Save hundreds of dollars when you weatherize your home
You can lower your energy bills by preventing heat or cooling loss through unseen leaks and seams. Insulating (or weatherizing) your home is an easy, cost-effective way to increase the comfort of your home while saving money and energy. When you instantly save with PSE's insulation rebates, it gets even easier.
What you get
The total value of your insulation rebate depends on how much insulation the different areas of your home need to be properly weatherized. Income-eligible customers may also qualify for PSE's Weatherization Assistance program or Efficiency Boost incentives. In order to receive this rebate, you must use a contractor who is a PSE Recommended Energy Professional (REP) or another PSE-authorized contractor to complete the install. Applicable rebates are determined and provided to the customer by the PSE-authorized contractor as an instant rebate at the point of sale. For site-built homes, this rebate applies to homes permitted and built before 1990.

WAIVER OF LIABILITY: PSE does not guarantee any particular energy savings results by installation of the weatherization measures proposed by the independent contractor ("Authorized Contractor") authorized by PSE. PSE is providing customers ("program participant(s)") who desire certain weatherization measures with a discount off the price, when an Authorized Contractor installs such measures. Please note that PSE is not involved in evaluating the weatherization measures that may be suggested by the Authorized Contractor to a program participant.
The Authorized Contractor and its employees are not employees of PSE and PSE will not be supervising the work performed by the Authorized Contractor for program participant. As such, any issues related to the work undertaken for the program participant should be addressed directly to the Authorized Contractor because PSE shall not be responsible in any way for proper completion of the work or proper performance of any product acquired by a program participant under this weatherization program. By accepting the discount, program participants agree to these terms and assume the risk of any loss or damage(s) that they may suffer in connection with failure to achieve energy savings.
This is a tariffed service and subject to change or termination without prior notice.
