At Home with Lisa: Upgrade your home, get a rebate

The other day I learned that my sister is getting a ductless heat pump for her home. She and her husband already have a furnace, but they want to be a little more energy efficient. They also like that they can get a rebate through Avista for getting the work done.

If some of your home improvements include upgrading to something more energy efficient, check out Avista’s website to see if you qualify for a rebate. In Washington state, you can get rebates for new, energy efficient:

For many of these projects you must have a contractor complete the installation. You can submit the application online or you can download the form from Avista’s website and send it through the postal service.

To pre-qualify for your project, you can call Avista at (800) 227-9187, or you can email them at

Lisa, an Avista customer, bought her 1910 house because she loved the old-world character, some of which doesn’t make her house very energy efficient. Lisa is sharing her experience on taking some simple do-it-yourself improvements to inspire others to do the same. You’ll find her stories right here every Tuesday morning.
