Contact your utility before making energy efficient upgrades.
If you’re considering upgrading to LEDs or adding other energy efficient features, check in with your local utility first. Utilities often run different incentives and sometimes they require you to partner with an approved company or require a visit to your property before you make changes in order to receive the incentive. Other times there may be deals if you upgrade two different areas at once—for example adding door and window seals at the same time as LEDs. Checking first with your local utility can help you save money.
If you have an idea, email Senior Editor Erin Rigik Del Conte at firstname.lastname@example.org.
