Home Performance with ENERGY STAR®
The best way to achieve comfort, efficiency and healthy indoor air quality is to look at each part.
Old Way of Thinking About Insulation
Similar to Pluto no longer having a place amongst the major planets, the world of insulation is likely to be demoted.
As it turns out, insulation has been installed incorrectly for a very long time.
Don't simply think that if you see insulation in the attic that you have everything "covered".
Insulation, in order to be effective, must be accompanied by an air barrier. Air barriers take many forms. Insulation that is subjected to air flow will not meet the listed R-value on the label.
Qualifying for BGE insulation rebates depends on a correctly installed insulation project.
A trained BGE energy auditor can determine where weaknesses exist in your house's shell in order to prescribe proper treatment and maximize your return on investment.
BGE Rebate Program - How Much?
The following measures are assigned a rebate amount based on modeled electric and gas savings that a properly trained energy auditor maximizes for you.
UP TO $7500 OR 75% OF JOB COST
AVERAGE PROJECT REBATE IS $2500
Eligibility: The offer is valid for BGE residential customers that apply through the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Program only.
To qualify, you must have a BGE account number and you must work along with a participating contractor.
The work must meet specific guidelines and strict building standards for ventilation and energy codes.
Air sealing must be completed prior to installing insulation in all circumstances.
Most projects require the installation of programmable ventilation to meet indoor air quality standards for a healthy and safe environment once the home is tightened up.
Should you get a BGE energy audit?
Is Your Home a Good Candidate for the Audit?
Maybe getting an audit would not open BGE program rebates to you for some reason.
Get right to it and get your BGE energy audit. Like one customer that had the audit done said:
"You have been working non-stop Eric. Are you sure it is only $100 for the energy audit?
Contract with Hometrust
Prior to paying out the rebates, BGE reserves the right to inspect the work for meeting all applicable building codes, zoning laws, local, state and federal requirements; and other relevant requirements. Any program participants home may be selected for a quality control post-installation inspection by BGE.
Translation: The job needs to be done by the book!
