Utility Sponsored Energy Efficiency Programs
The Arkansas Public Service Commission requires that investor-owned utilities administer energy-saving programs for their residential customers. The programs are implemented through utility providers and services are provided by energy-efficiency contractors (trade allies) such as Xcel Home Energy. We receive incentives from the utility that enables us to offer professional energy-efficiency solutions and improvements to you at NO COST.
Home Energy Assessment and Testing:
Weatherizing your home helps you save money by saving energy. It can also improve the comfort of your home. A home energy assessment should be your first step before making any energy-saving improvements. Professional energy-efficiency solutions can help you understand the whole picture of your home’s energy use. It can also help you determine how much energy your home uses, where your home is losing energy, and which problem areas and fixes you should prioritize to make your home more efficient and comfortable
The home energy assessment includes:
- Blower door test to measure building air tightness
- Duct blaster test to measure air leakage of the duct work
- Assessment of attic insulation to ensure the appropriate R-value
Implementing the recommendations of your home energy assessment helps you save money by saving energy.
We perform the following energy-efficiency measures:
- Insulation: adding attic insulation to the appropriate R-value
- Duct sealing and repair
- Air infiltration reduction (caulk, foam, weather stripping)
If your home qualifies, you may receive the home energy assessment, energy-efficiency measures and the following at NO COST due to utility sponsored programs.
- LED bulbs (up to 10)
- Advanced power strips
- Low-flow showerhead and aerators.
“XCEL provides an amazing service! From the original contact to the service call, their staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. My wife normally defers all home repairs to me, but she was involved with both visits and was overly impressed with the employees. We received over 6 hours of labor and materials for FREE! It is hard to believe that there is no catch, but they proudly make your house more efficient and don’t have a product to sell! I recommend having them come out to evaluate your house. I can’t wait to see the savings on my energy bills.”
“What an amazing deal! Who knew there was a service like this out there that would upgrade the efficiency of your home heating and cooling systems…all for FREE!! The team is not only professional, but proficient as well. They did an amazing job at my Mom’s home, blowing new insulation in the attic and sealing leaky ducts. We are very, very pleased with this service.”
