Save Money This Spring With Home Energy Improvements!

If you are looking to cut your energy bills or just to improve the comfort of your home year round, take a look at New Jersey’s Clean Energy Program! This spring, NJ homeowners can save money and improve their home’s energy usage and comfort with the incentives from the program’s Home Performance with Energy Star (HPeWS) promotion.

Homeowners can obtain rebates as well as loans to perform energy improvements on their home such as air sealing, insulation, hot water heaters, furnaces, and air conditioners.

The first step to obtaining these incentives is to get an energy audit from A&E Construction, a certified contractor.

With over 25 years of experience in building and construction, A&E has performed numerous home energy improvements in the local Princeton area, including Hamilton, Ewing, Lawrenceville, Pennington, and Hopewell. Our team of experts can guide you through the process of making energy improvements as well as utilizing all financial incentives available through HPeWS.

The Energy Audit is a series of tests to assess the health and efficiency of your home. During the audit A&E’s auditor will also test the efficiency and performance of your appliances.

After the audit, we will provide a comprehensive and detailed report of your home's energy losses or problems outlining recommended measures as well as how to qualify for the financial incentives of the HPeWS program.

A strong advantage of selecting A&E to perform your energy improvements is that we bring excellent knowledge of your home’s construction and systems, thus being able to better analyze where energy is lost and how to make the most out of the improvement. 

In addition to being in our 4th year participating in the HPeWS program, A&E Construction is a Building Performance Institute (BPI) certified contractor with a qualified team. Our BPI certified energy professionals are trained and certified in building analyst, envelope, heating, air conditioning & heat pump, and whole house air leakage.
