How It Works

Step 1: Sign Up for an Energy Audit

It only costs $100 to get an energy audit. We say "only" because getting an audit results in people saving an average of $230 per year on their energy bills! So it’s less of a cost and more of an investment.Our sponsors help keep your costs low.

Step 2: Conducting The Energy Audit

A professional assessor will come to your home and perform a thorough audit and show you exactly where and how your home is wasting energy. You’ll also get some easy upgrades free of charge, like energy-efficient light bulbs, faucet aerators and a programmable thermostat.

Finally, our expert will prepare a full report for you detailing more ways to save energy, save money and further improve your home.

Step 3: Home Improvements

Suggested improvements can range from small (making sure all windows are closed tightly) to big (installing a new furnace). Our team gives you recommendations, and any upgrades that you would make are entirely up to you.

Our rebates and financing make it easy to make any home improvements you choose. You can get up to $3,000 in rebates, and we’ll even file the paperwork! Or, if you have a dream project, we could help with up to $20,000 in financing, with rates as low as 0% APR! Get the details.

Step 4: Enjoy Comfortable Savings

Not only will an energy audit help make your home more efficient, it will also make it more comfortable, so you can enjoy the savings! Every little thing you upgrade, from insulation to your water heater, can have a huge effect on your energy bill. So kick back and watch the meter slow down.
