Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund Offers Home Energy Solutions to Residents

Energy Efficiency Board’s First Vice Chairperson, Rich Steeves informed the availability of a solution to address issues related to warm weather for all Connecticut residents.

According to Steeves, the first step to save energy costs during the summer season is to carry out an extensive energy assessment with the help an expert before the weather gets too hot. This energy assessment will be helpful to understand the ways to achieve high energy efficiency and reduce energy bills.

Steeves stated that through the Home Energy Solutions (HES) program of the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund, trained specialists will conduct the energy assessment, perform on-the-spot enhancements, and offer rebates on insulation, HVAC systems, and appliances. The objective is to provide better energy efficiency for homes, thus eventually saving energy bills.

As per the HES program, a technician will identify and seal leaks, cracks and drafts all through the home; assess attic insulation, wall and appliances; provide and deploy energy-efficient lighting solutions; provide and deploy low-flow, water-saving faucet aerators and shower heads; inform about rebates for HVAC improvements and for replacing certain appliances with ENERGY STAR rated products; and discuss money-saving tips to remain energy efficient all through the year.

Steeves commented that Connecticut residents can also go for other benefits such as improvement or replacement of heating and cooling systems, quality insulation, and the reduction in upfront cost through rebates provided by the Energy Efficiency Fund. Information about incentives and rebates for several appliances can be found on the Fund's website.
