Obama Announces Cash for Caulkers Program

cash-for-caulkers
Today, President Obama announced the details of the female levitra pills HOMESTAR program, otherwise known as "Cash for Caulkers."  The president said the home retrofit program would create construction jobs, reduce the nation's energy use equal to the output of three coal power plants, save participating households $200-$500 per year in energy costs and buy cialis tadalafil support energy efficiency innovation.

The program basically includes rebates for energy efficiency improvements that are given at the time of purchase, much like how "Cash for Clunkers" worked.  Here are some details of the program.

  • Small-scale upgrades like insulation, duct sealing, water heaters, HVAC units, windows, roofing and doors would be eligible for 50 percent rebates up to $1,500 or combined upgrade rebates of up to $3,000.
  • Entire-home retrofits would be eligible for a rebate of $3,000 towards an energy audit and upgrades amounting to 20 percent energy savings.  Any savings over that would be eligible for more rebates.
  • Safeguards would be put in place to ensure that the upgrades actually improve efficiency:  all contractors must be certified in energy efficient installations and independent auditors will perform surveys to make sure upgrades were installed correctly and are saving energy.
  • The program would also help state and local governments create financing options for these retrofits so more consumers can participate.

The program will have to get through Congress, but hopefully with the promise of www.syncom.nl boosting the www.adime.es economy and creating jobs, it will be attractive enough to order viagra from canada legislators to pass.

Good idea, but need to be (politically) careful!
written by Tom Swann, March 02, 2010
n Australia we recently had a massive scandal over which the relevant Minister was demoted because of house fires and levitra cheap fast deaths due to ceiling insulation provided under a govt program.

Total political beat up that could have been prepared for.

Reality is that less fires were caused per insulation than in the past, they instituted regulations where there previously were none, etcetc...

Cash for Caulkers is a great help
written by Suzanne, April 25, 2010
With the cash for caulkers made by the President one's idea in choosing materials for a green building is that, it must be an energy efficient product. Green products such as window tints would be a great idea in pursuing green buildings or even green homes and green cars. While most window films are for reducing solar heat gain in the summer, low-e films both block summer heat and improve winter heat retention. Green oriented sites such as www.TintBuyer.com discuss how window tints can be labeled as one of how to get viagra online the most effective way to conserve energy consumption for less compared to other green related technology. TitntBuyer.com can also help you get LEED points for window film and find a dealer near your area.

Barack Obama's book, "The Audacity of Hope," is known for a catchy title. It has a taste of bravery combined with confidence. Absolutely nothing Pollyanna regarding it. I may not support everything he tells, but he's our president, and for me, he inspires reliance. Which could do the best choice buy cialis online usa more for a country than any number of backroom deals. Hope gives us energy, and energy gets us through trying times.

The best part of this plan is that it will jump start an industry to viagra no rx required retrofit inefficient homes. The average home has the viagra en gel opportunity for 30% improvement in the energy efficiency but neither the average homeowner nor contractor can do it.

More of this Please!

This is an excellent plan. I think if the look here buying viagra online canada government continues with plans geared towards both creating jobs that also assist in helping the environment or at least eco-conscious jobs it will go a long way. In fact that should be the only thing they should be doing as this point.

If every job program they create is focused on Eco-conscious advancement in some area it will be a huge improvement in the entire job infrastructure. The markets have crashed already they may as well take a new approach that builds up from a deeper level that's more full-filling for not just peoples pockets but for creating a future on this planet. We don't have the luxury of waiting anymore.

We have had schemes like this in Australia with subsidies for insulation and solar power panels. Only wish they'd make it more inclusive like this scheme

Wish we had this for where I live. Things fall apart a lot often, and electricity doesn't come cheap too. This will certainly lighten up the load for consumer spending.

More toxic Caulking in Homes
written by Scalar, May 08, 2011
It's nice to see that the government wants to http://www.diabetes.org.br/best-online-generic-viagra create more jobs for construction workers and reduce the burden of it's cool non generic viagra home owner expenses, but only if they could do it in a non-toxic way. I used to caulk windows and theglobalobservatory.org doors a long time ago but found that the materials were very toxic, both for the worker and the home owner.

Finally some helpful support
written by juicers, May 17, 2011
I would like to think this would be helpful and it will save money in the long run...but I agree with the comment above as caulking is very toxic. Until they come out with a better compound to insulate I think its still a double edged sword.
