This post brought to you by Santa Clara County’s 80% Home Energy Assessment Rebate. All opinions are 100% mine.
This Winter has certainly been a lot warmer than last, but nonetheless, its been chilly. Chances are we've all turned on our heaters to keep us warm, and if you're out of luck, maybe it takes a lot more for your house to get warm. Now, we moved into a new construction home a couple years ago and am astounded at how cold it gets, drafts coming from every which way. Its frustrating, and so it the fact that some rooms get hotter than others. Why? We have no idea.
All this translates into high energy bills, as a matter of fact, our recent gas bill rose $40+ from last months. This is a great reason to get a home energy assessment! The lucky homeowners of Santa Clara County are being offered rebates that cover 80% of the cost of a home energy assessment by participating contractors. All you need to do is visit sccgov.org/energyupgrades for a list of participating contractors and enjoy your great 80% savings.
There are many benefits to completing a home energy assessment, the one that I like the most is LOWER BILLS. Energy assessments also determine the efficiency of your home's heating and cooling systems. I highly suggest you look to find out if similar rebates are available in your local area and check out the Facebook for more information.
