Dec. 31, 2017.  The range of opportunities for home energy upgrade incentives is changing , and we hope to have details early in the new year.  Home energy audits are always available through REAL, regardless of any subsidies available for the assessment or upgrades.  

 A home energy assessment is a valuable tool available to homeowners to make their homes more energy efficient. Almost any home, new or old, can benefit from some adjustments to reduce its energy use. A Registered Energy Advisor can determine the sources of energy wasting deficiencies in your home, suggest ways to counter them, and indicate which upgrades will give you the most bang for your buck. What’s in it for you?

Lower Energy Bills. Many of the improvements you make pay for themselves in a very short time.

Improved Comfort. An assessment can find the source of cold drafts and inconsistent temperatures, which once addressed will make your home more comfortable.

Health and Safety.  An inspection could detect ventilation problems and identify the potential for backdrafting of your heating equipment that could lead to smoke or carbon monoxide entering your home.

A Healthier Environment. Reducing your home’s energy use reduces your environmental impact –less waste, less pollution, less contribution to climate change.
