Get an Assessment

Getting a home energy assessment is an early step in the process of energy and financial savings. Understanding how your home uses energy will help you and your IRA Registered Contractor create a custom action plan. By updating equipment, insulating and air sealing your home, and exploring other ways your home can save energy, you will unlock qualifying rebates, instant discounts, or other incentives to save you money, energy, and be more comfortable.

There is a cost for the assessment. Low-income households are eligible for a rebate to help cover the cost. Tax credits to help offset these costs are also available to those who qualify. Ask your home assessor for more details.

    Savings and More

    Income verification determines the level of rebates available to you. After your required home energy assessment, you will learn how much energy your house currently uses and identify opportunities to achieve savings. Households qualify for rebates based on how much energy they’re expected to save and their household income. The more energy you save, the higher the rebates available.
