As I'm writing this, I have a house full of noisy guys, dragging hoses through my hallways, climbing ladders in the hallway, shooting new insulation into our attic and possibly passing judgment on the state of our home.

How did I get into this situation, you ask? Well... it was quite easy. Did you know that Questar Gas and Rocky Mountain Power are offering rebates on insulation upgrades? And if you have both utility companies, the rebates will cover up to 100% of the cost? Sounds fishy, but it's true. The ulterior motive for both power companies is this: if they can save power here (by helping homes to be more energy-efficient) they can sell the power elsewhere (like California). They must be making a good profit from it because the rebates are excellent.

Whatever their reasoning, this sounded like a good deal. Especially since our home is a little older and could definitely use some upgrades in this department. A friend of ours - the handsome and talented Devin - measured the square footage, estimated the cost and helped us fill out all the rebate forms. Quite painless. You do have to pay for it up front, responsibly and correctly mail in your rebate forms and wait the 6-8 week processing time. I'm hoping that it all works out OK but from everyone I've talked to, it seems legitimate and awesome. Crossing my fingers!

If you are a homeowner in the Utah/Salt Lake/Davis county area and are interested in this great rebate program, please give Devin a call! E-mail me at joesgirljeri {at} gmail {dot} com and I'll give you his contact info.

I have an appointment tomorrow for mine to be checked. My home is ten years old so we'll see.

Everything is more expensive here in California. Darn!
