Energy Audit in Maryland per EPA
According to the EPA, existing houses offer several opportunities for energy efficient improvements. To make houses more energy efficient the government recommends a home energy audit.
The EPA says "energy audits assess how much energy a home consumes. It also evaluates measures to make the home more energy efficient".

The best way to achieve comfort, efficiency and healthy indoor air quality is to look at each part.
Pepco Energy Audit Eligibility in Maryland

The $100 Pepco energy audit is valid for Pepco customers with an active account. The customer must apply through Pepco's HPwES Program.
The customer must be receiving electric and/or natural gas service from Pepco.
The offer is not valid for new construction, multi-family dwellings or commercial buildings.
How to Participate - Pepco Energy Audit Program
Pepco makes this very easy! The first step to get an energy audit is to select a participating contractor of your choice. You can schedule a Pepco energy audit with Hometrust here.
Once the Pepco energy audit is complete the data will get entered into the modeling software. The program calculates eligible rebates. It also calculates how much energy you can save if you get the work done as prescribed.
How the Maryland Pepco Rebates Work
Home "retrofits" are improvements that your auditor discovered during the audit. Retrofits improve comfort, reduce energy usage and create better indoor air quality.
Maryland provides incentives to off-set retrofit costs.
After verifying that the house has achieved the program goal a rebate check is the only item left. Your approved contractor can discuss payment options with you.
Pepco Energy Audit: Two Benefits
A Pepco energy audit is a key that can unlock two great things:
1. Secret ways to improve comfort and energy efficiency
2. Incentives through the state of Maryland to offset your costs
Considering the fact that the refrigerator repair company will charge you $80 just to walk through your door, a Maryland home energy audit is well worth it!
What to Expect from a Pepco Energy Audit
A comprehensive Pepco energy audit can guide you to energy savings and comfort. If you are not sure what improvement should be next, a Pepco energy audit can set a clear path for you.
How Long? On average, a Pepco energy audit takes about three hours to complete. You must be home during the audit, however you are not required to follow the technician the entire time. Each auditor has their own style. Hometrust will spend about fifteen minutes in the beginning with you and thirty minutes at the end of your Maryland home energy audit. We believe that is enough time to thoroughly explain our procedure and our findings.
Too many Maryland home energy audits fall short on customer experience. A Pepco energy audit in Maryland should be interactive and enlightening. It should uncover ways to improve comfort, energy efficiency and indoor air quality.
