The Home Performance with ENERGY STAR (HPwES) program takes a holistic approach to saving energy in your home. ENERGY STAR® estimates that you can save up to 20% on heating and cooling costs by adding insulation to the walls, basement, pipes, attic, attic stairs, crawl space and rim joists in your home.
An in-home energy audit is the first step in making your home more efficient. An audit will evaluate your home’s characteristics and energy usage and provide recommendations on ways you can improve efficiency and save money. There is a $100 fee for this service, which includes diagnostic testing for air and duct leakage ($100 audit fee is reimbursed if you move forward with weatherization recommendations). Homes heated with oil, propane, wood, natural gas, kerosene, or electricity may qualify.
If you decide to move forward with the program, you are also eligible to receive:
*$8,000 MAXIMUM for air sealing and insulation combined.
It all starts when you complete the Home Heating Index application at www.NHSaves.com/homeheating. You’ll get customized results for your home and heating situation. If you qualify for the program, the site will display a link to an enrollment application and instructions. For details visit http://www.nhsaves.com/hpwes.
