      • Primary Residence Only
      • Some include installation costs
    • Thru 2016
      • 30% of Cost (No Upper Limit)
      • Primary & Second Homes
  • 3. 2009-2010
    • Insulation
    • Windows & Doors
    • Roofs (Metal & Asphalt)
    • HVAC Equipment
    • Water Heaters (non-solar)
    • Biomass Stoves
    • Note: Not all items with an ENERGY STAR label qualify
  • 4. 2009-2010
    • Existing Houses Only
    • Installation Costs Not Covered
      • Windows & Doors
      • Insulation
      • Roofs
    • Installation Costs Covered
      • HVAC Equipment

      • SEER  14, EER  12, & HSPF  8
    • Comments
      • Air Handler will probably need to be replaced too
      • Savings may be better with lower SEER systems
  • 10. HVAC Equipment: Furnaces

      • Oil Furnace: AFUE  0.90
    • Fossil Fuel Hot Water Boiler
      • Gas, Propane, & Oil: AFUE  0.90
    • Advanced Main Air Circulating Fan
      • Energy use < 2% total furnace energy use
      • Must upgrade furnace too
