Energy-efficiency upgrades

AHIP’s Energy Retrofit Initiative, a partnership with the Local Energy Alliance Program (LEAP), improves the efficiency and health of clients’ homes, helps homeowners lower operating costs associated with heating and cooling, and reduces the residential energy footprint of our local community. We have partnered with LEAP since 2011 to conduct energy audits, carry out projects, and measure efficiency gain.

Tasks include:

  • insulating attics and insulating and conditioning crawlspaces
  • air-sealing
  • duct-wrapping
  • replacing outdated, oil- or wood-based heating options with high-efficiency heat pumps
  • installing high-efficiency windows and doors
  • installing ENERGY STAR-rated appliances

Our energy upgrade projects seek to achieve a minimum 20 percent efficiency gain for homeowners as set by the U.S. Department of Energy. The projects typically average $5,000.
