Rosemount, MN - As of September 1, 2013, homeowners intending to receive an air sealing and insulation rebate from Minnesota Energy Resources, must have the work done by an authorized and certified Minnesota Energy Resources contractor.
Each authorized contractor will have proof of authenticity to ensure quality installation work and rebate eligibility which will result in energy savings for the homeowner. The scope of the work that qualifies includes adding insulation and air sealing measures where cold air can penetrate to the interior of the residence.
Authorized insulation contractors must adhere to the Minnesota Energy Resources program requirements, have received the national Building Performance Institute (BPI) installer certification and agreed to random quality assurance inspections.
The goal is to make homes more energy efficient and ensure added value to the homeowner. The Minnesota Energy Resources installer requirement ensures the work is done properly with certified installers whose authorization qualifies for the program rebates.
