Looks Like More Cash For Caulkers

By: Brian Schutt  |  May 10, 2010

As of last week, the House of Representatives moved forward the Homestar Energy Retrofit Act of 2010 with a vote of 246 to 161.  What it means for homeowners once it gets passed through the Senate is an extension of the popular “Cash for Caulkers” program of 2009.  The provisions provide up front rebates of up to $3,000 for the installation of specific energy-saving technologies, including insulation, duct sealing, windows and doors, air sealing, and water heaters.  If you go all out and get an energy audit and reduce your total energy usage by 20% the Gold Star program allows for up to $8,000 in tax credits.
