The Empower Home Energy Tune-Up: Competitively Priced
The Empower Home Energy Tune-Up is a low cost/high impact residential energy efficiency package that is designed to save homeowners $300 to $1,000 per year. Internally, we talk about this as a “no brainer”, because the cost to have Empower install the package is offset by the savings in energy bills you realize because your home is more energy efficient. The package is primarily an insulation and air sealing install. But this is also coupled with LED light bulbs and an ecobee smart thermostat that helps homeowners manage their energy use more effectively. Many of our customers who have installed our package will see a return on their investment in as little as 2.5-years. Every dollar saved after that is simply more money in your pocket.
But the real question to ask is whether the Empower Home Energy Tune-Up package is competitively priced with other similar installations. Well, the answer is “yes – it is very competitively priced.” As the official energy services provider to your community, we are able to work with manufacturers like Owens Corning and ecobee to negotiate a lower cost for materials. In addition, since we are responsible for marketing the energy efficiency package – including installation – our local contractors cut us a deal on the install of the entire package.
