Watt Choices Offering Significant Discount on Whole-House Energy Audit
New Program Makes Homes More Comfortable While Saving on Energy Bills
PITTSBURGH – A house is a system. All its parts — from insulation and heating/cooling systems to windows and lights — need to operate in harmony to make it efficient and cozy. A substantial Watt Choices discount is available for customers who participate in Duquesne Light’s new Whole-House Energy Audit program, which can help Pittsburgh area homeowners enjoy year-round comfort while reducing their overall energy use.
Thanks to an instant Watt Choices rebate of $250, this extensive Whole-House Energy Audit will cost only $149. Households that meet income-eligibility guidelines can receive the audit at no charge. Every professional audit includes a thorough analysis of the home’s energy use and suggestions for improvement. The $149 fee also includes installation of compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs), smart power strips, and additional energy-saving equipment. Residents also will be provided with professional recommendations on potential upgrades that make sense for their homes, and the associated Watt Choices rebates available from Duquesne Light for those upgrades.
“Through our numerous Watt Choices options, many of our residential customers have taken basic steps to conserve energy in their homes,” said Dave Defide, manager of Customer Programs at Duquesne Light. “The Whole-House Energy Audit takes it to another level, providing a higher level of analysis and a wider range of options for customers to make their homes more comfortable, reduce electricity usage and save money.”
