Long winters here in Vermont can put a strain on anyone’s budget! Combating the cold weather and frigid temps can result in high costs associated with heating your home or business over the long winter months. Besides the many energy-efficient products we sell to help reduce fuel consumption while still keeping you warm, there are a number of other ways to help you save costs and afford upgrades:

Heat Saver Loan

The Heat Saver Loan is a finance product available through through Efficiency Vermont to help Vermonters improve the energy efficiency of their homes. The loan offers attractive financing for homeowners looking to overcome up-front expenses to upgrade home energy performance and equipment and save money. Interest rates are based on an applicant’s household income and loan terms. Samples A, B and C below show three projects for your comparison with rebates applied and also what the low monthly heat saver loan payment would be, thus making a new high-efficiency system quite affordable. Just think of what you’ll save each month in fuel and electricity costs! Call your local Fred’s Energy office today for a FREE, no obligation estimate.

Efficiency Excellence Network

As a member of the Efficiency Excellence Network (EEN), Fred’s Energy has advanced training in energy efficiency services and can pinpoint where and why your home or business is losing energy – and how to correct it in a way that lowers your monthly energy bills. Rebates and incentive programs are available for energy efficiency home improvements when completed by an EEN residential heating system contractor.
