A home is a living entity, requiring constant attention in the form of maintenance, repairs and upgrades over the course of its lifetime. Energy-efficient upgrades make the biggest impact on the value of your home, monthly budget, and the environment, but as if those weren’t incentive enough, Duke Energy offers a number of cash rebates to further sweeten the deal.
In order to qualify for, and take advantage of, the incentives offered by Duke Energy, you’ll need to start with a home energy check. This simple, online audit provides you with an abundance of information, while determining if you qualify for a complimentary energy-efficiency kit. The contents of the kit are designed to enhance your efforts, and help you save money now, and for years to come.
To begin the evaluation you’ll need both the account, and PIN numbers from one of your Duke Energy bills, and approximately 15 minutes to answer a series of questions. Information gathered from this exercise will include:
Knowing which area(s) of your home use, and lose, the majority of energy.
A detailed report outlining energy usage throughout your home.
Energy saving tips.
Suggestions to improve your home’s energy efficiency.
Additional options are available to conduct your home energy check over the phone, or with a home visit by a qualified energy advisor.
**You must have Duke Energy perform an energy audit either at your home, online, or over the phone prior to receiving the rebate.
Energy-Efficient Home Improvement
Once you have your report in hand, you can begin implementing changes as time and budget allow, taking advantage of cash rebates along the way. Some of the most common energy-efficient home improvements, with the biggest returns include:
Added insulation. Heat loss and gain through inadequate insulation levels can significantly impact your monthly energy bills. Upgrading attic insulation is one of the best ways to increase comfort, and decrease energy usage, with a Duke Rebate of up to $200 for qualified customers. Beacon Services installs Owens Corning, Pink, Loosefill Fiberglass insulation. This product is NO ITCH, and has a lifetime warranty against settling.
Beacon Services provides duct inspection and repair. Leaky ducts, whether due to damage or improper installation, allow conditioned air to escape before reaching your living space, and contaminated air to enter. A professional duct inspection can pinpoint the location and cause of the leak(s), through visual inspection, or using specialized equipment, prior to the completion of repairs. Duke Energy will pay the first $150 in repairs as an added incentive.
Beacon Services & Appliances | Beacon Air & Heat installs new HVAC equipment upgrades. An ailing, or aging heat pump provides you with a reduced level of comfort and efficiency, in comparison with the high-efficiency models available today. Depending on the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER), and Heating Season Performance Factor (HSPF) of the equipment you choose, you can expect a Duke Rebate between $200 and $800 dollars towards the purchase price.
**Beacon Air & Heat will complete the rebate forms for you once the air conditioning install is complete, however you need to make sure the audit is completed by Duke Energy in order to receive the rebate on your monthly bill.
