Upgrading insulation and air sealing not only saves on energy bills but also extends the lifespan of heating and cooling systems. A more efficient home ensures uniform temperatures throughout, eliminating hot and cold pockets. In addition to the immediate benefits of cost savings, the long-term advantages of upgrading insulation and air sealing are substantial. Enhanced energy efficiency contributes to a reduced carbon footprint, promoting environmental sustainability.

2024 Rebates for Qualifying Upgrades | Best Insulation Contractors Twin Cities MN

For a home to qualify for a rebate check from Xcel Energy or Centerpoint Energy, there must be certain upgrades that take place. The following are the rates that you can expect from your energy company:

Xcel Energy

  •  Attic Insulation Qualifying Criteria
    • Pre-Job condition: ≤ R19
    • Post-Job condition: ≥ R49
  • Wall Insulation Qualifying Criteria
    • Pre-Job condition: Empty Wall Cavity
    • Post-Job condition: ≥ R11
  • Air Sealing
    • Reduction in CFM50 of at least 15%

Centerpoint Energy

As it is evident from the above rates, we will pay special attention to your attic as that is where the majority of homes are leaking air. Older homes and newer homes alike have a (not anymore) surprising shortage of insulation in their attics. And because people rarely, if ever, see their attic, they are unaware of this deficiency. At Century Insulation, we will ensure that your home’s attic is sufficiently insulated so that it is energy efficient and you can save money.

 

Income Tax Information*

The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) does contain some federal funding for energy projects. In this bill, there are two parts that you’ll likely encounter. There is a tax credit via section 25C of the bill that provides a 30% of project cost tax credit, capped at $1,200. It is not through the utilities as you’re accustomed to, but would be taken as a tax credit when the customer files their 2023 tax return. It is effective as of January 1, 2023 (applies to projects completed 1/1/23 or later), but the customer wouldn’t realize the credit until they file their 2023 tax return.

25C covers the following weatherization projects: insulation, air sealing, doors and windows upgrades, and energy audits. 25C provides households a 30 percent tax credit for the projects, capped per year at the following amounts:

  • Insulation and Air Sealing: $1200
  • Doors: $250 per door, $500 total
  • Windows: $600
  • Energy Audits: $150

The credit resets each tax year, effectively becoming available again for additional projects.

Best Insulation Contractors Twin Cities MN | Advantages of an Energy Audit

When Century Insulation performs an energy inspection on your home, we will investigate and air leakages, from warm air leaking in the winter to cool air leaking in the summer. We will use infrared devices to determine any air leakages and where new or additional insulation should be placed. We will also inspect your heating and cooling systems and give you detailed report with advised fixes/improvements.

Furthermore, an energy audit from Century Insulation and subsequent improvements will help to protect your home from destructive ice dams. When an attic is unevenly insulated, heat normally escapes through the top, causing snow at the top of the roof to melt and drip down, pooling where it’s stopped by an ice dam. This pooling water can eventually leak through a roof, into an attic, and down exterior walls, creating the potential for mold and mildew. But when you have a free energy efficiency inspection performed, you can be certain that we will check thoroughly for this and that your home will be sufficiently protected from this hazard.

If you are looking for a Centerpoint Energy or Xcel Energy preferred contractor to inspect and improve your home’s energy efficiency, contact the experts at Century Insulation today at 763-270-8765.
