Home Performance with Energy Star Rebate Program

Rebate Program Information and Process:

Austin Energy Home Performance

Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® is a whole-house approach to energy efficiency. By making energy efficiency improvements to your home, you can save money on your monthly bill. All work is done by specially-trained NATE Certified professionals that are registered with the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program who understand how your home operates.

Precision Heating & Air will perform a walk-through visual inspection of your home and identify increased energy-saving and home comfort opportunities in the following areas:

  • Install a new central air conditioning or heat pump system*
  • Convert window unit(s) to a central air conditioning or heat pump system
  • Add attic insulation*
  • Repair and seal leaking ducts*
  • Caulk and add weather stripping
  • Solar shading or film for windows
  • Install attic radiant barrier reflective material (qualified products only)
  • Install water heater pipe wrap insulation
  • Install heat pump water heaters

*Some improvements require blower door and duct blower testing.

After Precision conducts your home energy analysis, one of our NATE certified professionals will discuss your home’s condition with you, suggest improvements, and leave you with an estimate for any needed work.

If all recommended work is completed, you will receive a Home Performance with ENERGY STAR certificate. Which when you goto sell your home will exempt you from the disclosure and reporting requirements of the Energy Conservation Audit and Disclosure (ECAD) ordinance (City of Austin only). This certification could also increase the value of your home by up to 5%.


Austin Energy’s standard rebate averages 20%, or up to $1,600 per system when you make all recommended improvements.
