The City of Winter Park is now offering rebates to Winter Park electric residential and commercial customers for implementing energy conservation measures at their home or business. The links below will provide further detail as to the specific items included in the program.
To take advantage of conservation measures and rebates for your home or business, here are the steps to get started:
- Request an audit by calling 407-599-3220 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
- Complete a Home Energy Check Audit with our auditor, receive a list of conservation measures that are eligible for rebates.
- Hire a contractor to install the eligible conservation measures.
Please note: You must first complete a free Home Energy Check Audit with a qualifying recommendation to be eligible for any incentives. New construction and projects involving more than two-thirds of the square footage of the original structure are not eligible for rebates or incentives.
Checking to see if your air duct system is properly sealed is an inexpensive first step to making your home more energy-efficient. The city will pay half the cost of the duct test – $30 of the $60 cost for the first unit at your home, and $20 of the $40 cost for each additional unit at the same home. If we find any problems we’ll pay up to $150 toward the repair.
Attic Insulation Upgrade
Over time, attic insulation settles which reduces its insulating barrier and its ability to keep hot air out of your cool house. Having insulation added to under-insulated areas in your attic is one of the easiest ways to help you lower your energy bill. The city will even pay $75 – or more – to help you upgrade your attic insulation.
Heat Pump Replacement
If you have an older home, it’s probably underinsulated. Today’s heat pumps are much more energy efficient than they were just 10 years ago. Replacing a 12- to 15-year-old unit with a new highefficiency heat pump could save you up to 30 percent on your energy bill. The city will pay up to $350 when you upgrade your old heat pump or heat strip.
Reduce the amount of the sun’s heat that enters your home, increase your comfort, and lower your energy costs by installing energy-efficient replacement windows, window film or screens on your home. The city will pay up to $250 when you upgrade to energy-efficient windows or make your existing windows more energy efficient.
Wall Insulation Upgrade
Properly insulating your walls improves your home’s comfort and makes it more energy efficient. To help make this home improvement more affordable, The city will pay 20¢ per square foot – up to $300 – when you add injected wall foam insulation to your home.
Reducing the temperature on your roof translates into lower temperatures in the attic and throughout your home. The city will pay up to $40 for a manufactured home and up to $150 for a single-family home when you apply or install an ENERGY STAR qualified reflective roof product to make your home more energy efficient.
Solar Water Heating
A new solar water heating system can save up to 85% of your water heating costs. The city will pay a $550 rebate to help with the cost of the system.
Energy-efficiency is one of the few investments that can help you gain a return on your energy bill and on the value of your home.
