“Ensuring an energy-efficient home requires a whole concept approach. From attic to basement and everything in between, a variety of potential upgrades and improvements can make for cooler summers, warmer winters and more cash in your wallet all year round. Take advantage of available energy efficiency programs in your area and embark on a “less is more” approach to energy. Saving for a rainy day is one thing, but saving on energy costs well into the future means you’re going to need a larger piggy bank.”
That’s a message from VAEEC Business Platinum member and March Featured Member of the Month Washington Gas to its customers, a message it backs up with rebates, resources and a new Online Home Energy Audit tool.
Who is Washington Gas?
Washington Gas, a WGL Holdings, Inc. company, delivers natural gas to more than one million residential, commercial and industrial customers throughout Washington, D.C., and the surrounding region. Washington Gas was founded in 1848, through a Congressional charter signed into law by President James K. Polk. The new company installed gas lights in the House and Senate chambers, the White House and along Pennsylvania Avenue.
What does Washington Gas offer to Virginia home and business owners?
Space heating is the largest energy consumer in a home, typically accounting for over 40 percent of a home’s energy consumption. It is also an area where significant energy savings can be realized. Currently Washington Gas offers Virginia residents a $300 rebate on a natural gas furnace with 90 percent or greater annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) and a $50 rebate on a Wi-Fi-enabled programmable thermostat.
They recently added to their portfolio of customer-friendly tools an Online Home Energy Audit. By answering a few simple questions, you get an energy score , savings estimate and upgrade recommendations that make the most sense for your home. It’s a smart, interactive feature for engaging customers.
