Residential rebates for home insulation and air sealing

Properly insulating and air-sealing your home can significantly reduce heating and cooling costs. It cuts off the drafts and makes your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer.

With the Home Energy Improvement Program from Duke Energy, you can get up to a $500 rebate. The incentive pays 37.5 cents per square foot, up to a maximum $500 rebate. Schedule an appointment with one of their prequalified contractors today. Want to know more about common air leaks in your attic, and how they're fixed? Download the PDF guide to air sealing and insulation. You may need attic insulation upgrades if you have: o Drafty rooms o Hot and cold rooms; uneven temperatures between rooms o High heating or cooling bills o An AC or heater that runs constantly, even when you think it shouldn't o Dry indoor air in winter o Dust (especially in rooms directly below the attic)

To be eligible, your home must have a centrally ducted heat pump or central AC and your contractor must seal the attic for air leaks and upgrade insulation to a minimum of R-30 from R-19 or less.

      It seems as though there are a lot of savings that come with having a well insulated home. I can see how insulating your home to make it cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter without using your HVAC more can help to save you money, but I didn't know that there are companies that have energy programs designed to incentivize people to improve their homes to be more energy efficient. I would definitely want to insulate and air seal my home for a $500 rebate. Do most companies offer up to a $500 rebate, or is it only this company from the Home Energy Improvement Program? It would be good to know about companies that offer good rebates to give me more of an incentive to make my house more energy efficient. http://brandxmetals.com/products/diamond-furr/3-inch-c-i-system/diamond-furr-3-ci-sys-os-corner-detail
