Affordable Home Updates: We’ve Got a Grant for Everyone!

As winter sets in, homeowners in Central New York are searching for affordable home updates to cut energy costs, save money, and make their families more comfortable. There are a lot of ways to accomplish boosting your home’s energy efficiency. The experts at Energy Savers can help identify the upgrades that offer the biggest bang for your investment. Plus, with new incentives and grants, you won’t believe how affordable saving energy can be!

Get Started with a Free Home Energy Audit

The best way to begin is to have a free home energy audit conducted on your property. Energy audits assess your home from top to bottom and pinpoint areas where your home needs improved insulation, air sealing, or window replacement. With the results of your home energy audit, you’ll better understand how to: 

  • Improve energy efficiency
  • Lower heating and cooling costs 
  • Make indoor air quality healthier
  • Increase comfort 
  • Help the environment by reducing energy waste

Energy Savers’ home energy audits are conducted by Building Performance Institute (BPI) trained technicians to meet high industry standards. Having your home audit with a BPI contractor means your upgrades can qualify for valuable incentives and grants. 

Best Value: Upgrading Insulation and Air Sealing 

Most families in Central New York are looking to get the most impact from their energy efficiency upgrades. Upgrading your home’s insulation and air sealing has one of the biggest returns on investment and really makes a big difference in your family’s comfort. 

As top insulation contractors, Energy Savers offer two types of insulation

  • Greenfiber Cellulose Insulation — An affordable, environmentally-friendly option for attics walls and floor assemblies
  • Spray Foam Insulation — A combination of chemicals that create a high-density hard foam insulation with a high R-value. Spray foam air seals and insulates in one application.

Air Sealing Helps Insulation Perform Better

Air sealing is completed before installing cellulose insulation to seal the cracks and gaps that most homes develop over the source of a lifetime. During your home energy audit, we often use infrared imaging to spot where air is leaking in so that air sealing can be applied. In addition to making insulation more effective, air sealing improves indoor air quality by keeping outdoor allergens and pollutants from circulating inside your home. 

Energy Savers Has Grants and Incentives to Help You Save!

Here’s the best part of boosting your home’s energy efficiency—there’s never been a better time to add insulation and air sealing because of the generous incentives available! The efficiency professionals at Energy Savers can help you identify valuable home efficiency grants, rebates, and tax credits to offset the cost of new insulation upgrades.

NYSERDA Comfort Home Program

NYSERDA’s Comfort Home program simplifies the process of making intelligent investments for a more energy-efficient home by promoting the latest clean energy heating and cooling alternatives. The program provides incentives for standardized and pre-screened home improvement packages, ranging from sealing and insulating an attic and rim joists (good package) to sealing and insulating attics, walls, and windows (best package). By offering pre-packaged home improvement options, NYSERDA makes it more convenient for homeowners to combine services and establish a healthy and comfortable living space.

EmPower New York

EmPower New York’s energy saving program provides free attic and wall insulation along with other money-saving services to income-qualified families. A second program, Assisted Home Performance with Energy Star®, can cover as much as 50% of efficiency upgrades, up to $5000 for qualifying families. Don’t worry if it sounds confusing—our easy online form can get you started on the qualification process! 

Federal Tax Credits

In addition, there is a new 30% tax credit and thousands of dollars in rebates that all families and individuals qualify for, regardless of your income! With these rebates and incentives, you can lower the upfront cost of installing new insulation, air sealing, windows and doors, and more, allowing you to start benefiting sooner!
