Upon request, Progress Energy Florida will perform a free home energy inspection. To qualify for one or all of the rebates, measures must be recommended during the inspection. Eligible equipment and measures include heat pumps, duct maintenance, insulation improvements, window upgrades and roof upgrades. There is also an online Home Energy Check survey to facilitate this process. Customers may be eligible for an additional credit towards their electric bill if they install a high-efficiency electric heat pump and participate in Progress Energy’s insulation or duct check programs within 90 days.
