Home Energy Savings Program

Would you like to start saving money on your home energy useage, while simultaneously helping the environment? 


Following is a great program our company heard about through an Elmhurst Cool Cities Coalition presentation:

The Home Energy Savings Program is a joint program of Nicor Gas and ComEd that makes it easy for you to improve the energy efficiency and comfort of your home.

They provide comprehensive Home Energy Assessments to identify promising energy-efficiency upgrades, and then provide instant rebates and prequalified contractors to help you complete the recommendations.

They'll even install some simple energy-saving products during the assessment. Currently assessments are only $49 and offer services that could cost as much as $500* elsewhere (promotional price valid while funds last).

Benefits include:

  • Instant rebates of 70% up to $1,750 when you complete recommended energy-efficiency improvements such as insulation and air sealing.
  • Free installation of up to 10 CFLs, high efficiency faucet aerators and showerheads, hot water and cold water pipe wrap
  • Installation of a programmable thermostat, if desired, at a discounted price of $22.62.
  • A customized Home Energy Savings report detailing ways to save up to 20%† on your energy usage.
