Did you know that most local energy companies provide energy rebates for homeowners? In an effort to encourage the population to use more energy-efficient appliances and lighting, utility companies all over the United States fund various rebate programs for upgrades, new appliance purchases, and construction projects. The rebates help to offset the initial cost of energy-efficient appliances. Also available are low-interest loads for residential customers. Some utilities have programs in place that will even help pay for improvements that reduce overall connective load on kilowatt usage. And then some utility companies have energy assistance programs that provide monies to help pay for window treatments, insulation and lining, and air conditioning. There are many rebates available from your local utility company to help make your home more energy-efficient.
Yet, as with all rebates, if you don't follow the fine print of the rebate, you might be waiting in vain for the check to show up in your mailbox. Here are some things that you should know about energy rebates offered by utility companies:
File for your rebates as soon as possible. Check expiration dates, closing dates, filing requirements, and ask for a website address to check the progress of your rebate. When you contact your utility company to ask about rebates and incentive programs, get the name of the person who gives you the information. That way, if you cannot check your rebate status online, you will have a name to ask for when you call for a status.
