Insulate your attic:
save on your Xcel bill,
save the planet!
Here's the scoop on the rebate: There is now 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 they are not optional items, because the rebate is contingent on getting 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 Xcel. 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, sight unseen we cannot guarantee that it will add up to a 10% drop. That said, if we come out to do an in-person bid, at that time we can size up the feasibility of getting it, and we can go from there.
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. Happily, we can say that at least so far, all of our customers have ended up qualifying.
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!
