CEC offering energy audits at reduced price for limited time only | News
PERRY COUNTY, MO (KFVS) - For a limited time only, Citizens Electric is helping you save money on your electric bill in the New Year with a home energy audit.
The company is offering the service for a $50, or 75 percent off the regular price.
During a home energy audit, a certified technician will use a blower door, infrared camera and software program to analyze your home for energy hogs and air leaks. The electric company says air infiltration through unsealed cracks and inadequate insulation are the biggest sources of energy waste in homes today. No structure is built to be airtight; however, many homes cumulatively leak as much air as having a window open year-round.
After the audit, CEC will provide a report with observations and recommendations to improve your home’s energy efficiency and comfort. Citizens Electric will also reimburse you up to $50 towards the purchase of suggested upgrades, which could include increasing insulation, replacing an inefficient heat pump or installing a programmable thermostat.
Energy audits must be paid to CEC in advance. The cost is $50 for up to 3,000 square feet of conditioned space. If the auditor determines your square footage exceeds that amount, you will be billed 10 cents for each additional square foot.
Eligibility is limited to Citizens Electric members who use electricity for heating or electric water heating. Discount offer ends April 1, 2013.
