Energy Audit per EPA

 

According to the EPA Local Residential Energy Efficiency website, existing residential homes typically offer several opportunities for energy efficiency improvement.  To help enhance the energy efficiency of homes in different areas, including Howard County Maryland, local governments recommend homeowners get a comprehensive home energy audit.  The EPA says  "energy audits assess how much energy a home consumes and evaluates measures to make the home more energy efficient".

Home Performance w ENERGY STAR® (HPwES)


Home Performance is considering how all of the parts of a home work together and the best way to achieve comfort, efficiency and a healthy indoor air environment is to consider all of the pieces of the puzzle.

According to the EPA website on local residential energy, A key strategy of HPwES is to empower the homeowner with information (via an audit) and create a clear pathway for acting on recommendations and implement the recommended measures. 

Eligibility



Normally, a comprehensive audit costs $400.  For the HPwES program through BGE, eligible Howard County customers only pay $100!

The offer for the $100 audit is valid for BGE customers with a residential account that applies though BGE's HPwES Program only. 

The customer must be receiving electric and/or natural gas service from BGE to their Howard County home. 

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

How to Participate



According to BGEsmartenergy.com, the first step to getting an energy audit in Howard County is to select a participating contractor and schedule a comprehensive home energy audit.  The cost is $100 ($400 value). 

Once the audit is complete, the contractor will input the information into the modeling software to determine what rebates the home is eligible for and how much energy will be saved if the measures are completed as prescribed.  

How Rebates Work



Home "retrofits" can be cost effective, improve comfort, reduce energy usage and create a better indoor air quality home environment - especially when they are done right!

Maryland wants you get the work done by trained professionals that understand the building science concepts for measurable results. 

After following the program guidelines, your rebate check will be sent to your Howard County Maryland home.
