Ever heard of the HERO Program? No? You are not alone. Most homeowners are not aware of the program that helps finance energy saving HVAC equipment through a line item in your property taxes. HERO stands for Home Energy Renovation Opportunity. Financing for this program is different from other financing programs because approval is based on the equity in your home and your debt payment history, not your credit score. Homeowners can use the HERO Program for 100% of the purchase and installation costs (unless you are installing it yourself. HERO does not cover the cost of installing the equipment yourself but will cover the installation cost for a registered HERO installation company) and rates are fixed or flexible with 5-25 year terms. The terms will be dependent on the improvements and the city/state of your home. Consult your tax advisors, as there may be tax deduction benefits for using the HERO Program as well.
