Weatherization – Insulation, Doors & Windows


UEC members who want to install energy efficient weatherization measures, such as windows, doors or insulation, may be eligible to participate in Umatilla Electric’s Weatherization Program.  A FREE home energy audit is required. Weatherization measures may be installed by one of the installers listed on our Participating Installer list or by the homeowner. This program may be changed or terminated without prior notice.

After the audit is complete, contact one or more participating installer to schedule a bid appointment.  When you have made your decision, contact UEC to let us know which installer you prefer. To obtain a rebate for your new upgrades, follow the process outlined below:

Step 1: Have UEC complete a Free Home Energy Audit

Step 2: Compare multiple bids from participating installers (see list below). If you would like take advantage of our 1.99 percent Energy Saver Loan program, submit a request at this point.

Step 3: Installation

Step 4: Receive your rebate.

Insulation

UEC’s Energy Efficiency Program offers a cash rebate to members that install qualifying insulation in their homes. Insulation is the barrier that prevents heat from leaving or entering your home, depending on the season. Any heating or cooling system does not have to work as hard to maintain the thermostat setting. Insulation’s ability to resist heat transfer is measured in R-values. Larger R-values better resist gaining or losing heat.

Attic Insulation

Attic insulation provides the greatest barrier against heat loss. Improving attic insulation is the most effective way to reduce heat transfer and lower your energy consumption.

Rebate Requirements

To qualify for a rebate, new attic insulation must meet the following requirements:

  • Installed by a Participating Installer
  • Installed to BPA’s 2016 Residential Weatherization Specifications
  • Site Built
    • Up to R49
  • Manufactured Homes
    • Up to R30 or maximum possible
  • Installed in a home primarily heated with:
    • Heat Pump
    • Electric Forced-Air Furnace
    • Electric Baseboard
    • Electric Space Heaters
    • Wood Stove
    • Pellet Stove

Rebate Payment

UEC will pay for new attic insulation at the following schedule:

Single Family < R38 $0.75 per ft^2
Single Family > R38 $0.25 per ft^2
Manufactured Home < R19 $0.75 per ft^2
Manufactured Home > R19 $0.25 per ft^2

Floor Insulation

Though often overlooked, floor insulation helps to complete the thermal envelope around a home. Ensuring proper amount of insulation under the floor ensures the least possible heat gained or lost.

Rebate Requirements

To qualify for a rebate, new floor insulation must meet the following requirements:

  • Installed by a Participating Installer
  • Installed to BPA’s 2016 Residential Weatherization Specifications
  • Site Built
    • Up to R30
  • Manufactured Homes
    • Up to R22 or maximum possible
  • Installed in a home primarily heated with:
    • Heat Pump
    • Electric Forced-Air Furnace
    • Electric Baseboard
    • Electric Space Heaters
    • Wood Stove
    • Pellet Stove

Rebate Payment

UEC will pay for new floor insulation at the following schedule:

Single Family < R19 $0.75 per ft^2
Single Family > R19 $0.25 per ft^2
Manufactured Home < R19 $0.75 per ft^2
Manufactured Home > R19 $0.25 per ft^2

Windows

UEC’s Energy Efficiency Program offers a cash rebate to members that install qualifying windows in their homes. Windows are part of the barrier that prevents heat from leaving or entering your home, depending on the season. Any heating or cooling system does not have to work as hard to maintain the thermostat setting with energy efficient vinyl double pane windows. A window’s ability to resist heat transfer is measured in U-factor. Lower U-factors better resist gaining or losing heat.

Rebate Requirements

To qualify for a rebate, new windows must meet the following requirements:

  • Installed by a Participating Installer
  • Installed to BPA’s 2016 Residential Weatherization Specifications
  • Replace existing:
    • Wood Single Pane Windows
    • Metal Single Pane Windows
    • Metal Double Pane Windows
  • Installed in a home primarily heated with:
    • Heat Pump
    • Electric Forced-Air Furnace
    • Electric Baseboard
    • Electric Space Heaters

Rebate Payment

UEC will pay for new vinyl double pane windows at the following schedule:

Single Family – Single Pane Metal $6 per ft^2
Single Family – Double Pane Metal $6 per ft^2
Single Family – Single Pane Wood $6 per ft^2
Manufactured Home – Single/Double Pane Metal $6 per ft^2

Doors

UEC’s Energy Efficiency Program offers a cash rebate to members that install qualifying doors in their homes. Doors are part of the barrier that prevents heat from leaving or entering your home, depending on the season. Any heating or cooling system does not have to work as hard to maintain the thermostat setting with energy efficient insulated doors.

Rebate Requirements

To qualify for a rebate, new windows must meet the following requirements:

  • EnergyStar rated
  • Completed UEC Door Rebate Application form
  • Include a dated receipt or invoice of purchase
  • Purchased within the last 6 months
