Home Performance with ENERGY STAR®

Watch our video to learn how Home Performance with ENERGY STAR can boost your home's comfort while reducing your energy use and saving money.

Home Performance with ENERGY STAR takes a whole-house approach to reducing a home's energy use while improving its comfort, durability, and safety. Instead of tackling energy problems individually, such as replacing an old heating and cooling system or fixing leaky ductwork, Home Performance with ENERGY STAR looks at a home as one system and recommends comprehensive improvements for better results.

How It Works

  1. It starts with a home energy audit. For only $100* (a $400 value) through SMECO's Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program, a participating home performance contractor will use diagnostic tests to identify specific improvements to reduce energy use by up to 20%.
  2. The contractor will provide a list of solutions and details on the associated energy savings and rebates available from SMECO—up to $3,800!
  3. The homeowners decide which solutions make sense for their home and budget, and then the contractor will get to work installing them.

Home Performance with ENERGY STAR is a national program of the U.S. Department of Energy. Working in partnership with the national program, SMECO's locally sponsored Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program is available to current SMECO customer-members. Learn how to get started today!

Note: Due to the popularity of the Home Performance Program, rebate applications submitted after August 6, 2014, will be placed into a queue in our rebate reservation system. Once an application has been received, it will be placed on a waiting list to be reviewed. Throughout the reservation process the SMECO Home Performance Program will notify the customer and participating contractor via email* with additional details about the status of the rebate application.   

If there are any questions, please contact your participating contractor and or call 877-818-4094 for additional details.

 *Customer notification relies on the customer email address being included in the rebate reservation application.
