Energy Upgrade California – A One Stop Shop for Homeowners
Energy Upgrade California in Alameda County is a one stop shop for homeowners to find everything they need to make home improvements that save energy, water, and other natural resources. The program connects you with participating contractors who can help you plan and complete your project—and get you rebates to help pay for it.
Make Your Home a Complete System
Increasing your home’s energy efficiency isn’t just switching out light bulbs or adding low-flow showerheads—it’s approaching your home as a complete system, with heating, air-conditioning, water and other systems working together more efficiently to help lower your energy and water use.
For example, in cold months the warm air from your furnace can escape through gaps in your attic. If you properly seal and insulate you won’t lose that heat and you won’t have to run the furnace as much. You may even find that you can purchase a smaller, less expensive system when you replace it.
A Whole House Approach
Energy Upgrade California in Alameda County connects you to the experts and resources you need to take a “whole house” approach and directs you to rebates and incentives for sealing and insulation, energy efficient heating, energy efficient windows, high efficiency water heaters, permanent energy efficiency improvements, water saving devices such as low flow showerheads and toilets, sustainable landscaping and self-adjusting irrigation controllers.
Rebates of up to $4,000 are available and Energy Upgrade California can help you take advantage of affordable financing options to offset your upfront costs. In addition, AMP has energy efficiency rebates available to you for even more savings! The benefits of the “whole house” approach include reduced energy and water use, greater building comfort, lower utility bills, minimized waste, improved indoor air quality, increased house value and reduced impact on the environment.
