CLEVELAND, July 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Eligible residential customers of Dominion East Ohio will find that they can save several ways with the company's Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® program. This 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. From now until August 31, the cost of the home energy assessment is half-off or just $25 each.
"Since 2010, this program has helped over 15,000 homeowners find small steps to save energy, and identify larger projects that could save them considerable money," said Jeff Murphy, Dominion East 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. Dominion East Ohio customers should call 1-877-287-3416 to schedule an assessment or visit deohpwes.com for program details and eligibility information. CLEAResult is administering the program.
