We encourage our neighbors on the Kenai Peninsula to undertake the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation's (AHFC) energy rebate program. We just completed the process, and are huge fans.
With the help and guidance of Central Alaska Engineering Company, our energy rater, we found ways to realize both immediate and long-term energy savings by upgrading our boiler, hot water heater, and insulation, and by undertaking other fairly simple steps. We utilized the professional services and products of M & J Plumbing, and found great advice and assistance from the folks at Spenard Builders Supply and Home Depot for the work we were able to do ourselves.
The staff at AHFC processed the reports and rebate checks quickly and efficiently. The rebate largely offset the bulk of our initial investment. Our final investment in these improvements will prove to be very modest compared to the benefits we expect to receive both day-to-day, and should we ever put our home on the market.
