Thanks to a new government initiative program, homeowners can now qualify for rebates and financial incentives of up to $4,500 while saving money on their monthly utility bills by making energy-saving improvements to your home.
Energy Upgrade California is a collaborative effort of federal, state & local governments as well as regional utilities to reduce energy, use & save money and create new jobs in Los Angeles County. When it comes to energy efficiency, your house works as a system. When insulation, ducts, windows, furnaces and air-conditioning are integrated and work together, then maximum energy efficiency can be reached.
Still not convinced? Here are all the benefits of an efficient home:
1) Saving Money
Good systems don’t work as hard to heat and cool your home, so you don’t have to run them as frequently, which will result in lower energy bills.
Tired of being too hot in the summer or too cold in the winter? Are some rooms cold and others hot? Energy efficient measures available through the program will help keep your home comfortable throughout all seasons.
3) Healthier Home
Better systems help improve the quality of the air inside your home, which is truly a breath of fresh air.
4) Help the Environment
Less energy equals less greenhouse gases. Your energy upgrade will help do your part in saving the environment.
What can you do to participate? Qualifying fixes include insulation, sealing, HVAC upgrades, energy-efficient windows and tank less water heaters. And all work must be performed by an Energy Upgrade California participating contractor to be eligible for rebates and incentives. If you would like to upgrade now and take advantage of the limited- time federal, state and local incentives, then check into the Energy Upgrade California Initiative, and see what you can do to help the environment and save money.
