Rebates & Financing Options

At Total Home Performance, we take pride in making homes along the Eastern Shore more efficient with upgrades like attic insulation and crawl space encapsulation. In fact, in the area served by Delmarva Power, we have helped homeowners save the most kWh each year since 2011!

As a participating contractor with Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® and the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) here in Maryland, we help homeowners in the Talbot County area save money when they make energy saving home improvements.

The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (IRA) Tax Credits and Rebates for Energy Efficiency Upgrades

25C Tax Credit

Signed into federal law in 2022, the IRA includes several incentives for homeowners looking to make energy efficiency home performance upgrades. One is an overhaul of the 25C federal tax credit, now known as the Energy Efficient Home Improvement Credit. The IRA upgraded this credit, and taxpayers can now receive a federal tax credit equal to 30% of the cost of services including: 

Other IRA Rebate Programs 

In addition to the Energy Efficient Home Improvement Credit, the Inflation Reduction Act created two new rebate programs (HOMES and HEEHR) to help offset the costs of energy-efficient upgrades for homeowners. Individual states will be responsible for setting up these rebate programs, and while the rebates aren’t available yet, Total Home Performance will keep you updated as more details become available. 

Home Owner Managing Energy Savings Rebate Program (HOMES) 

The HOMES program provides rebates for home energy efficiency retrofits that show modeled energy savings above 20%. Eligible services include air sealing, insulation, HVAC upgrades, and more. 

High-Efficiency Electric Home Rebate Program (HEEHR)  

The HEEHR program provides rebates for home electrification upgrades, as well as energy efficiency upgrades. These rebates will only be available to low and moderate-income households.
