Site-Built Home Duct Sealing

Sealing ductwork in site-built homes can reduce energy waste by as much as 20 percent. Chelan County PUD offers a $500 rebate for duct sealing in existing homes.

Contractors performing the work must be certified by Performance Tested Comfort Systems (PTCS), a regional program promoting quality installation of high efficiency heat pumps and duct sealing to ensure energy savings and comfort.

Benefits of PTCS duct sealing include:

  • Reduced energy waste
  • Increased year-round comfort, especially in rooms that are too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter
  • Improved air quality

To be eligible for the rebate, the ducts in your home must be in the attic or crawlspace.

PTCS technicians are trained and certified to seal leaky duct work to ensure that the HVAC system delivers conditioned air where it's needed inside the home, not to the attic or crawlspace. Find a PTCS contractor.  Have your contractor fill out this form at the time of installation, then submit the form to Chelan County PUD. Rebate applications must be submitted within six months of duct-sealing project completion.

Your contractor will bill you for the duct sealing. You'll receive an incentive check in the mail from the PUD.
