Weatherization Rebates

Insulation:

Insulation is the most practical and affordable way to make your home more energy efficient and
comfortable. Insulation helps prevent heat transfer from inside your house to the outside, reducing
your heating and cooling costs and improving the comfort of your home. Insulation slows the loss
of heat from your home by providing a layer between your house and the outside air and is measured
by R-values, which is a measure of heat resistance. The higher the R-value, the better.

The total value of your insulation rebate depends on how much insulation the different areas of your
home need to be properly weatherized. Income-eligible customers may qualify for free weatherization
through the City of Seattles HomeWise Program.
