This program provides an incentive for sealing duct work

 

Availability

This program is available in all service territories served by Blue Grass Energy.

 

Eligibility

This program is targeted to older single-family, multi-family or manufactured dwellings.

Eligibility requirements are:

  • Limited to homes that have accessible centrally-ducted heating systems in unconditioned areas.

  • Initial duct leakage must be greater than 10cfm per 100ft2.

  • An energy advisor or Blue Grass Energy approved contractor must perform a "pre" and "post" blower door test to verify reductions.

  • Duct leakage per system must be reduced to less than 8cfm per 100ft2 (Ex: Duct system serves 1200ft. 1200ft2/100= 12 x 8cfm= Duct Seal Target of 96cfm).

  • All joints in the duct system must be sealed with foil tape and duct mastic. Foil tape alone does not qualify as properly sealing the duct system.

  • For homes that have two or more separately-ducted heat systems, each system will qualify independently for the incentive.

 

Incentives

$400 incentive to member (or their contractor) that meets the eligibility requirements for duct sealing.
