The Energy Efficient Mortgage Specialists
Home Performance with ENERGY STAR, a nationally recognized program sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Department of Energy, offers a comprehensive, whole-house approach to improving energy efficiency and comfort at home. A drafty home, rooms that are too hot or too cold, and high energy bills are all common problems for homeowners.
Rather than focusing on individual components, such as single-paned windows, an old air conditioning system, or leaky ductwork, we employ an integrated whole-house approach. Our BPI Certified Building Analysts use modern diagnostic tools and thorough visual inspections to assess how improvements to any combination or all of these components can work together to obtain better performance. A quality installation of a new heating or air conditioning system, installing replacement windows, or adding more insulation may fix part of the problem, but the way to better results is through analyzing each house as a total system.
Homeowners across the country who have already taken advantage of this program are seeing documented savings of 20% or more on their energy bills. Georgia Power sponsors the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program in the Atlanta area and offers its customers additional rebates of up to $1,900 for energy audits and improvement work.
