Are you a homeowner looking to improve your home's energy efficiency and save money on utility bills? The Bay Area Regional Energy Network (BayREN) offers a range of services and incentives to help you achieve just that.

The BayREN Home+ program offers rebates and incentives for energy-efficient upgrades in single-family homes such as air sealing, duct replacement, and insulation! By working with participating contractors, you can take advantage of these incentives and make the transition to energy efficiency more affordable.

Even when you don’t feel a draft, air leaks may be letting cooled air out of your home — and letting unwanted pollutants inside. Sealing leaks is an inexpensive, effective way to lower cooling costs this summer, increase comfort and improve durability. Check out BayREN’s Air Sealing Rebate and see if you qualify. Note: this rebate will need to be part of a “building shell” upgrade. 

Did you know that improperly sized or leaking air ducts can cause your home to lose 30-100% of your cooled air before it even reaches you? Leakage also means that dirty air can get sucked into the duct system and distributed throughout the house, potentially causing poor indoor air quality. BayREN’S Duct Replacement Rebate is the perfect way to tackle this problem when newly sealed air ducts don’t make the cut.   

Beat the heat and save some dough by upgrading your home’s insulation for a breezy summer and impressive energy savings. By providing resistance to heat flow, insulation keeps cool air inside your house, and keeps the outside temperatures out. Insulation is a “building shell” upgrade.

To qualify for BayREN rebates, you must work with a BayREN Participating Contractor. Not only can these contractors help you make recommended upgrades in your home, they have been vetted by BayREN to ensure they meet certain standards and can provide high-quality work.
