Improve Your Home's Comfort, Energy Efficiency, Durability and Safety While Lowering Energy Bills
The Energy Audit
greeNEWit's Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® Energy Audit is a comprehensive assessment of your home and its systems in order to determine how energy is being used in your home and identify specific opportunities for improvement.
Our energy auditors are specially trained to understand how your home operates. During the audit, they will inspect your home and use diagnostic testing such as a blower door test and infrared camera imaging to measure the performance of heating and cooling systems, appliances, insulation levels, and how air is leaking in and out of your house.
In addition to the Home Performance Energy Audit, we’ll get you saving right away by installing energy saving measures with your permission at no additional cost. These include a variety of efficient lighting and plumbing fixtures that save our customers an average of more than $100 every year!
Making the Improvements
Once the energy audit is complete, you'll receive a full written report of our detailed findings. Your audit report is designed to help you prioritize energy efficiency opportunities in your home and will cover observations and recommendations pertaining to:
- Health and Safety
- Air Leakage
- Heating and Cooling System(s)
- Water Heating
- Lighting and Appliances
- Behavioral Improvements
We’ll also help you take the next steps by providing a cost estimate of insulation and air sealing recommendations (often the biggest bang for your buck) and connect you with contractors that can perform work on your building shell, HVAC systems, water heater, windows and doors, and more.
How Much Does it Cost?
Through the EmPower Maryland Program, Maryland customers pay only $100 for a Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® Audit*. The price includes installation of energy saving measures that can save you over $100 per year in utility costs.
Upgrades That Pay You Back
In addition to the money you'll save from reduced energy use, you may be eligible for rebates and tax credits (up to $3,800 for BGE and Pepco customers) to help offset the cost of the improvements.
