GREENSBURG, Pa., May 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Residential customers of West Penn Power can earn up to $1,200 in rebates through a new home energy audit program. The Whole House Program also can help customers increase the comfort of their home while saving on their monthly energy bills.
Contractors in the Whole House Program will visit participating customers' homes to identify potential energy efficiency improvements through a two-part, comprehensive home energy audit. Using diagnostic testing and state-of-the-art home energy software, these contractors can predict energy savings for any number of possible home improvements, including air or duct sealing, insulation, duct insulation or the installation of new energy-efficient windows and doors.
