Advanced Home Upgrade Details

insulationAbout Advanced Home Upgrade
An Advanced Home Upgrade is customized for a homeowner’s needs. The more energy they save, the bigger their rebates and incentives. It is often a broader and more flexible work scope, including multiple building shell and equipment upgrades. This pathway can include upgrades to 2-4 unit projects.

The Participating Contractor or Rater will work with the homeowner to identify ways to save the most energy. Rebates and incentives depend on the modeled energy savings of the project, calculated using energy modeling software. Projects may earn up to $5,500* for significant energy savings.

This program requires a minimum of 2 measures and 10% energy savings, which may include:

  • Wall Insulation
  • Attic Insulation
  • Floor Insulation
  • Whole Building/Envelope Air Sealing & Ventilation
  • Exterior Windows
  • Infiltration Reduction Measures (Air Barriers)
  • HVAC Equipment Replacement
  • Duct Insulation
  • Duct Sealing
  • HVAC Duct Replacement/Retrofit
  • Radiant/Hydronic Heating
  • Lighting
  • Domestic Hot Water
  • Tankless Water Heating
