If you mark an item on your plan as completed, we will track your estimated energy use and savings over time. We can use this to find additional savings options.
Through our Finance Marketplace, you can search across different types of financing products to find the right options for you. This includes options for both secured and unsecured loans as well as product specific loans (e.g. solar financing).
No matter how efficient your heating and cooling equipment is, if your home is not properly sealed and insulated, you may not be as comfortable as you could be, and your heating and cooling systems will have to work harder. Additionally, if you have leaky or poorly insulated ductwork, your home might have humidity problems, excessive dust, or rooms that are never quite comfortable. Improving the building shell and sealing ducts can generally improve your home.
