Quick Home Energy Check-Up

Quick Home Energy Check-Up

A Quick Home Energy Checkup (QHEC) is a quick and easy way to reduce your annual kWh usage and increase the savings that you’re already receiving by switching your rate. When you schedule a QHEC, an energy professional will come to your home and check a variety of different areas of your home to identify ways to help you save energy and money.

Requesting a QHEC is easy, just like our rate-switching services. Once you submit your request, one of our home energy representatives will contact you to schedule an appointment for a technician to conduct a 60-minute walk-through assessment on your home. Your technician will assess the condition of the following items:

Insulation Levels

Air Leakage

Heating & Cooling Systems

Windows & Doors

Lighting & Appliances

Water Heating Equipment

The technician’s assessments will be compiled into a report that summarizes important findings, recommended improvements as well as opportunities to reduce your energy use and costs while improving the comfort of your home. These may include:

LED Light Bulbs

Faucet Aerators

Efficient-Flow Fixed or Handheld Showerheads

Water Heater Pipe Insulation (Installed on hot and cold pipes six feet from the water heater)

“Smart” Power Strips

ShowerStart® Showerhead Adapter


You may be eligible to become a BGE PeakRewardsSM Member and have your current thermostat replaced with a professionally installed Wi-Fi enabled smart thermostat (valued at $269)—at no additional cost! Smart thermostats allow for mobile access to control your home’s climate, monitor energy efficiency and keep up with maintenance. Make sure to ask your technician about this great offer.
