Have you been spending most of your winter avoiding drafty areas of your home? Do these areas seem to be getting colder by the day? If so, your home could be in need of immediate repairs. However, while these repairs can have a drastic impact on the comfort level of your home, the cost of such repairs doesn’t have to be through the roof. If you live in the Decatur area and have a certain household income, you may qualify for an Income-Qualified Program through Ameren Illinois. This program provides substantial savings on some of the most common household repairs.
So how does it work and what does it cover? Assured Insulation Solutions has the answer to these commonly asked questions.
What’s Your Eligibility?
Eligibility for this program is dependent on your average household income, and the program covers a large variety of incomes. Incentives are generally available for those with household incomes ranging from $35,640 - $122,670. Maximum income for qualification depends on the number of residents in your household:
- 1 Resident = $35,640
- 2 Residents = $48,060
- 3 Residents = $60,480
- 4 Residents = $72,900
- 5 Residents = $85,320
- 6 Residents = $97,740
- 7 Residents = $110,190
- 8 Residents = $122,670
If your home falls into any of these categories, you may be eligible for coverage under the Income-Qualified Program.
Energy Saving Incentives
Participation in the Income-Qualified Program allows homeowners to improve the comfort level of their home at a discounted price. On average, most energy efficient repairs will save you a substantial amount of money over a longer periods of time, but participating in the Income-Qualified Program will also allow you to save money on immediate costs. Through the program you can receive incentives on repairs such as: air sealing, insulation installation, upgrading your heating/cooling system, and replacing your light bulbs and showerheads.
Wondering why you should invest in these repairs now? The majority of discomfort in your home is caused by escaping energy, through miniscule holes scattered throughout your house. Such holes are often impossible to see and can make heating certain parts of your home nearly impossible. Upgrading your heating/cooling system can have a big impact on the comfort level of your home, but if you have any of these leakage points, even an effective system can have little impact on certain rooms. In order to make your home more comfortable you’ll have to get rid of the escaping energy. Installing new insulation, covers these existing holes, while air sealing provides an extra layer of protection around these insulated areas. Sealing these holes can have a huge impact on the effectiveness of your heating system and the overall comfort level of your home. In addition, replacing light bulbs and shower heads can also add to your level of comfort.
Under the Income-Qualified Program, these repairs can not only make your home more comfortable, but also much more energy efficient.
