Insulate your attic:
save on your Xcel bill,
save the planet!
There is required pre- & post-work blower door testing, as well as a carbon monoxide safety test (aka a "CAZ test") that our certified energy auditor must come out to perform. These things have added cost to our bids and they take a bunch of time, but unfortunately, they are not optional items, because Xcel will only offer the rebate contingent on seeing a 10% drop in the overall leakiness of your home... and not getting that drop means no money back.
To be clear: if your home does not have a lot of openings&chases&stuff for us to seal up in the attic to begin with, then a chance exists that a 10% drop in overall leakiness may not be achieved and while you will get the benefits of the work and the peace of mind from having the above-mentioned CO safety testing completed, you'll get nothing back from them. Most rebates just require a simple purchase, but this one does not, and while we seal up everything we find that is open to your attic from your home, we cannot guarantee that it will add up to a 10% drop. Once we are done with the work, full payment of the invoice is due and then the post-work testing will determine if you get the rebate money back or not. While we are proud to say that so far, all of our customers have ended up qualifying, before we head down this path we want to make sure you understand that despite our best efforts, you may not. (But you probably will!)
By all means, let us know if you have questions, and remember that the most important thing is getting your attic insulated, rebate or not!
