Home Energy Savings Program Focuses on Glen Ellyn

As announced in today's Village of Glen Ellyn e-Newsletter, a new Home Energy Savings Program

The Home Energy Savings Program is a joint program offered to customers of both Nicor Gas and ComEd living in single family homes. The program offers a comprehensive home energy savings assessment that will evaluate opportunities for energy efficiency upgrades and provides financial incentives for completing those upgrades. A trained, Building Performance Institute (BPI) - certified Energy Advisor will conduct the assessment for a cost of $99.

This assessment includes:

Complete review of the home's HVAC, hot water, lighting, insulation, air leakage and major appliances;

Installation of up to 10 compact fluorescent light bulbs, high efficiency faucet aerators and shower heads, and hot water pipe wrap;

Installation of a programmable thermostat, if desired, at a discounted price of $21.89;

Incentives of up to $1,250 to complete recommended energy efficiency improvements; and

Incentivized weatherization work done by BPI certified CSG subcontractors.

The energy advisor will conduct the following tests as part of the energy assessment process:

Combustion safety - a diagnostic test of fuel-burning appliances for carbon monoxide levels;

Infrared camera scan that assesses air sealing and insulation opportunities.

Upon the conclusion of the assessment, the energy advisor will provide homeowners with a printout of their home's energy "road map" outlining a complete set of the energy saving home improvements they can make, and the incentives they are eligible to receive.
