Weatherize your home
Efficiency Vermont has recently increased the rebates for air sealing and insulating Vermonter's homes dramatically to 50% of the cost of the project.
The rebates have caps that are income sensitive. If your household income is less than 120% of the area median income (AMI) you are eligible to receive a rebate equal to 50% of the cost of your weatherization project up to to a cap of $4,000. If your income is above the 120% level you still qualify for a rebate equal to 50% of the cost of your weatherization project up to a cap of $2,000. Below is a chart outlining the 120% AMI thresholds based on the number of people in your household and the county you live in. If your income is less than the figures shown in the chart below, then you qualify for the rebate of up to $4,000. In general, air sealing and insulation projects generally cost between $5,000 and $10,000 dollars so this incentive is truly meant to pay about 50% of the project costs.
