Home Comfort Practice can help you achieve energy efficiency and enjoy the numerous benefits it offers. Energy-efficient homes use less energy to heat, cool, and run appliances and electronics. This reduces energy costs, improves comfort, and makes for better health outcomes due to reduced exposure to indoor air pollution. In order to maximize the benefits, we begin with a detailed assessment, secure your eligibility for all available rebates, and then focus on upgrading your home.

Starting with a comprehensive energy audit is crucial to identifying areas where energy is wasted and recommending upgrades to enhance your home's energy efficiency. A Home Energy Solutions (H.E.S.) assessment provides advanced diagnostics and measurements of your home, resulting in a Department of Energy HES Score, which is like a "miles per gallon" rating for your home. HES also includes immediate remedial weatherization improvements performed by our experts that allow you to start saving energy and have a more comfortable home on day one.

An energy audit is not only the logical first step in improving your home's energy efficiency, it also makes you eligible for the best incentives available. Don't wait any longer and get started today.

After the Audit, It's Time to Upgrade! Energy Efficiency Upgrades

Once you're audit is complete, you'll receive your home energy score alongside tailored upgrade recommendations and corresponding rebates and incentives. Home Comfort Practice has the expertise to cover all your energy efficiency upgrade needs.

Insulation is one of the most effective upgrades for energy efficiency, and our BPI-certified technicians have the necessary training and experience to select and install the appropriate insulation materials for each job. We also work with EnergizeCT, Eversource, and UI to get you rebates for insulation upgrades. This not only saves you money on your energy bills but also reduces your carbon footprint, which has environmental benefits such as combatting climate change and improving air quality.

Air sealing is also important for enhancing your home's energy efficiency. Our team can seal holes, leaks, ducts, vents, and windows to ensure that your home's thermal barrier is fortified, resulting in maximum home comfort, cost-effectiveness, and energy efficiency. This improves the health of your community by reducing air pollution and improving indoor air quality.

Energy-efficient windows are another key component of an energy-efficient home. Our team can install high-quality, triple-paned, super-efficient, and affordable window products that will reduce energy costs and improve your home's comfort. This helps you save on energy bills while also improving the resilience and reliability of your home's thermal envelope.

HCP will get you all the energy rebates you deserve. We'll submit all forms and maximize all available rebates for you. Several rebates are available for residential energy efficiency upgrades, including up to $15,000 combined incentives for qualifying air source heat pumps, $300 instant discount for residential gas condensing water heaters, rebates up to $15,000 for qualifying ground source heat pumps, $750 for qualifying units of residential heat pump water heater, up to $1.70 per square foot on approved insulation projects, $750 for qualifying natural gas boilers, $650 rebate for qualifying natural gas furnaces, $300 discount for residential tankless gas water heater, up to $85 instant rebate for residential thermostat, and $100 per window for residential triple pane window.

Can renters benefit from Home Energy Solutions - Income Eligible (H.E.S. -IE)?

Yes! The program is open to owners and renters alike. However, as a renter you will need to obtain your landlord’s approval for any modifications. For example, when drilling holes for blown-in cellulose insulation in walls or when replacing old drafty windows with energy efficient triple pane windows.

Yes! For a limited time, you can recover between 75% and 100% of home insulation costs through Home Energy Solutions! The program is an initiative of Energize Connecticut. The program is funded by small charges you're already paying on your utility bills and allows you to access insulation services at reduced costs and potentially free-of-charge. By performing an Energize CT energy audit, Home Comfort Practice can qualify you for Eversource rebates and UI rebates. The rebates can apply to insulation, windows, appliances, and other energy efficiency upgrades. Get started now by scheduling a home energy audit. 

During an Home Energy Solutions (HES) visit, a utility-certified technician will evaluate your home’s energy performance and install energy-saving measures such as sealing air leaks and installing energy-efficient lighting, faucet aerators and low-flow showerheads. The technicians will also provide written recommendations for deeper energy -saving measures such as insulation, high-efficiency heating and cooling, water heating, windows and appliances. To help you in making smart energy choices, your recommendations will include information on rebates and financing along with payback and investment information specific to your home.
