U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA): On February 1, 2022, the EPA launched the ENERGY STAR Home Upgrade, a series of six home improvements designed to deliver significant energy and cost savings. The upgrades include:

  • An ENERGY STAR-certified air source heat pump for clean and efficient heating and cooling
  • An ENERGY STAR-certified heat pump water heater for super-efficient hot water
  • An ENERGY STAR-certified smart thermostat with smart climate controls
  • High-performing ENERGY STAR-certified windows and storm windows
  • A well-insulated and sealed attic
  • An electric vehicle charger-ready home

Under the program, families can perform upgrades on a schedule that works for them and as equipment needs to be replaced. The EPA aims to make these improvements available to households nationwide.
