CLEVELAND, July 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Dominion Energy Ohio is offering home energy assessments for just $25 to eligible residential customers, providing them ways to save money year-round on home cooling and heating costs. The audits are available through the company's Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® program, administered by CLEAResult
The program includes a home energy assessment to help diagnose high utility usage and other home comfort issues, and then provides rebates of up to $1,250 for completion of recommended energy-efficiency improvements. Dominion Energy Ohio customers may call 1-877-287-3416 to schedule an assessment or visit deohpwes.com for program details and eligibility information.
"This program has helped more than 15,000 homeowners since 2010 to find small steps to save energy, and identify larger projects that could save them considerable money," said Jeff Murphy, Dominion Energy Ohio vice president and general manager. "We're excited to offer a special summer deal on the cost of a home energy assessment."
The assessment is the first step in the program. An energy auditor visits customers' homes to help pinpoint energy losses through diagnostic testing and a professional evaluation. Following the energy assessment, customers receive a customized energy report with the results, plus recommendations and rebates available through the program.
Recommended improvements typically include air sealing and insulation, HVAC equipment upgrades, window and door replacements, plus much more. These improvements can help customers decrease utility bills, while increasing home comfort, safety, durability and resale value.
Residential customers also may receive such products as a programmable thermostat or carbon monoxide detector, high-efficiency showerheads and water-saving faucet aerators at no cost (a $100 value).
Customers who could most benefit from an energy assessment are those who may be experiencing drafts and fluctuating room temperatures, moisture and mold issues or those who have inefficient cooling and heating equipment in an older or poorly-built home.
