Save hundreds of dollars when you weatherize your home
Weatherization prevents the loss of warm or cool air through unseen leaks and seams. It’s an easy, cost-effective way to increase the comfort of your home while saving money and energy.
What you get
The total value of your weatherization rebate depends on how much insulation and sealing your home needs. In order to receive this rebate, you must use a contractor who is a PSE Recommended Energy Professional (REP) or another PSE Trade Ally. Your contractor will deduct the instant rebate amount from your invoice.
|Weatherization type||Rebate value *|
|ENERGY STAR® whole house ventilation (electric only)||$50 per unit|
|Prescriptive air sealing (attic and/or floor)||$0.10 per sq ft|
|Attic insulation (R11 to R49)||$0.50 per sq ft|
|Wall insulation (R0 to R13)||$0.75 per sq ft|
|Floor insulation (R11 to R30)||$0.25 per sq ft|
|Prescriptive duct sealing and insulation (R0 to R11)||up to $400|
|Duct sealing only*||up to $300|
|Advanced duct sealing**||up to $1,250 per home|
Take a whole-home approach and bundle 3 or more weatherization measures, and receive an additional bonus rebate:
|Number of measures||Bundle bonus value|
|Bundle 3+ measures in one project||$350|
|Bundle 4+ measures in one project||$500|
*Applies to homes permitted and built before 2001; cannot be combined with other duct sealing rebates
** Advanced duct sealing is a non-toxic, non-invasive method of duct sealing; your ductwork will be sealed from the inside out, improving heating and cooling system performance and indoor air quality. Ask your contractor about this option.

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.
