Home Energy Efficiency Programs
Improving the energy efficiency of your home is a smart investment. NYSERDA offers a range of residential programs designed to help New York State residents identify areas where their homes are driving up energy costs and can provide assistance in completing energy efficiency improvements for a healthier, more comfortable home.
A home energy assessment (also referred to as a home energy audit), conducted by trained and experienced contractors, is recommended as a first step to get a top-to-bottom look at where your home is wasting energy. After the free or low-cost assessment, you’ll receive a customized report outlining your home’s energy performance and a list of recommended improvements. Potential cost-effective improvements may include adding insulation and energy-efficient lighting, upgrading your heating system to an energy efficient heat pump, or switching to ENERGY STAR® certified appliances.
Find the program that best suits your needs by entering your County and the number of people living in your house or apartment. Use the chart below to see the maximum income level allowed by each program.
