PSE offers floor insulation incentives, free duct sealing for electric customers living in manufactured homes

BELLEVUE — Air leakage and inadequate insulation are the primary causes of energy waste in most manufactured homes. For this reason, Puget Sound Energy will offer floor insulation incentives and free duct sealing designed to increase comfort and help customers manage their energy bills.

These energy-efficiency programs are available to PSE electric customers living in electrically heated manufactured homes.

PSE has teamed up with an authorized contractor to deliver the free duct sealing upgrades.

A certified specialist will seal the ductwork and ensure that heated air is delivered to the home most efficiently, typically reducing heating costs by 20 percent or more.

During the service, the contractor will also install free LED light bulbs, furnace air filters and high-performance energy-efficient showerheads — up to a $500 value — at no cost to eligible PSE customers.

Qualifying customers living in manufactured homes can also benefit from improved floor insulation.

Those interested in taking advantage of the floor insulation program can receive an incentive from PSE which covers up to two-thirds of the cost for floor insulation materials and installation.

To qualify, you must be a PSE electric customer living in a manufactured home primarily heated by electricity. Homeowners who have previously received PSE’s free manufactured home duct sealing upgrades are not eligible for the same service, but may qualify for the floor insulation incentive.

PSE’s authorized contractor will be going door-to-door with flyers to discuss these services with PSE customers. PSE customers can also request the service by calling 1-800-828-8440.
