Delmarva, Pepco, and BGE Power’s Quick Home Energy Check-up (QHEC) is a fast, easy way to increase the energy efficiency of your home. A team of BPI-Certified professionals will install up to $200 worth of energy savings products in your home. Benefits for your home: Energy-efficient lighting that can last for 10 years, low flow faucet aerators, multi-setting efficient showerheads, smart strips, and electric hot water heater tank and pipe wrap. Your BPI professional will prepare a summary energy report assessing the condition of the following items for your home:

  • Insulation levels
  • Air leakage
  • Heating and cooling systems
  • Windows and doors
  • Lighting and appliances
  • Water heating equipment
Savings and your Bottom Line:  There is no cost to you for the products, the professional installation, or energy assessment for your home.
  • Reduced maintenance costs – CFL bulbs can last up to 10 years without burning out!
  • Reduce Energy and Water Use
    • CFL bulbs produce the same lighting at a fraction of the energy as traditional bulbs.
    • Our showerheads and aerators can often reduce 40-50% of the water usage versus traditional measures.
    • Tank wrap allows your hot water heater to work less as well as provides an extra layer of protection to prevent any tampering with the device.
    • Save Money!
      • If you pay either utility bill for electric or water you can expect to start seeing savings immediately!

How is this program possible?

Delmarva, BGE,  PEPCO and other utilities across Maryland must meet certain regulations each year to reduce their energy consumption and carbon outputs. Programs, such as this one, help achieve those goals while also providing a savings for the utility customers.  How long does this process take? The entire process takes approximately 1 hour.  This time can vary depending on the size of your home and the number of questions that you have for our BPI Certified Professional.

Is This Program Available Outside of Maryland?

Unfortunately at this time the program is limited to Maryland. However, C.A.R.E. Offers energy saving solutions for all homes throughout our service area. Contact us today to find out how we can reduce your energy use and save you $$$!
