Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Air Sealing and Insulation improvements

- All work that will receive an incentive must be completed by the Home Performance with Energy Star Trade Ally or their sub-contractor.
- Incentives are based on the potential energy savings (percent) as calculated by the program software. This savings cannot include updates to HVAC equipment, lighting, appliances, windows, or the installation of a renewable project such as solar electric. The Whole Home Path focuses on air sealing and insulation of the building shell (walls, foundation and attic).
