Charlottesville’s Utilities Department is offering a $200 attic insulation rebate.
Upgrading attic insulation is a cost effective way to improve energy efficiency and lower heating and cooling bills, according to a press release.
More than 21,000 homes in the city were built before 1970, when the state implemented code requirements for insulation, and may be under-insulated, the release says.
To receive the rebate, customers must be the home or rental property owner, use natural gas as a primary source of home heating, single-family homes only, and the house must have attic insulation of R-30 or less and the ending R-value must be R-38 or greater.
