Prepare for Winter with Free Energy Efficiency Assessment
The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) reminds residents to prepare for the cold months ahead by signing up for an energy efficiency assessment through Home Energy Solutions.
Energy efficiency improvements are a great way to lower your energy bills, and now is a great time to sign up for an assessment, as residents who do so before March 31, 2021 may do so at no cost and can receive up to 100% off the cost of qualified insulation projects.
All Home Energy Solutions participants receive an energy efficiency assessment of their home in addition to on-the-spot energy improvements, such as air sealing, energy-efficient lighting, and water-saving devices worth an average of $1,000.The average Connecticut household saves $200 per year from the initial visit, and often more if additional measures are completed.
For a limited time, higher incentives are also available for windows and heat pumps, an energy-efficient technology to heat and cool your home.
