Most homes leak heating and cooling in lots of ways.The Button-Up Program can find the leaks and offer vital tips on insulation and more. Rebates are available for qualifying energy measures.
The Button-up Weatherization Program offers an incentive for reducing heat loss of a home.
To be eligible for the incentives:
- the home must be at least 2 years old
- the primary source of heat must be electricity
- complete an initial inspection and blower door test and a post-improvement inspection and blower door test to measure Btuh reduced
There are four levels of incentive available to eligible participants:
Button-Up Level I
The insulation portion of the program, Level I, promotes the reduction of energy usage. It provides an incentive of $40 per 1,000 Btuh reduced, up to $520.00 resulting from insulation improvements.
Level I with Air Sealing
Reduces energy usage through air sealing. This could include caulking, improving weather stripping, sealing attic accesses, etc. Level I with Air Sealing provides an incentive of $40 per 1,000 Btuh reduced up to $750.00.
Reduces energy through a whole house approach, fixing all leakage issues at one time. A reduction of 25,500 Btuh pays the full Level I incentive plus an additional $310.00 for a total of $1060.00.
Reduces energy through a whole house approach but, the reduction should be at least 34,250 Btuh and this incentive will pay the full Level I , plus $620.00 for a total of $1370.00.
