HARRISBURG, Pa. — Contractors in Pennsylvania that install energy efficiency home improvements are encouraged to attend a free seminar that will feature important information about KeystoneHELP, the state’s official Energy Star HVAC and home improvement financing plan.
Originally launched statewide in 2006, KeystoneHELP is a public/private partnership that allowed approximately 14,000 homeowners to affordably finance a range of home improvements, including HVAC equipment, water heaters, insulation, and more. The program recently relaunched with higher loan amounts now available to homeowners.
KeystoneHELP’s below market, longer term, unsecured financing, can help Pennsylvania homeowners to affordably improve the energy efficiency of their homes. For loan amounts from $2,500 to $20,000, KeystoneHELP requires no home equity, has loan terms of up to 10 years, and no closing costs.
Contractors can offer their customers KeystoneHELP as a fixed rate alternative to higher rate credit cards or other financing methods. Contractors must be approved by Renew Financial to perform work under the program. Information on how to become an approved KeystoneHELP contractor will be available at the informational gatherings.
At the seminars, contractors will learn about the market opportunity for energy upgrades throughout the state, get program updates, and details on KeystoneHELP’s new customer marketing programs that contractors can use in sales efforts.
Several seminars will be held during July. For more information and to register for one of the seminars, click here.
