Home Heating Index Tool and Streamlined Online Application Process Makes it Easier for Customers to Realize Incentives and Energy Savings.
MANCHESTER, NH – With fall just around the corner, NHSaves is making it easier than ever for residential customers to assess their home’s energy efficiency and qualify for incentives through the introduction of a new and improved online tool and application process.
Meaningful incentives, established contractor relationships and access to low-interest financing contribute to significant savings of up to $4,000 on overall improvement costs. Through enhanced weatherization tactics supported by NHSaves, customers save on all of their energy use, including electricity for cooling during the summer, as well as on oil, propane and wood heating costs during colder months.
The HHI tool and weatherization program is a part of the Home Performance with ENEGRY STAR® program, a comprehensive, whole-house approach to improving energy efficiency and comfort at home that can save customers on energy costs. The program was recently honored by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) with the Exemplary Program Award as one of the leading energy efficiency programs in the United States
Due to low fuel prices, some natural gas customers may not qualify for the full Home Heating Audit. Liberty Utilities and Unitil natural gas customers who can upgrade at least one home heating zone to a WiFi thermostat may qualify for a newly launched efficiency assessment called a “Visual Audit.” This abridged audit still determines the home’s energy efficiency and provides homeowners with the direct installation of efficiency products like LED light bulbs and pipe wrap, as well as a check on insulation.
“Customers who go through this program will see immediate benefits through their utility bills and through the fact that their house will be more comfortable and quieter because it’s better insulated,” says Ben Stephenson, Program Coordinator, Customer Energy Solutions for Unitil.
