applying for all possible program rebates.
Step 1: To be eligible for rebates, select a participating contractor to perform your home energy audit. The cost for the audit is $100 (a $400 value). If the home is more than 3,000 square feet or has more than one combustion zone, additional fees may apply at the discretion of the contractor you select.
Each customer is eligible for one program-discounted home energy audit per unique street address.
Step 2: Schedule your home energy audit with your contractor.
Step 3: Review the Home Energy Audit Report and Prioritized List of Measures with your contractor, discuss the findings and recommendations, and decide on the measures to implement.
Step 4: Have the work performed, which enables you to take advantage of rebates averaging $2,500 for improvements such as air sealing, insulation and replacement of heating and air conditioning equipment.
