Ceiling Insulation Program

The Ceiling Insulation Rebate Program offers financial incentives to residential electric customers who meet guidelines regarding energy-efficiency improvements accomplished with ceiling insulation in their homes.

Why Insulation

Ceiling insulation is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to improve the energy efficiency of a home. It acts to reduce heat flow between the inside of the home and the outside. That means more heat gets trapped inside in the winter, and kept outside during the summer.

The most common types of ceiling insulation include spray foam, blow-in insulation and blanket insulation, although there are a variety of other types that may be more suitable for a home. Professionals can inspect homes and provide advice on which type would be most suitable, as well as how much is needed.

Just adding extra insulation to the ceiling in the attic of a home can save 10% to 50% on a utility bill, according to the Department of Energy. Over the course of a year, that can mean hundreds of dollars in heating and cooling savings, leading to a short payback period. Installing insulation in conditioned areas of a home previously not insulated will save even more.

How to Apply

To apply, an energy audit must be performed on the home prior to the addition of insulation to determine levels of existing insulation. Edmond Electric provides its' customers with FREE Home Energy Audits. Call 405-216-7608 today to get yours scheduled.*

Rebate Criteria

To qualify, ceiling insulation should be placed in the attic or roof space of the residence, between conditioned and unconditioned spaces. Insulation above garages does not qualify.

The insulation can be done by the homeowner or a professional. However, for spray foam insulation to qualify, it must be installed by a qualified professional.

Total finished insulation must be equal to or greater than 12 inches in depth, or have a value of R-38. Contact Edmond Electric to arrange for an inspection of the ceiling insulation within 90 days after the insulation. Documents required to be provided at the time of the inspection include a copy of the contractor invoice and/or an invoice/receipt for materials, as well as the audit report.

The total rebate amount will be based on the existing ceiling insulation R-value and after the additional insulation is added creates a total R-value of 38 as a minimum. If there are varying levels of R-values in the attic (before new insulation is added), the R-value of the largest area of the attic is the number that will be used to determine the rebate. 
 If existing R-value is  Then overall total rebate is
 R-0 to R-4 $500 
 R-5 to R-14 $300 
 R-15 to R-22 $250 
 R-23 + $0

The rebate will be issued as a check and the customer should expect to receive the rebate between 6 to 8 weeks after the inspection. Rebates are only available to residential customers. Customers will only be eligible to receive one rebate per 10 year period.

Rebates will be offered as long as funds are available.

Additional Criteria

Mobile homes will not be eligible for the rebates. New construction - meaning new homes or new additions to existing homes - are not eligible. Conversions of spaces to living spaces may qualify, provided the converted space is heated and cooled.

Each individual home in a multi-home building with a single roof can qualify for rebates, although apartment complexes are not eligible.

Homeowners who do their own installation may not include the cost of labor in their application.
