Learn how to increase the comfort of your home* and reduce energy costs with the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR®Program, available to Maryland residential customers of Potomac Edison for a fee of $100 (a $400 value).

*Mobile homes qualify for this program

This program will help you identify energy efficiency improvements that may qualify you for 75 percent of the costs — or up to $7,500** — to cover energy-saving home improvements, including:

  • Air sealing
  • Duct sealing
  • Insulation
  • HVAC equipment upgrades

A Home Energy Evaluation Can Determine:

Indoor air quality, Possible moisture issues, comfort related issues, durability, safety concerns and energy saving opportunities.

When we perform an energy audit we’re looking for air leakage, insulation levels and proper ventilation that affect the health, and the overall comfort and energy usage of your home.

 

Getting Started

  1. Contact us to schedule an energy audit.
  2. We’ll come to your location at a time that works for you.
  3. All of our inspection techniques are non-invasive, cutting-edge technology!

 

How do we Perform the Evaluation?

We rely on non-invasive, cutting-edge technology to find problem areas.  Some of our testing equipment includes:

  • The Blower Door– determines air exchange through the building shell. National data shows 20%-30% of a home’s energy is lost due to air infiltration.
  • The Duct Blaster– up to 25% of a home’s total energy bill can be attributed to leaky duct work into unconditioned spaces.
  • The Infrared Thermal Imaging Camera– identifies missing or poorly installed insulation.

 

How do you Prepare for an Evaluation?

There is minimal preparation for audits, such as setting the thermostat, opening all interior doors, etc. Hot Shotz will inform you of the necessary steps to be taken during the initial scheduling call.
