Brrrr....cold house? Energy Trust can help you insulate
Feel a draft in your house as fall weather sets in?
Energy Trust of Oregon is offering, for a limited time only, extra rebates of up to $300 for those who make qualifying improvements to their home insulation. The bonuses, availably now through the end of the year, could provide $100 each for insulating floors, walls and ceilings.
The bonuses are in addition to Energy Trusts standard insulation incentives, available to customers of PGE, Pacific Power, NW Natural and Cascade Natural Gas.
To find out more, its best to consult with one of Energy Trusts trade allies, contractors who arrange to work with the nonprofit and its rebate programs.
Homeowners tired of wearing wool sweaters around the house due to drafty homes also might seek a free Home Energy Review through Energy Trust.
The Portland nonprofit is financed by utility surcharges to help cut energy use in the area.
