Is Getting a BGE Home Energy Audit Right for You?

Home Energy Audit Maryland per the EPA

According to the EPA, existing houses offer several opportunities for energy efficient improvements. To make houses more energy efficient the government recommends a home energy audit.

The EPA says "energy audits assess how much energy a home consumes. It also evaluates measures to make the home more energy efficient".

Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® (HPwES)

Home Performance is to consider how the parts of a home work together.

The best way to achieve comfort, efficiency and healthy indoor air quality is to look at each part.

According to the EPA, one of the main strategies of HPwES is to educate homeowners through the home energy audit. The owner along with the auditor can create a clear pathway for making improvements.

BGE Energy Audit Eligibility in Maryland

Due to the amount of hard work, a comprehensive audit normally costs $400. For the HPwES program through BGE, eligible customers only pay $100!

The $100 BGE energy audit is valid for BGE customers with an active account. The customer must apply through BGE's HPwES Program.

The customer must be receiving electric and/or natural gas service from BGE.

The offer is not valid for new construction, multi-family dwellings or commercial buildings.

How to Participate in the BGE Energy Audit Program

BGE makes this very easy!  The first step to get an energy audit is to select a participating contractor of your choice. You can schedule a BGE energy audit with Hometrust here.

The cost is $100 ($400 value).

Once the BGE energy audit is complete the data will get entered into the modeling software. The program calculates eligible rebates. It also calculates how much energy you can save if you get the work done as prescribed.

How BGE Rebates Work in Maryland

Home "retrofits" are improvements that your auditor discovered during the audit. Retrofits improve comfort, reduce energy usage and create better indoor air quality.

Maryland provides incentives to off-set retrofit costs. 

After verifying that the house has achieved the program goal a rebate check is the only item left. Your approved contractor can discuss payment options with you.

Maryland Energy Audit: Two Benefits

A comprehensive home energy audit in Maryland through the Home Performance with Energy Star® program and BGE will cost you $100. BGE Energy Audit

A BGE energy audit is a key that can unlock two great things:  

1. Secret ways to improve comfort and energy efficiency

2. Incentives through the state of Maryland to offset your costs

Considering the fact that the refrigerator repair company will charge you $80 just to walk through your door, a Maryland home energy audit is well worth it!

What to Expect from a BGE Energy Audit

A comprehensive BGE energy audit can guide you to energy savings and comfort. If you are not sure what improvement should be next, a BGE energy audit can set a clear path for you.

How Long?  On average, a BGE energy audit takes about three hours to complete.  You must be home during the audit, however you are not required to follow the technician the entire time.  Each auditor has their own style.  Hometrust will spend about fifteen minutes in the beginning with you and thirty minutes at the end of your Maryland home energy audit.  We believe that is enough time to thoroughly explain our procedure and our findings.

Too many Maryland home energy audits fall short on customer experience. A BGE energy audit in Maryland should be interactive and enlightening. It should uncover ways to improve comfort, energy efficiency and indoor air quality.
