HOME PERFORMANCE WITH ENERGY STAR® PROGRAM

The Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Process

A Contractor’s Step-By-Step Guide

Delmarva Power's Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Program takes a whole-house approach to making energy improvements, while ensuring the health and safety of the occupants is protected. These simple steps outline the process of a Home Performance with ENERGY STAR retrofit from start to finish.

Step
1

When a Delmarva Power customer in Maryland contacts you to discuss upgrading their home’s energy efficiency, discuss their concerns and schedule a Home Energy Assessment.

Step
2
Complete the comprehensive Home Energy Assessment at the Delmarva Power customer’s home. The assessment includes a complete visual inspection, diagnostic tests and installation of several simple, energy-saving measures such as energy-efficient lighting and efficient-flow showerheads.
Step
3
After completing the assessment, provide the Delmarva Power customer with a Home Energy Assessment Report that details the findings and recommendations for improvements. In the report, you will include any applicable rebates available from Delmarva Power and estimated energy savings.
Step

 Your Delmarva Power customer then decides which improvements to install and you perform the work. Possible energy efficiency improvements include:

  • Adding insulation and sealing air leaks
  • Sealing and insulating ductwork
  • Window replacements as part of a larger air sealing and insulation job
  • Improving heating and cooling systems
  • Upgrading lighting, appliances, and water heating equipment
Step
5
Test the end result for efficiency, and address any air quality or safety issues immediately.
Step
6

Within 30 days of the installation, submit the rebate application on behalf of your Delmarva Power customer.
