Once you’ve identified your home’s specific needs, you’ll want to take the appropriate steps to address them.
Below are four ways you can get to work on efficiency upgrades.
Do it Yourself
DIY weatherization projects usually won’t noticeably reduce your energy bills, but they can limit drafts and keep you more comfortable. Learn which DIY projects will give you the biggest bang for your buck with Efficiency Vermont’s DIY Guide. Plus, when you complete three or more eligible projects you can get $100 back to help offset the cost of materials.
When you work with a professional weatherization contractor that is part of Efficiency Vermont’s Efficiency Excellence Network (EEN), you can get 75% off project costs (up to $9,500). EEN members are trained to deliver the highest-quality efficiency technologies and services for your home. They can also offer exclusive incentives and financing options like 0% interest loans or on-bill installments on your utility bill.
If you’ve already weatherized your home, installing a more efficient heating system can make a huge difference in bills and comfort alike. Efficiency Vermont, your electric utility, and other organizations around the state offer rebates on heat pumps, wood stoves, and pellet furnaces and boilers.
