Save Money on Upgrades to Your Home with ENERGY STAR

America has begun the transition to a clean energy future, as more of the electricity we use is being generated from clean, renewable energy sources. Taking action now can help you prepare for a clean energy future, while enjoying energy savings and a more comfortable home today.

You can be part of this transition by upgrading your home with super-efficient heating and water heating technologies, proper insulation, and more – all vital elements of an ENERGY STAR Home Upgrade. 

And now, with unprecedented funding through federal and local incentives, including upfront discounts, tax credits, and personalized services to help get it done, these upgrades have been made more affordable and accessible.

The tax credits cover improvements such as installing heat pumps, heat pump water heaters, insulation, doors, and windows, as well as electrical panel upgrades, home energy audits, and more. 

Utility Income Eligible Programs

Federal Income Eligible Programs & Services

Many federal programs and services are available to support income-eligible households that either need help paying energy bills or live in older homes that are not well-insulated or energy-efficient. Find out if you are eligible for these programs and services and learn what they offer to help you make home improvements that make your home more comfortable and help reduce energy costs. 

What Upgrades Qualify for Tax Credits?

ENERGY STAR Home Upgrade

An ENERGY STAR Home Upgrade includes six high-impact home improvements that will save energy and money and make your home healthier and more comfortable. Elements of an ENERGY STAR Home Upgrade also qualify for tax credits and other incentives and services offered by your utility and the government so that you can save on upgrade costs and energy bills. Here are some of the specific upgrades recommended by ENERGY STAR:

Clean Heating & Cooling

ENERGY STAR Certified Heat Pump HVAC uses super-efficient electric heat pump technology that heats and cools your home so you can have one system that does it all. Because it doesn’t involve burning fossil fuels, it’s safer and healthier and helps reduce air pollution.

Home Sealing and Insulation. When you upgrade your heating and cooling system, it is important to ensure that your attic is properly insulated and sealed to get the most savings out of your more efficient system. Making sure your home is properly insulated and sealed also improves comfort by reducing drafts and keeping conditioned air from escaping.

Super-Efficient Water Heating

ENERGY STAR Certified Heat Pump Water Heaters use electric heat pump technology by taking heat from surrounding air and transferring it to the water in an enclosed tank to heat it. So it's not only super-efficient, but it reduces the humidity of your garage or basement.
