Pepco Home Energy Savings Program
Pepco's Home Energy Savings Program is a portfolio of programs promoting energy efficiency and conservation, including rebates, education and services. The program is designed around a consultative approach.
Rebates are available for insulation, HVAC, thermostats, windows, doors and hot water heaters. Participating in the Pepco residential Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® Program (the Program) will guide you to the maximum rebate amount available to you for each home performance service.
The initial qualifier for rebates is to get a Pepco home energy audit at the discounted price of $100 (normally $400). GET IT DONE!
For $100, you get a comprehensive Home Energy Assessment from a trained, professional contractor, including no cost installation of energy savings measures and details on potential improvements.
In partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the Pepco rebate program is offering homeowners a comprehensive assistance package designed to increase awareness of and demand for building performance measures.
If you live in Pepco's service territory, then The Program is designed to improve your home's energy performance, durability, comfort and, health and safety.
Pepco Energy Rebates - Where to Start
Lowering energy usage in a Maryland residential home depends mostly on reducing heating and cooling costs. The best way to achieve a decrease is to seal up your home's "shell".
Once the building shell is tighter with air sealing and insulation in the right places it is no surprise that your HVAC systems will be much more efficient and your family's overall comfort will be improved.
Pepco energy rebates are available for air sealing and insulation and are revealed once the energy audit is complete. Air sealing and insulation are considered the most important measures to complete to achieve energy efficiency - before windows, doors and replacing older HVAC.
Treating the needs of your home with the most cost-effective solutions for the best payback is the goal of an energy audit and the Pepco Home Energy Savers rebate program.
Schedule your comprehensive Pepco home energy audit to have your home assessed.
The energy audit will determine exactly what rebates apply to your home.

Home Performance with ENERGY STARŪ
The best way to achieve comfort, efficiency and healthy indoor air quality is to look at each part.
Old Way of Thinking About Insulation
Similar to Pluto no longer having a place amongst the major planets, the world of insulation is likely to be demoted.
As it turns out, insulation has been installed incorrectly for a very long time.
Don't simply think that if you see insulation in the attic that you have everything "covered".
Insulation, in order to be effective, must be accompanied by an air barrier. Air barriers take many forms. Insulation that is subjected to air flow will not meet the listed R-value on the label.
Qualifying for Pepco insulation rebates depends on a correctly installed insulation project.
A trained Pepco energy auditor can determine where weaknesses exist in your house's shell in order to prescribe proper treatment and maximize your return on investment.
Should you get a Pepco energy audit?
Is Your Home a Good Candidate for the Audit?
Maybe getting an audit would not open Pepco rebates to you for some reason.
A few key observations can usually guide your decision.
Get right to it and get your Pepco energy audit. Like one customer that had the audit done said:
"You have been working non-stop Eric. Are you sure it is only $100 for the energy audit?
Contract with Hometrust
Any contracted work scope has to start from an eligible HPwES audit and corresponding findings. Prior to paying out the rebates, Pepco reserves the right to inspect the work for meeting all applicable building codes, zoning laws, local, state and federal requirements; and other relevant requirements. Any program participants home may be selected for a quality control post-installation inspection by Pepco.
