Austin Energy Efficiency Savings
Home Performance with ENERGY STAR®
Enjoy an energy-efficient home that will keep you and your loved ones comfortable while also keeping your wallet happy. Here’s how you can start taking advantage of Austin’s great energy incentives right away.
To get started call Fox Service Company at (512) 488-1120 to schedule a free in-home evaluation. We’ll assist you with choosing the right heating and air conditioning upgrade for your home that also qualifies for maximum utility incentives. We have licensed technicians that can help you understand everything you need for your home to qualify. As a participating contractor for Home Performance with ENERGY STAR, we will:
- Conduct a no-cost home energy and comfort analysis
- Discuss your home’s current efficiency and answer any questions
- Recommend home energy improvements
- Provide an estimate for recommended and desired work
- Help you with the entire loan and rebate application process
Depending on what you need, the improvements could include installing a new air conditioner, performing an A/C tune-up, repairing leaky ducts, adding attic insulation, and more. If you complete all the recommended work you could receive a Home Performance with ENERGY STAR certificate. Having this certificate will exempt you from reporting the requirements from Energy Conservation and Audit Disclosure ordinance for when you are ready to sell your home.
There are also financial benefits for being a Home Performance with ENERGY STAR customers. As a customer, you may have access to a now increased loan to improve your home’s energy efficiency. Once pre-approved through Velocity Credit Union, you could qualify for up to $20,000 in 0% interest financing for the approved home improvements.
