Kern Glass and the HERO Program!

In conjunction with a recently adopted initiative by several municipalities within the County of Kern (including Bakersfield), we are proud to announce our partnership with the HERO Program.

HERO_Logo_RegisteredContractor_Red_WEBThe HERO program is a brand new initiative available to area residents as an affordable way to make energy efficient window and door upgrades to your home. Use HERO to finance renovation projects that can increase your property value, lower your monthly utility bills, and contribute tomaking your community more energy independent.

Have you considered upgrading your windows? Energy Star estimates that replacing existing windows with Energy Star Qualified products can save between 7-15% on energy bills. For California, Energy Star estimates savings of between $71-$146 per year for a typical home, depending on whether you are replacing double pane or single pane windows. In addition, high efficiency windows can help eliminate cold drafts in winter and leaking air conditioning in the summer, and keep your home’s temperature more consistently comfortable. Special coatings on the glass will also protect your interior from fading and sun-bleaching.

If you’re interested in finding out more, applying for HERO is fast and simple. There is no cost to apply and in less than 2 minutes you can find out how much your home qualifies for. HERO offers low-fixed interest rates and flexible payment terms.

It’s our goal to turn inefficient homes into money-saving HERO homes, with increased property value. Visit the HERO program online, or contact one of our qualified Kern Glass estimators to get started today!
