For Contractors


There are many reasons to improve the energy performance of your home through the NC Home Performance with ENERGY STAR (HPwES) program including:

Increasing your comfort in every room


Everyone has that one room that always seems to be too hot or too cold. Improving your heating and cooling system, adding insulation and air sealing will help keep rooms comfortable so you can enjoy living in every room in your home.

Improving health and safety for your family


HPwES's whole-house assessment also checks your home's air ventilation system and combustion appliances to minimize risks for carbon monoxide, fire and harmful air pollutants.

Saving money on your utility bills

The upgrades in the HPwES package include things like upgrading to more efficient lighting and appliances and can save you up to 20% on your energy bills.

Increasing the durability and value of your home


Moisture management measures, like balancing the air pressure in your home or improving the heating and cooling systems, reduce the potential of moisture buildup, which can damage the structural integrity of your home and also promote mold growth which can be harmful to your health. Taking steps to make your home more durable will help lower maintenance costs and maintain the value of your home.

NC HPwES only uses high-quality contractors with extensive training and experience. Quality assurance of each contractor's work is a required component of NC HPwES. Advanced Energy monitors the work at every stage to ensure that upgrades are installed correctly so you get the results you want.
