Duke Energy Promotes Home Energy Upgrades for Florida Customers

Duke Energy is taking the lead in encouraging Florida customers to make energy-efficient upgrades to their homes. With their Home Energy Improvement rebates program, customers can earn generous incentives of up to $1,700 in rebates.

Melissa Seixas, Duke Energy Florida state president, emphasizes the importance of reaching out to their team of specialists before making any home improvements. By doing so, customers can receive guidance on how to enhance energy efficiency, lower their bills, and add value to their homes.

To help customers understand their energy usage and identify areas for improvement, Duke Energy offers a free Home Energy Check. By completing this check online, residential customers receive a comprehensive report detailing their past and current energy usage. Additionally, expert recommendations are provided to increase the home’s efficiency.

For single-family homes, there are several incentives and rebate offers available based on the recommended improvements. Qualifying upgrades include attic insulation, duct testing and repair, high-efficiency HVAC replacement, and energy-efficient windows. Depending on the home type, customers can receive rebates of up to $800 for attic insulation, 50% of the cost of duct testing, up to $200 for duct repairs per system, up to $300 for HVAC replacement, and up to $400 for energy-efficient windows.

Manufactured homes and multifamily properties are not left out of the program. Customers in this category may qualify for a $150 rebate incentive for HVAC replacement.

To get started on their home energy journey, customers can complete a free, self-directed Home Energy Check assessment on Duke Energy’s website. For more details and full program information, interested individuals are encouraged to visit duke-energy.com/HEI.

As an additional benefit, customers participating in any of the Home Energy Improvement rebates programs may also be eligible for a free quality control compliance inspection. To schedule an inspection, customers can simply email [email protected].
