Customers participating in the residential
EnergyWise℠ attic insulation program are eligible for an incentive of $.15 /
square foot with a maximum incentive amount of $300 per existing residential
dwelling. New construction and/or additions do not qualify.
On a sunny summer day, with the hot sun blasting directly on the roof, attics can get up to 140°F when the inside of the house is 75°F. That is a 65°F temperature differential.
Your house acts like a chimney in the winter, where cooler air enters the house in the lower areas and attempts to exit the house in the warmer – higher areas. A house with a poor and leaky envelope will show significant heat loss through the attic and eaves.
If you have little insulation in the attic (six inches or less on average) and add at least six inches or R-19, take advantage of this EnergyWise℠ Residential Insulation Program. To be eligible, customers must have a heat pump or electric furnace or electric heat (baseboard, radiant, etc.).
The following guidelines will generally apply. Exceptions will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
