Free Energy Audit Program
If your home is ten or more years old and you are a Austin Energy electric customer, we can perform a free energy audit that can show you how you can reduce energy use and enjoy greater comfort. If energy improvements are indicated, our comfort adviser can go over costs and benefits and explain available cash rebates and low-interest financing programs through Velocity Credit Union (available with approved credit) that can help make the project even more affordable.
If your home is less than 10 years old, an energy audit costs $225 and can still provide valuable insight into high utility bills and comfort issues.
Home Performance with Energy Star® Program
McCullough is a Registered Contractor in Austin Energy's award-winning Home Performance with Energy Star program (HPwES). The HPwES program is designed to help homeowners make their homes more comfortable and energy efficient by providing cash rebates and low-interest financing for energy saving measures such as a new central AC or heat pump, attic insulation, air duct sealing or replacement, solar window treatments and home sealing and weatherstripping.
Quick Energy Calculation
Austin Energy customers can use this rule of thumb to know if your system is working efficiently. Your highest summer electric bill should be about $0.07 per square foot – or about $140 for a 2,000 square foot home. If your bills are higher than this, call us at (512) 280-0011 for a free energy audit.
