The arrival of summer brings family trips to the beach, backyard barbecues and for many homes, peak energy use.
Fortunately, Washington Gas makes saving energy surprisingly easy — for the community and for their customers. If you are a homeowner, the season is right to take advantage of programs and services from Washington Gas that can help save energy, money and the environment.
Before you plan your next outdoor picnic, take a moment to use the free Washington Gas Home Energy Profile Tool, available on their website, washingtongasrebates.com/profile.
Within a few minutes, you will get a comprehensive analysis of your home’s energy use and learn how you can save energy through identifying potential cost savings. The Home Energy Profile Tool is available in both English and Spanish.
Big energy savings can begin by making small changes in and around your home, especially during the summer months. To help get you get started, Washington Gas is making its free energy conservation kit available to all Virginia residential customers who complete the Home Energy Profile.
Customers can simply request the kit once completing the Home Energy Profile. The items contained in the free kit will help you conserve energy and reduce utility bills. The items in the free kit include:
- A High-Efficiency Showerhead: Enjoy strong, consistent water pressure from a high-efficiency showerhead, while saving water and the energy required to heat the water.
- A Bathroom Faucet Aerator: Made to fit bathroom faucets, this product maintains great water pressure while conserving water and energy.
- Self-Adhesive Door Sweep: Prevent air leaks under entry doors by creating a tight seal between the door and the door’s threshold.
- A Roll of Closed Cell Foam Weather Strip: Seal air leaks around doors
and windows to prevent outside drafts from coming in and to prevent air inside your home from escaping.
