Free Energy Audit Newsflash

 Free Energy Audit

OG&E customers have one week left to sign up for a free home energy audit! You may be aware that OG&E offers a $50 energy audit walkthrough that comes with some simple services such as an air conditioner tune-up and duct sealing. What you may not know is that if you sign up between now and March 4th, this $50 fee is waived. 

If you’re leery about the term “audit”, don’t be.  During energy audits a contractor generally visits your home and identifies steps you can take that will improve your home’s energy efficiency and save you money on your electric bills. They aren’t trying to figure out what you are doing wrong, they are trying to find out what you can do better. Think more of a doctor’s visit for your house rather than a police raid. The information is specific and personalized to you and your home.  While some of the pricier energy efforts (like new appliances and better insulation) are well known, there are usually some super cheap and easy fixes you can do that will make your home more efficient. Audits range from basic walkthroughs to detailed quantitative analyses using fancy gadgets.  This OG&E one promises to be simple and to the point, with some added bonuses thrown in.

So what have you got to lose? Free is my personal favorite price. Ours is scheduled for March 31st.

We also had a fancier audit done recently… I’ll tell you about that later.
