A new heating or cooling system, insulation and air sealing represent a great investment in your home, but can also require some financial juggling especially if the need was unexpected. That’s why SmartHouse has established relationships with several quality programs to offer financing that is easily to apply for and fairly priced.
We’re proud to work with St. Louis County to offer low interest financing for energy efficiency improvements.
If you are a St. Louis County homeowner, then you are eligible to apply for an attractive, low interest loan to improve the comfort and energy efficiency of your home.
After an easy, web-based approval process, your 3.5% (up to 10 year term) unsecured, personal loan can be applied to eligible energy efficiency projects ranging from $2,500 – $15,000. Eligible improvements include energy audits, air-sealing, insulation, and high efficiency heating, cooling and water heating equipment.
The combination of low interest and a long payment term means that in many cases, your monthly energy savings may be greater than your monthly payment.
The SmartHouse team has participated in training for the St. Louis County SAVES (Sustainable and Verifiable Energy Savings) program and is an authorized contractor for installing the eligible improvements. Additionally, all auditors are certified energy auditors through the Building Performance Institute (BPI).
