Energy Efficient Bulbs & More

Our Homestead Energy Solutions experts will replace certain inefficient light bulbs in your home with energy-saving, long-lasting CFLs. You may also receive energy-saving, low-flow shower heads and faucet aerators to lower water usage and related heating costs.

Insulation Checkup

Does your attic and basement have the right insulation? Our expert has the answer. If your insulation needs to be upgraded, you may qualify for a rebate to help pay for some of the cost. The right insulation makes a big difference in how energy efficient your home is. We’ll help you make the right choice. The rebate will have all the information you need to know when contacting an insulation professional.

Draft Sealing

Our energy expert will inspect your home using the latest tools to pinpoint the most wasteful drafts and leaks in your home. We will inspect your windows, doors, attic, exhausts, dryer vents, recessed lights, crawlspaces and ductwork. Our expert will find those leaks and seal them during the visit, making your home more energy efficient. Afterwards, we will test your home again and show you the difference.

Save on New ENERGY STAR® Appliances

Did you know that your refrigerator uses almost five times the electricity the average television uses? If yours is ten years or older, it could be 40 percent less efficient than new ENERGY STAR ® labeled units. Our energy expert will evaluate your refrigerator, along with other major appliances, and you may receive valuable rebates toward the purchase of new ENERGY STAR® replacements.

Education

Our expert will sit with you to review all the steps and actions taken to make your home more energy efficient. They will also talk to you about your home energy habits and make suggestions to help you lower your energy usage even more, making your home more comfortable and reducing your energy costs.
