Yesterday the TVA Inspector checked the energy upgrades I had made under the special TVA/NES Grant program I described in my post “Government Grants May Pay for Repair to Your Cloister Home”. I had several things done that resulted in an 18% annual energy savings.
- Replaced front Bay windows including main panel and both side windows.
- Air sealing to stop outside air infiltration
- Duct sealing
- Central air and furnace tune up
- Attic Insulation to R-38
All the work passed inspection by the TVA and we will be receiving a rebate check totaling $900. The 2011 Federal Energy Tax Credit will add an additional $500 rebate. This totals to a whopping $1400 total rebates! Registration for the TVA/NES grants expires on December 31.
