Improving the Energy Efficiency, Safety and Air Quality of Your Home
An assessment for up to $1500 in HESP2 incentives and PACE/PowerSaver Loans takes 3-4 hours and cost $350 for two visits. The furnace/boiler is checked for safety and efficiency, a blower door test and infrared scan will assess the baseline building performance to identify those areas that will have the biggest impact on energy use. It also includes review of contracts for rebate compliance and inspection of improvements with a blower door test once work is completed.
A report with the recommended improvements will be provided for your use in hiring contractors for the work. All recommendations will be based on an anticipated return of your investment at five years or less. Supervision of insulation work is also available for unregistered vendors to qualify for the rebates and loans.
