Is now a good time for a Weatherization Loan? - Carolina Country
February 2018

Older heat pumps tend to quit working when you need them most – on the coldest winter days. And if you’re like most people, you probably wait until they break to replace them because of the expense.

For almost 30 years, Brunswick Electric has been providing low-interest loans of up to $6,000 to qualified member households, and up to $10,000 to qualified member businesses, for energy efficiency improvements such as replacing heat pumps, windows and doors. We loaned more than $1 million just in 2017! Payments are generally spread over five years and are billed with your monthly power bill.

The process is simple:

  1. Choose your project. Visit for a list of qualifying projects.

  2. Contact us after you’ve obtained cost estimates and know how much you want to borrow.

  3. Complete a loan application. You’ll get an answer if you qualify very quickly, generally within 24 hours.

  4. Arrange for the work to be done.

  5. When the work is complete come to our office, sign the promissory note and we will pay your contractor.

Stop by any BEMC office, call us at (800) 842-5871 Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., or visit for more information.
