Rebates and Ideas for Homes Built in 1959 or Earlier
If your home was built prior to 1960, you likely have the most to gain from energy efficiency upgrades. Older homes can benefit from added attic, floor, duct and wall insulation—plus, good insulation is an inexpensive way to make a big improvement in home comfort. Major advancements in water heating and heating system technologies can also go a long way in helping your home to be more efficient.
Also, replacing single-pane or early models of double-pane aluminum framed windows could lower your energy use by 10 to 12 percent. Choosing ENERGY STAR® compact fluorescent lighting when replacing bulbs or fixtures can help you achieve energy savings of up to 75 percent on your lighting, without compromising the look and feel of your home. And when it's time to replace appliances, buying those with the ENERGY STAR label will help you save up to one-third on your energy bill.
