Get started with LEAP’s simple 4-step process for the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program:

 Step 1: Evaluate
An evaluation of your home’s issues is an important part of Home Performance with ENERGY STAR. This in-home visit includes looking for poor insulation, duct issues, air leakage, equipment and appliance condition, window integrity, and moisture & indoor air quality concerns. We’ll also help you understand the health, comfort and cost implications of your home’s condition. You’ll receive a list of potential upgrades so a local Home Performance with ENERGY STAR contractor can prepare an estimate for you.

Step 2: Finance
Rebates, low- or no-interest loans, and tax credits may be available depending on your area and the work to be done. We can help find options that best fit your needs and budget.

Step 3: Transform
A Home Performance with ENERGY STAR contractor performs the work you select. LEAP vets and works with only trusted, licensed contractors who consistently meet the highest installation standards. We then provide quality assurance checks to ensure that all work meets your specifications and satisfaction.

Step 4: Certify
An independent expert reviews the completed work to ensure its quality and then issues the U.S. Department of Energy’s Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Certificate.
