Uncomfortable in you home? High heating/cooling costs? Polk-Burnett can help you with that by lowering the cost of a blower door/infrared testing process. Polk-Burnett will rebate you 3/4 of the cost of a home performance test. Having the process done can save you wasted money on improvements that do little for your investment. Please call 800-421-0283 ext 595 for a list of approved energy raters and find out/verify where the improvements really need to be made to save you money.
Polk-Burnett pays up to 30% of the cost (not to exceed $1000) of home improvements made based on the home performance test and the reduction of air infiltration that was achieved. A second test within 12 months after the original test was conducted will be free of charge and will show what the reduction result is.
Polk-Burnett offers a $500 rebate for a new home. You will need to call Polk-Burnett and have your home tested by an approved energy rater. The test results must show less than a 3.0 ACH at -50 pascals in order to qualify.
