Key Energy Efficiency Improvement Your Healthy Benefit Your Savings Benefit
Air Conditioning and Heat Pump Equipment Keep your home comfortable and at the ideal moisture level. Eliminate excess moisture and reduce risk for mold. Correctly-sized and efficient AC units ensure proper cooling throughout the home while eliminating high humidity. This increases your comfort level and decreases the energy use of the air conditioning equipment. Properly-sized, high-efficiency air conditioning units help you save an average of 20% on summer energy bills.
Duct Work Sealing, Repair, Replacement Direct conditioned air to your living areas, not your attic. Minimize indoor airborne pollutants and improve air quality. Leaky air ducts allow particles like allergens, germs, dust, and pollutants to enter your HVAC system, affecting your whole household. Proper sealing of home air ducts introduces fewer airborne particles to impact your respiratory health. Improving ducts saves energy and money, especially since the average duct system in a 10+ year-old home only delivers 73% of its air to the intended location.
Home Weatherization Maintain desired indoor air temperature. Reduce access points for pests. Protect against UVA radiation. Weatherization makes a big difference. Increasing attic insulation levels helps maintain indoor air temperatures. Sealing around doors, windows and plumbing removes sneaky access points for critters and insects. Solar shading blocks UVA radiation to protect against sun damage.  When you seal all of your home’s hidden air leaks, you seal gaps equal to an opening about 10” x 10”. Plus, you can save up to 8% of total energy costs by air sealing your home and adding insulation.

Save Money and Energy

Through April 15, 2019, save up to $2,400 on qualifying projects. You can even take advantage of attractive financing to help you get started and enjoy up to 20% savings on your summer energy bills.
