New York Expands Funding for Home Efficiency Projects

Updated: Aug 4

Don't Miss this Home Improvement Game-Changer, Orange County!

Effective July 13, the income limits to access funds for a home energy efficiency upgrade have been dramatically lifted. This change means a large majority of Orange County homeowners can now qualify for the Assisted Home Performance program and receive up to $5,000 per single family home ($10,000 for a 2 to 4-unit home) to complete energy efficiency upgrades.

Each year, New York State homeowners waste hundreds of dollars in energy. But efficiency improvements offer proven solutions in the face of high energy bills. The Assisted Home Performance program, offering a 50% discount on projects installed by certified contractors, makes it easy and affordable to lower your energy bills and live more comfortably all year long. And now, in response to COVID, the New York Energy Research and Development Authority has lifted the income restrictions, qualifying a significantly larger pool of homeowners.

The Assisted Home Performance experience starts with a free home energy assessment conducted by a trained and experienced contractor. The assessment provides a comprehensive look at where your home is wasting energy. You will learn the root cause of any drafts, inconsistent temperatures, heating and cooling system failures, or other problems you may be experiencing. Choose your recommended upgrades, get 50% off the total and enjoy better comfort and energy savings. Good for you, your neighbors and the planet.

Ever considered the various HVAC options? If you are in the market for better heating and cooling, don’t forget about modern, efficient heat pumps. HeatSmart Orange can help you access the generous 2020 rebates for installing these updated technologies and connect you with vetted contractors.
