Invest your tax refund in energy efficiency

Posted April 02, 2013, at 9:08 a.m.

The average tax refund has been around $3000 for the past two years, and financial experts suggest that investing in your home is one of the smartest uses for that bonus cash. Since investing in energy efficiency will actually reduce your fuel bills, it’s an investment that will save you money every month.

“Investing in targeted air sealing and insulation can make a huge difference for Maine homeowners,” said Evergreen Home Performance President Richard Burbank. “We regularly cut people’s energy bills by 25% or more.”

Some of the most important opportunities to improve energy efficiency are hidden in attics and basements, and may go unnoticed by homeowners or even some insulation contractors. Energy Advisors at Evergreen Home Performance are certified by the Building Performance Institute and experienced in finding those opportunities.
