Your first step in the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program is to schedule an audit with a Building Performance Institute Certified Home Energy Expert. During your home’s audit, the Home Energy Expert will evaluate your heating/cooling systems, insulation and windows, and conduct a blower door test to detect air leaks that could be costing you money and making your home uncomfortable. While in your home, the Home Energy Expert may install up to $150 in energy-saving products at no additional cost to you. Products that may be installed include:
- LED bulbs (up to 14 per household)
- Efficient faucet aerators
- Electric water heater pipe insulation
- Water-saving showerheads
To get started, find a participating contractor near you and schedule your home performance audit.
The Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® and Quick Home Energy Checkup programs are available to customers of Potomac Edison as we monitor the coronavirus pandemic in Maryland. Participating contractors will follow health and safety guidelines when visiting your home by wearing face coverings, maintaining social distancing, using hand sanitizer, frequent hand washing, and disinfecting tools, equipment and devices before and after the visit.
