If you live in Seattle, your home is eligible for a reduced-cost energy audit. The audit will provide you with a comprehensive analysis of your home’s specific energy attributes (windows, insulation, weather-stripping etc.) and heating systems. You also will receive information on how various energy- saving upgrade options interact with each other and a list of efficiency upgrades that are most appropriate for your home.
In addition, your home may qualify for a combination of rebates, low-interest financing and tax credits for energy improvements such as a new water heater, updated attic insulation, and weatherization.
