To get the rebates, you need to identify the type of repair/improvement you want to make. Next identify if there is a rebate and identify an approved contractor that can do the job. There are lists of approved contractors for each repair/improvement area. If you want to do more than a single improvement it may be worth deciding if you can qualify for Home Performance with ENERGY STAR®. Home Performance with Energy Star is a designation you can get if you do at least three approved projects and possibly leads to additional rebates.
