Energy Audits & Weatherization

Save Money and Make Your Home More Energy Efficient and Comfortable

Looking to make your home more energy efficient and more comfortable? The Home Heating Index tool is an easy, online way to determine if your home qualifies for an audit that can ultimately help you earn energy efficiency incentives and rebates as part of NHSaves Audits and Weatherization Program.

Along with these meaningful incentives, the program offers access to established contractor relationships and low-interest financing that contribute to savings of up to $6,000 in rebates on overall improvement costs.
