Financing, Rebates & Incentives landing page header image

Financing, rebates, and incentives help make energy-efficient upgrades more affordable for local homeowners. Home Energy Medics is a participating contractor with a number of incentive programs and can help you qualify for financing, tax credits, and rebates on home updates that will lower your energy bills and improve indoor health and comfort.

Below is a comprehensive breakdown of what incentives are currently available in the areas we serve but to get a good idea of potential savings for your home, use the calculator below.


25C Energy Efficient Home Improvement Tax Credit

The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) includes several new and improved incentives for energy efficiency upgrades, including an increased federal tax credit available to any homeowner in the United States making upgrades to an existing house. 

Here are the details:

  • Federal tax credit equal to 30% of energy efficiency home improvement costs 

  • Qualifying services include insulation and air sealing ($1,200 annual limit, materials only), energy audits ($150 limit), windows and doors ($500 annual limit for doors, $600 for windows), HVAC upgrades, and more

Home Energy Medics can provide you with a full invoice and the paperwork you or your accountant will need to receive this deduction when you file your taxes.

Inflation Reduction Act Rebate Programs

The IRA also created two new rebate programs, which will be handled individually on a state-by-state basis. These rebates aren’t available yet, but as more information becomes available for Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC, we will update this page!

EmPOWER Maryland - Home Performance with ENERGY STAR

In Maryland, the state’s EmPOWER Maryland program makes energy efficiency rebates near you available through your local utility. For our Maryland customers, that includes Pepco and BGE, which both participate in the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Program that offers:

Dominion Energy - Virginia

In Virginia, Home Energy Medics is a pre-qualified contractor with Dominion Energy. Households who are Dominion customers can qualify for incentives on energy efficiency services including:

Home Energy Assessments

Dominion’s reduced-cost home assessment is a 30-minute visual walk-through of your home to identify and perform upgrades on your hot water heater (like wrapping it in insulation to conserve heat), lighting (replacing older bulbs with LEDs), faucets (replacing faucet aerators), and more.

Residential Home Retrofit Program

Dominion’s retrofit program is a more in-depth look at how energy efficient your home is. It starts with a comprehensive home energy audit (following the full BPI process—no shortcuts!). After your audit is performed, Home Energy Medics will recommend upgrades that your home could benefit from, including:

  • Insulation and air sealing

  • Bath fans

  • Ventilation

  • HVAC work

  • Windows and doors

  • and more

While the audit itself is full-cost for the customers, rebates are available for the services themselves. Home Energy Medics handles all of the paperwork and receives payment from Dominion after work is completed, then sends customers a check for the rebate amount minus an application administrative fee.

Rebate amounts will vary depending on the house and the energy efficiency services rendered. We can provide an approximate rebate dollar amount before any work is started, but only after the full home energy audit is performed (this is how Dominion’s program works for all participating contractors).

We hope working with us is such an enjoyable experience that you can’t wait to tell your friends and family. And in fact, as a way of saying thanks for singing our praises, you’ll receive a $50 check in the mail for anyone you refer to Home Energy Medics who has an energy audit performed. All they have to do is mention your name!

And as an added bonus, if that person eventually hires our team for retrofit work on their house, you’ll receive a second check… for $200!  


With more and more energy efficient and home performance incentives becoming available, it can be challenging for the average homeowner to educate themselves on which programs they qualify for, which contractors they need to work with to qualify, what the income qualifications for rebate programs are, and how they can maximize their savings.

At Home Energy Medics, our team of building science specialists is well-versed in the latest incentive changes and works with all major local incentive programs, so you can rest easy knowing your home is in good hands!

Looking for Duct Sealing? Did you know...

There is a substantial amount of energy loss when your HVAC system works overtime to make up for leaks and gaps in your ductwork. In addition to increased energy bills, the unnecessary strain on your system can significantly shorten its lifespan or lead to costly repairs. Air duct leaks can also create indoor air quality issues by allowing dust, allergens, and other pollutants easy access to the air circulating through your home. Having properly sealed ducts keeps these pollutants out of the air you breathe and balances temperatures, leaving your home feeling more comfortable.


I hired Home Energy Medics August of 2021 to soundproof my bedroom. I live in a condo and could hear the neighbors above and next door to me and it was disrupting my sleep.
