Home Performance With ENERGY STAR® Program

Would you like to save on your energy costs and increase the comfort of your home? You can do both—and receive rebates up to $5,000*—by participating in the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Program.

What to Expect

To get started making your home more energy efficient, schedule a home energy assessment with a Participating Contractor. Contractor fees may vary for this assessment. It is suggested that you contact several contractors before selecting one.

Next, a specially trained Participating Contractor will come to your home and perform a comprehensive Home Energy Assessment, which consists of the following:

  • Health and safety check (carbon monoxide levels, moisture, indoor air quality)
  • Overall comfort level (cold/hot spots, indoor air quality, stuffiness, stale odors)
  • Air leakage
  • Insulation levels
  • Heating and cooling system efficiency
  • Water heating system

After the assessment, you’ll receive a detailed report with recommended improvements to take advantage of available rebates, reduce energy usage and control costs.

New Financing Available for Home Upgrades

Interested in financing opportunities for home upgrades? You may qualify for 0% interest loans for recommended energy efficient improvements. Find out more about financing options here.

In addition to your Home Performance program rebate of up to $5,000, air sealing and insulation work is eligible for a tax credit of 30% of the project cost (up to $1,200) with Inflation Reduction Act federal tax credits. Plus, if you upgrade to a new ENERGY STAR® certified hybrid water heater, you could receive similar federal tax credits (30% of project costs up to $2,000)**. Click here to learn more.
