ENERGY STAR MANUFACTURED HOME -
The Energy Star Manufactured home program pays for energy-efficiency upgrades when a Jackson Energy member orders a new Energy Star Manufactured Home. To receive the upgrades and the rebate, the homeowner orders the home from their local retiailer and requests the Energy Star upgrades. These include extra insulation, energy-efficient windows and doors, as well as a heat pump instead of an electric furnace.
Once the home is ordered, the manufacturer will verify that the new homeowner is a Jackson Energy member. The Energy Star rebate will pay $1,750 to the manufacturer to cover the cost of the upgrades. These upgrades will make your manufactured home more comfortable and result in lower electric bills, when compared to a home without the upgrades.
TOUCHSTONE ENERGY HOME -
This is a new home program. This home is constructed to an efficiency standard that should use 30% less energy versus standard construction practices for our area. The member should schedule a pre-construction meeting with a JE energy advisor. The advisor will share with the member information needed to qualify their new home as a Touchstone Energy Home. The energy advisor will perform two inspections on the home - a pre-drywall inspection and a final inspection. A blower door test is also performed as part of the final inspection. Touchstone Energy Homes qualify for a $750 rebate.

Examples of resistance electric heat are: baseboard, electric furnace, ceiling cable, wall heaters, etc. The existing heating system is required to be at least two years old. The ducting system, whenever possible, should also be sealed during the installation of the new heat pump. An energy advisor will inspect and the new heat pump before issuing a rebate. New mobile homes are eligible for this rebate when adding a heat pump to an electric furnace.

- Rebate is $500.00 for 13 SEER, $750 for 14 SEER, $1000 for 15 SEER or higher.
- Energy Advisor will inspect.
- Duct system should be sealed.
- Also applies to mobile homes.
HEAT PUMP DUCT SEALING PROGRAM -
A heat pump duct seal includes a check of your residential heat pump duct system for leakage. Ductwork can be a major source of air leaks in the home, as much as 30% in the average home, which causes conditioned air to leak outdoors rathers than stay inside the home. This leads to higher every bills. This program is designed to encourage members to give attention to the HVAC duct systems in their homes. It is a known fact that as these systems age, they will lose some efficiency. With this program, a HVAC technician tests for duct leakage then seals the supply and return ducting, the most important element in the process. The home must be an all electric home.
- Jackson Energy (JE) contacts the JE Contractor with the members contact information
- JE Contractor contacts member to schedule the duct sealing
- JE Contractor completes a blower door test to find the amount and the source of any duct leakage
- JE Contractor performs the duct sealing and retests to show leakage reduction
- JE Contractor sends the results and invoice to Jackson Energy for payment

- Member is charged a one-time fee of $50.00 (per heat pump unit) fee for service.
- Fee will be added to the next bill statement after the work is completed.
