For Alliant Energy's residential customers in Iowa
Every year, the average American home loses $150 worth of energy through inefficient appliances, lack of insulation or drafty windows and doors.
As much as 15 percent of the energy you pay for escapes from your home through cracks and gaps in the walls and attic. Upgrading your attic insulation to 12 inches can reduce your heating costs by 30 percent.
And a $50 investment in weatherizing materials can help you save $150 on your heating bills - in just one winter! Don't let that energy escape one more day.

Alliant Energy will pay for a portion of the cost of upgrading your ceiling, foundation and in-wall insulation: 70 percent of the home assessors's estimated cost of contract installation labor and equipment, to install the recommended amount of insulation, up to a maximum of $750 for each insulation type.
Alliant Energy will also pay for a portion of the cost of home sealing, such as caulking and weather stripping: 70 percent of the total cost of contract labor, materials and equipment, up to a maximum of $200.
Special note for business customers: All insulation claims will be subject to a post-installation project verification, this is a pre-requisite for the incentive payment. Assessments will be scheduled with your company after the incentive claim form is received and payment will be issued upon receipt of your verification report.

- A Home Energy Assessment must be completed before insulation and sealing projects can qualify for rebates.
- Alliant Energy must supply your home's primary heating energy. The primary heating source is the heating equipment permanently installed in your home (furnace, boiler, etc.), all other heating sources (space heater, corn stoves, etc.) are considered supplemental.
- Your home must have been built before January 1, 2003.
- If you are a renter, you must have your property owners approval. (Alliant Energy would be happy to contact your home's owner for approval).
When your Home Energy Assessment is complete, your energy specialist will give you a claim form and will include the estimated cost of installing the recommended level of insulation. Whether you hire an insulation professional or complete the job yourself, fill out the claim form, attach a copy of your itemized receipt (including equipment rental cost) and send it to us.
