WHOLE HOME IMPROVEMENTS
The more you do, the more you save
Energy experts recommend taking a comprehensive, whole home approach when looking to boost comfort and keep your energy bills in check. The Whole Home Improvements path helps you do just that by looking at your home as a system. It starts with a home energy assessment. You'll receive a clear road map of recommended improvements, cash incentives, and expert guidance to help you use energy smarter.
Homeowners who receive an energy assessment typically see utility bill savings of 20% or more. Plus, you'll qualify for the highest incentives. Consider it your reward for getting the most comfort out of your home and taking a comprehensive approach to saving energy.
ASSESSING THE ASSESSMENT
A home energy assessment helps pinpoint where your home is wasting energy, what you can do to save money and enjoy greater comfort, and determines the best order to complete improvements. It's performed by a trained and certified Trade Ally contractor who will also look at health and safety issues that may be present.
