-What is an energy audit?
An energy audit is the assessment of your home’s efficiency. An audit will consist of both interior and exterior inspections, as well as a blower door test that will measure how airtight the structure is. Using the blower door along with many other tricks and tools, the auditor can find all the weak spots in your house. Once problem areas are identified, we can formulate a plan on how to address these problem areas, improve your home’s efficiency the most and get you more bang for your buck. Webb Insulation is located in Houlton serving Aroostook County, Penobscot County, Washington County and beyond.
Webb Insulation has fostered a close partnership with Efficiency Maine that creates many great opportunities for our customers. We are registered with Efficiency Maine to perform insulating upgrades, energy auditing, and air sealing. With our audits and/or insulation, you can receive many great rebates and financing options from Efficiency Maine. Efficiency Maine offers several types of low interest loans covering up to 100% of the project cost. In most cases the energy savings outweigh the loan payments, leaving you saving money almost instantly.
Efficiency Maine offers a multitude of different weatherization rebates, but there are a few particular ones that Webb Insulation specializes in. One of the rebates that we can arrange for you is for Maine’s energy assessment. The cost to the costumer will usually end up being $200 after the rebate. We will come in to do an energy audit plus six hours of air sealing. We will also do everything with Efficiency Maine to arrange the rebate for the customer. Efficiency Maine also offers rebates for insulation. There are separate rebates offered for the three different zones of your home: Attics, Walls, and Basements. You can have different parts of your home insulated and receive additional rebates for that zone plus you will still receive the initial rebate for the energy assessment.
