October is National Energy Awareness Month and it is the ideal time to make sure your home is ready for winter. Throughout the month, homeowners are encouraged to make simple changes and energy-saving improvements that could potentially reduce energy waste and save on energy costs.

Start saving now during National Energy Awareness Month with a Home Energy Savings assessment. The Home Energy Savings program, sponsored by Nicor Gas and ComEd, helps homeowners navigate the process of making your home more energy efficient.  A certified energy advisor will inspect your home and provide a customized report of opportunities to improve your home’s comfort and energy efficiency.

Additionally, the advisor will install compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs), energy-saving showerheads, faucet aerators and insulating pipe wrap at no extra cost. The assessment also qualifies you for an instant rebate of 50 percent, up to $1,250, on recommended energy-saving improvements such as insulation and air sealing. The work is completed by certified program contractors under Building Performance Institute (BPI) standards.

More than 4,000 Nicor Gas and ComEd customers have already improved the energy efficiency and comfort level of their homes. See what some satisfied participants had to say:

·         “Our energy advisor was very professional and explained the process during the entire assessment. He identified that our exhaust fans weren’t venting properly and also pointed out areas in our kitchen area where we needed insulation – no wonder we had ice dams above our windows every winter!” - Village of Glen Ellyn homeowner

·         “Through this program, I received quality work from a certified contractor for a fraction of the price it would cost me normally. This whole process was seamless from start to finish and the energy-efficient measures will pay for themselves in the years to come.” - Village of Lombard homeowner

The Home Energy Savings assessment is only $99, a $500 value*.  Nicor Gas and/or ComEd customers plus “all-electric**” customers are eligible for the assessment and instant rebate (certain program restrictions apply). If you are interested in helping us spread the word about energy efficiency, consider hosting a house party for friends and family and your assessment will be free.  Ask for more details when you contact our call center.
