Quick Home Energy Check-up

Quick Home Energy Check-Up

In an effort to provide basic energy upgrades and education to large numbers of Maryland ratepayers, the Maryland Public Service Commission ordered utilities to provide the Quick Home Energy Check-Up at
NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE to your existing utility service.

 

During a QHEC, your ecobeco energy auditor will install CFL Lighting and other energy-saving and water-saving measures. Most home owners can save over $100 per year in electricity and another $50 per year in water and sewer costs. Over the life of these measures, the average home owner will save over $1,300. Items installed vary by utility.

 

***As of October 13, 2014, ecobeco now provides Home Energy Check-Ups at no cost to you in the Dominion Virginia Power Service Area. See details below.***

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Should I get a QHEC or a Comprehensive Energy Audit?
The Comprehensive Energy Audit now includes the same direct install measures as the QHEC.  There is no substitute for the thoroughness and instrumented testing done in a Comprehensive Energy Audit, and for anyone looking to make a change the Comprehensive Energy Audit should be your first choice.  For people who are feeling budget constrained, or who feel they will not be making any improvements over the next year or two, the QHEC is a good way to get started on saving energy and to get educated on Pepco's other programs.

Can I get both?
If you have had a QHEC, you definitely can get a Comprehensive Energy Audit so you become eligible for 50% rebates up to $2,000 per household.

Can ecobeco install measures for me during my Comprehensive Energy Audit or Test-Out?
While ecobeco can install additional measures during a Comprehensive Energy Audit, we are not allowed to install measures during your Test-Out.
